bto Associate Kirsteen Maclean’s New York Marathon for Yorkhill Children’s Charity

18 December 2015

It’s hard to appreciate the full extent of Kirsteen’s training for the New York Marathon on the 1st November 2015. An experienced marathon runner, she put in the training for months beforehand including early morning pre-work runs and weekend ‘mini marathons’ in the build-up to the race, while also finding time to throw in the Great North Run in Newcastle in September for good measure! And all this was on top of working full time as an associate in bto’s busy commercial dispute resolution department.

The largest marathon in the world, the atmosphere in New York on the day was electric and Kirsteen managed to run the 26 miles and 385 yards marathon route in the fantastic time of 4 hours 45 minutes.

“Although I did all the ‘right’ training, the actual marathon was a lot harder than I anticipated and there was lots of pain during and after it. However, what really kept me going was the fact that so many of you had sponsored me to do this and I couldn’t let the Yorkhill Children’s Charity down.”

Kirsteen’s enthusiasm, determination and great spirit energised a superb fundraising effort for the Yorkhill Children’s Charity, bto’s chosen charity for 2015. With everyone’s generosity we managed to raise an outstanding £3,431.54 in total for Yorkhill. A huge thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser.
