Staff and supporters of World Land Trust (WLT) cheered on Hedd Thomas as he ran the Virgin London Marathon to raise funds for the Trust.

The London Marathon is 26 miles, starting from Blackheath and finishing at The Mall, alongside St James’s Park.

So far Hedd has raised more than £1,200 towards his target of £1,500. He is WLT’s first ever London Marathon runner and he was selected by ballot in 2014.

As part of his marathon training schedule, Hedd completed the Anglesey Half Marathon on 1 March 2015 in a time of two hours and ten minutes. He said of the London Marathon: “The marathon was exhilarating and exhausting, but I managed to hold in there and complete it. It was great to have World Land Trust there to support me, as well as the many thousands of others lining the streets.” Hedd completed the marathon in four hours and 43 minutes.

Hedd ran for WLT because he is determined to help protect the world’s threatened ecosystems, a cause that’s close to his heart. Money raised from the race will go towards WLT’s Action Fund, providing support to conservation projects that most urgently need it around the world.

WLT staff were on the London Marathon route in the area of Tower Hill from 8am on Sunday 26 April.
