A COMMITTED teacher from Waingels College in Woodley will be taking on the London Marathon for the second year in a row.

Reahgan Quartermaine, 37, will be running for national disability charity Sense this weekend.

Mr Quartermaine completed his first marathon for the charity last year.

The gruelling race took him 4 hours and 15 minutes to complete at what was the hottest London Marathon on record.

This year, he hopes to complete the marathon in cooler conditions and in under 4 hours.

Mr Quartermaine said: "It's a privilege to be selected to run the 2019 London Marathon for Sense.

"In 2018, I was able to fulfil a bucket list dream and cross the finish line of the great, and very warm London Marathon, raising £1500 for Sense.

"I'm excited to take on this challenge for them again and raise money for such an incredible charity."

Richard Kramer, chief executive at Sense, said: "We’re delighted and grateful that Reahgan has chosen to support Sense again by taking on the incredible challenge of running the London Marathon.

"It's thanks to people like Reahgan that Sense is able to support people with complex disabilities, including those who are deafblind, to communicate and experience the world.

"We wish Reahgan the very best of luck on the day and look forward to cheering him on at the London Marathon."
