Kaye Nutman about this book: Inspired by the event that overtook my nephew when his 2 year old was diagnosed with Leukaemia, this book was originally going to be called 'Running for a Cause'. Wanting to broaden the scope of this Record Book, I decided that I wanted to appeal to ALL Charity Marathoners, no matter what they were doing to raise money for their particular cause - be it Uni-cycling or practising for a Marathon Yo-Yo event! Being a volunteer Biographer I also felt the need to encourage people not only to record training and get sponsors, but to write the story behind their efforts as a memento for future generations. There is plenty of space for writing and recording, adding photos and memorabilia, and thinking ahead to the next event. This paperback book begins with two brief stories - that of my nephew and his son, and a PCSO friend running daily, to support the families of fallen policemen and women. After that, the book is dedicated to the writer in YOU, to record YOUR story.
50% of all Royalties are going to the NECCR fund (Children's Cancer) in Northumberland, UK.

Great Log book
With this book I have everything I need to log my training. It is clear and very easy to use and something to look back on when training starts for another marathon to see where it all began. The true life stories are an inspiration and an insight into what drives people to train for marathons.
