Musicians who ran the 2019 London Marathon

Krzysztof Chorzelski of the Belcea Quartet:

Andy Mason raised £2,000 for Music in Hospitals.

Who else?

UPDATE: From Faber Music: Good luck to two Faber composers who will be running the London Marathon today. Anne Boyd has flown over from Australia to compete at the tender age of 73!! And Vikki Stone will be trying to break the Guinness World Record for a female runner dressed in a dog costume – she will be running for the Dogs Trust.


Leon Bosch, former principal double-bass of St-Martin-in-the-Fields.

Robert Simmons, violinist in Royal Ballet Sinfonia (Birmingham Royal Ballet) and Estilo String Quartet, raised nearly £2800 for Mind Charity. He finished in 3 hours 40 and 53 seconds.

  • Two composers that I am aware of. Anne Boyd came over from Australia to compete at the age of 73! Her time 5 hours 40. And Vikki Stone also completed the course, dressed as a dog – raising funds for the Dogs Trust. 4 hours 19.

  • The Stirling marathon was on the same day. BBC SSO musicians Graeme Brown and Anne Brincourt both completed the event on Sunday. Graeme raised £1500 for MND Scotland. Congratulations to all runners, great work!
