Hundreds of runners, including a cancer survivor with a prosthetic leg, raised a record £30,000 for charity at the weekend.

Around 400 runners took part in the Stand Up to Cancer ‘Sprintathon’ – a world record attempt to try and run a marathon in relay in the fastest time – at Little Marlow Athletics Track on Saturday.

Cricket star Andrew Strauss joined GB under-20 champion Kristal Awuah and cancer survivor Jimmy Hall, who brought the baton home in a “nail-biting” finale with a time of 1hr 51 mins and one second, after being fitted with a prosthetic leg last year.

Organisers said this was narrowly slower than last year’s time of 1hr 46 mins and 33 seconds, but quicker than the previous record of 1hr 56 mins and 54 seconds set in 2015 in Limerick.

This year, organisers added a new team competition element, which saw teams of four compete against each other to win the Sprintathon Showdown trophy with the fastest lap.

Marlow mayor Jocelyn Towns cheered on the runners.

Lap 46 from Runners Retreat in Marlow posted an “exceptional” time of 53 seconds dead in the showdown. Emerging athletics stars Charlotte Bellamy, Tash Taylor and Steph Clitheroe powered round the track with around 13.25 seconds each.

Former marathon runner and father-of-three Mr Hall had his leg amputated after he was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, in September 2015. 

Spokesman Lucy Davies said: “Folks of Marlow with some very special guests again united to run a marathon in a giant sprint relay 105.5 times around Marlow athletics track to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer.

“[It] was about raising money to accelerate the fight against cancer and so it was fantastic to smash last year’s fundraising total [of £25,000].”

Organisers said at the time of going to print, fundraising was approaching the £30,000 mark with donations “still coming in thick and fast”.
