Ten runners came together to raise more than £15,000 for Racing Welfare when participating in the London Marathon, the charity organisation announced on Monday. The group who completed the 26.2-mile course on Sunday included Richard Cosgrave, who has received support from Racing Welfare having sustained a fall four years ago which resulted in a broken neck. He was joined by the likes of Chris Martin, assistant trainer to Archie Watson in Lambourn, Harrison Mills, strategy manager at the Jockey Club, and Sophie Webber, brand marketing assistant at Goffs.

Daisy Felton, Racing Welfare fundraising executive, said, “All of the participants running in aid of Racing Welfare at this year's London Marathon put in a stellar effort to raise more that £15k for the charity, with more funds continuing to come in following the event. The dedication they've shown to train, fundraise and complete the event is admirable and all of us at Racing Welfare would like to thank them and celebrate their achievements. Their hard work will help to ensure we can continue to be there for racing's people when they need us most.”
