A member of the Dagenham 88 running club who raised over £1,800 for the British Forces Foundation finished the London Marathon in four hours and 39 minutes.

The atmosphere on race day was “electric”, he said.

Shaun Holder chose to fundraise for the British Forces Foundation because he thinks there is a “lack of recognition” for the people who serve in the armed forces in this country.

He said: “It was an unforgettable experience, the toughest but most rewarding race I’ve been a part of.

“It was a very emotional day, having family and friends cheering me on as well as the amazing crowd.

“I am also very proud to have raised over £1,800 for the British Forces Foundation.”

This year’s race was the third marathon Shaun has run. He was one of a number of Dagenham 88 runners taking part.
