Croxley Massage Therapy had the pleasure of working at the London Marathon 2016 for the charity Epilepsy UK, giving out well deserved massages to the brave finishers. With the first runner for the charity finishing in under 2 hours 50, our services were quickly required to ease the aches and pains including the emotional toll it had clearly taken on the runners.
We worked with some lovely people both runners and the volunteers who worked with us at the stand, giving out sandwiches, sweets, water and there was even a glass of bubbly to welcome the runners home.
The weather wasn’t the best but I am delighted to say that we were able to massage around forty runners including the last one home, a lovely young woman who was running in memory of her boyfriend who passed away from this terrible disease. It was truly inspirational to say the least and we cant wait until next year.
