Neil Caddy - Marathon ManIs it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope, it's Caddy!

Some of you may not know but Neil used to be an professional international athlete, representing Great Britain across the globe. 

His best time for running the 'mile' in competition was 3 mins and 55 secs but since he hung up his trainers, well to be frank - he's let himself go a bit.

So after an invitation for Neil set off the Santa Sprint for CHICKS in Callington last year, Tim Bunting paid a visit to the studio to re-issue the invite for 2014, and this time there was an extra little invitation - for him to ALSO run the London Marathon 2015!

Unfortunately after a week off work and some training runs under his belt, there was an expectation that Neil would be fighting fit for his marathon training, until Tina fell over Neil's crutches.

So Neil has sadly had to pull out of the London Marathon 2015 after the injury to his knee.

CHICKS is an amazing charity, that gives respite breaks here in Cornwall to children and families that really need it. You can find out more about them online here.

Neil's marathon is over for 2015

After a training run 10 days ago, in which Neil finished the event hobbling, he's been on crutches ever since.

Yesterday, physio Aaron took a look at his injury and this was the prognosis

 
Sad faces... especially for CHICKS but we'll be working with them through this year - and despite the fact that Tina offered to replace Neil, or to push Neil round in a wheelchair, the security rules won't allow it, so all that can be done is defer the place until 2016.

If you feel so minded, please continue to donate to their amazing charity.
