Marathon Stats

Emma & Sarah-Jayne Lishman ran the London Marathon on Sunday 3rd October 2021…  and smashed their fundraising target. Here we give you the lowdown on their key stats:


£5170 total raised for the Cure Parkinson’s Trust: a cause close to their hearts. This grand total far exceeded their fundraising aspirations when they set out to train for the marathon back in 2019…!

£450 of which was raised from the Lishman’s Raffle supported by Yorkshire Vintners, Love Brownies, Edward St Bakery, Community Cutlery, Cryer & Stott, InGear Coaching and Lishman’s (obviously) .

4 hrs 31 minutes: Time taken for Emma and Sarah-Jayne to smile their way through 26.2 gruelling miles around London’s landmarks

431 hours: Time spent browsing elaborate socks and trainers over the 21 month on-off training programme

pre-marathon2: Chiropody Appointments required, post-marathon

3: Bottles of Crémant du Jura consumed during the marathon weekend

16: Weekends dominated by lengthy training runs

1: Vow to never get talked into running a marathon again

5170: Thank yous to each and every one of you who supported us with donations, banners, moral support, blister wisdom, ‘isotonic’ sausage rolls and training advice over the last 21 months.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE SUPPORT: The Cure Parkinson’s Trust means a great deal to us and does such important work.
