2013 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 was the challenge.
On 4 August 2013 Graham completed the 100 mile race in 6 hrs and 30 minutes.

“What an amazing experience! Thank you so much to family, friends and business colleagues for their generous support, for such a great cause”

GSD® CEO, Graham Shapiro finished the London Marathon in 5hrs 45mins!
It’s been quite a 6 month journey for Graham. At week 8 of training on a 15 mile run Graham picked up a cronic ITB (Iliotibial band syndrome) injury in his right knee. During the final weeks of preparation Graham was advised by his sports physio and osteopath not to run at all for those final 3 weeks and just continue with cardio training.
During the Marathon at mile 9 Graham’s ITb injury flared up. He decided on previous advice given to stop every mile for the last 17 miles, stretch for 5 mins and try to continue running..1 mile at a time..although painful it worked!
” I cannot even begin to thank everyone enough for their donations and support during this Marathon. It’s this and the brave challenge that my mother-in-law has had to endure with Dimentia that gave me the willpower to fight through the pain and finish!”
Graham has raised so far £3,127.48 for The Mental Health Foundation and £1,200.00 for The Mase Group. Online link uk.virginmoneygiving.com/grahamshapiro
