Michael Wakelin's fundraising page

Michael's London Marathon

Wakelin is a veteran fund-raiser running half marathons, but this is his first attempt at the full 26 miles. Last time out he took on Mo Farrah in the Macclesfield Half Marathon and as you can imagine, it was no contest…


 “I looked behind me as I approached the finish and strangely Mo was nowhere to be seen.” Wakelin remembers. Attempts were made to get a comment from the world champion but Mo’s camp was strangely uncommunicative. The person who answered the phone said, “We’ve never heard of this Wakelin person - or Macclesfield. Now please go away."


For the London Marathon 2018, the usual sponsorship bidding war has started for Wakelin’s shorts and bandana but your donations are still very welcome.  In order to maximize the amount donated to the L’Arche Community, Wakelin has waived his appearance fee - so please give generously.
