St Laurence School pupil raring to go for BHM

St Laurence School student Ieuan Osborn will join more than 10,000 others on March 13 to run the Bath Half Marathon for charity.

The 17-year-old, who turns 18 the day before the race, is raising money for Bath’s Royal United Hospital cancer centre appeal and has already passed his £250 target.

The Year 13 pupil has never run the distance before and is feeling a mixture of nerves and excitement ahead of the 35th edition of 13.1 mile route.

“I am raring to go and do it now,” said Ieuan. “There is a bit of nerves and excitement too. I just want to finish it and post a good time.

“Training is going very well, I am not overdoing it and I feel ready for it. I started training back in December and to be honest I just want to get it over and done with.

“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated. It is fantastic to raise the money so quickly – it it a very nice surprise.”

Ieuan chose the cancer centre for his fundraising efforts as his parents both work at the hospital.

“It is for a great cause and hopefully we can raise a little bit more before March 13. If I complete it, I think it will be a good way to remember my 18th birthday.”
