At least four Uckfield runners were among those completing the London Marathon on Sunday. They were Camilla (Millie) Atkinson, Maria Mann, Daniel Sims and Charlie Gravett.
Millie finished the 26.2 mile course in six hours and 40 minutes. She really struggled mid-way but was thrilled to collect her medal and to learn she has raised £3,125 for CLIC Sargent, a charity which supported her through cancer as a child.

Maria finished in four hours, 50 minutes, and said that after a really bad week with fibromyalgia she woke up on Sunday feeling good for the first time in ages. “I smiled the whole way round,” she said. She has raised nearly £3,000 for St Peter and St James Hospice.
