Tony Cook’s marathon effort for MIND

Tony Cook, the retired founder of comms billing specialists Union Street, was one of thousands of charity runners who conquered last Sunday’s London Marathon, raising £6,500 for mental health charity Mind.

Running alongside his two sons Frank and Ollie, Tony completed the 26-mile 385-yard course in just under four hours

“This was my first ever marathon and it was an unforgettable experience,” he said.

“We ran together all the way round and I admit Frank and Ollie had to give me a lot of help to get over the line, but it was all worth it. I’m delighted we finished in under four hours, but more important was the money we raised for MIND and I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported us.”
