Scout Radio at the London Marathon 2017

The London Marathon is one of the iconic days on the British calendar with thousands running for causes close to their hearts and millions watching on from the course and further afield.  It is a day Scout Radio loves, being able to suppose Scout runners who have dedicated months of their lives to training and fundraising is a privilege.

We caught up with some of this years Scout runners, Dave Mills, Kevin Stone, Simon Read and Stuart Wilson at the end of the gruelling 26.2 mile race.

Its not just the runners who have there stories to tell on marathon day. The London marathon course is littered with Scout Groups helping to the day as smooth as possible for the runners. We went to mile 11 to find out how Southwark and Lewisham Districts Scouts were helping the runners

Well done to all the Scouting Runners that have taken part and have helped to raise thousands of pounds for national and local scouting causes.
