Chef to run London Marathon
Humphry’s Head Chef Chris Wheeler to run the Virgin London Marathon 2013 for Capital FM's Help A Capital Child!
On the 21st April, our brilliant chef Chris Wheeler will be sprinting around the 26 mile London course in support of Capital FM’s Help A Capital Child (HACC), alongside breakfast presenter Pandora. “In a moment of madness I decided to enter Capital FM's competition to win one of ten special 'Help A Capital Child' charity places to run in the Virgin London Marathon 2013 and they picked me out of hundreds of applicants!” If running just over 26 miles is not a challenge enough, Chef will be hauling a large stock pot along with him for charitable spectators to empty their pockets into!
“Seven years ago I ran the marathon flipping a pancake all the way, so thought this year (with 10 weeks prep time and no visits in the past 7 years to the gym!) I’d do it with a stock pot. With your help, I aim to raise £10,000 for Help a Capital Child which supports children and young people affected by abuse, homelessness, disability, poverty and illness in and around London.”
Don’t be alarmed if you see a man wearing a toque running around the golf course with a large stock pot in-tow over the next few weeks- it is most likely to be Chris doing some last minute preparations in between his busy schedule! “I am very fortunate to be able to train at Stoke Park and in the lovely gym here and you may see me running round the area in my chef whites!”
