|We would like to thank our marathon runners, Poppy Thompson, Richard O’Brien, Gemma Quinn, Jennifer George and Sebastian Yeates, who will be joining thousands of runners and spectators on the streets of London on Sunday 23 April 2017 to run the 26.2-miles (42.2KM) of the 2017 Virgin London Marathon.
We are full of admiration and pride for the amazing efforts our runners are making on the behalf of the SES, both on and off their local urban streets, parks, country roads and footpaths.
As you know, the SES is the oldest active exploration society in the world and it concentrates on scientific projects, delivering aid and helping others to do likewise through the SES Explorer Awards. The SES works out of a converted garage in Dorset. It is a very low overhead organisation, and all funds are spent wisely. For example, when giving aid to remote overseas communities in need, the aid is delivered in person, it is all accounted for and photos are taken so you can see for yourself how your sponsorship has been used.
