Only 26 miles to go!

Drake supporter Martin Johnson will be running the 2013 Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday 26 May 2013 and is looking for others to join him and raise money for Drake Music Scotland.

‘My father was an Edinburgh musician, composer and music historian, and after he died in 2009, I was looking for an inspiring cause to support, partly in his memory. Drake does really brilliant work with young people and I’ve been supporting them for the last couple of years. Doing a marathon was something I’d been toying with but basically been too scared to sign up to! But I’ve finally done it. Edinburgh is the obvious one to do, as it’s my native city, and a fairly flat course out to East Lothian.

‘I have set up justgiving page with a fundraising target of £1,000, but it would be great if other Drake supporters also wanted to sign up and we could see how much we could raise!  I’d be more than happy to compare notes as the serious training starts later in the year!’

Get in touch if you would like to support Martin or are interested in running the Edinburgh Marathon for Drake Music Scotland.  Alternatively you can donate to Martin’s target and sign up to run directly via the links below…
