Team Hilditch Complete the Edinburgh Marathon 2014
The Hilditch Marathon Team successfully finished the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday 25th May 2014. Team Leader, Danny O’Brien, led the charge with a convincing 4 hours 10 minutes, followed by Mike Hilditch on 4 hours 13 minutes, Hugo Hilditch 4 hours 30 minutes and Luke Chapman (who bravely battled on even after a leg injury at mile 8) on 4 hours 52 minutes.
Well stocked up on Scottish porridge, the team set out in high spirits, yet somewhat nervous about the prospect of running 26.2miles; however the Edinburgh atmosphere was undeniably electric. Despite the unpredictable weather the marathon was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for participants and spectators alike. For first time marathon runners it was a true test of endurance and determination in the name of charity; the Team raised £1,250.00 for the Amalthea Trust, which supports Medical Engineering courses in Uganda. The donations page will remain open until 25th June for anyone who wishes to contribute to a good cause.
