*Spoiler* He didn't get away
WTC members do like a bit of dressing up now and again and some of them have been doing it whilst raising money for cancer charities.
Two of our committee members, Phil Wortley and Andrew Harden-Sweetnam, along with friend Karl Offord have been dressing up as super heroes/villains and pounding the pavements around Wallingford (and more recently Reading) whilst training for the London Marathon. The trio are currently heading up the Reading Half Marathon website after the race at the weekend. They are raising money for Children with Cancer UK after Karl's 3 year old son was diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2022. They have raised over £6,500 so far towards their ambitious target of £10,000. You can find out more about the team and how to donate at www.teamrobin.uk and https://www.justgiving.com/team/team-robin
The plan had been to stay together for the whole race, however it seems that masks limit visibility and by the end, The Riddler was chasing the Dynamic Duo. Batman and Robin finished in 1 hour 52 mins (a PB for Karl) and The Riddler finished in a recent personal best time of 1 hour 56 minutes.
