"Homelessness has increased over the past few years with the cost of living crisis and other factors, and homeless people are in a situation where they are getting less help from the government, so supporting charities like The Bridge is extremely important to me."


The marathon itself played host to over 32,000 runners, making it the city's most well-attended marathon to date.


Starting under the iconic Trafford Arch at White City Circle on the A56, the 26.2 mile route led runners past the Old Trafford football stadium and towards the city centre. From there, they headed southwards towards Altringham before continuing on towards the finish line outside the county cricket ground.


Lyndsay herself was joined by 10 other people from her running club, Squirrels, including her running partner for the day, Martin, who ran alongside her. Both then joined the rest of their team for a well-earned dinner in the evening to celebrate.


In spite suffering an injury and several blisters, Lyndsay reached the finish line in an impressive 4 hours and 22 minutes.




“Three marathons and three blisters! Taking on my third marathon at Manchester was such a different challenge this time as I’d been injured during training.  The unbelievable support from the spectators out on the course and knowing I was running to raise money for such a good cause really carried me through those last few tough miles.
I’m so grateful for all of the support I have received from family and friends and complete strangers shouting my name! I’m proud to have been able to raise what I have for The Bridge and I hope I may have inspired others to take part in challenges to raise money for important causes!”

Lyndsay raised an incredible £673.75, as part of Howes Percival's 2024 fundraiser for The Bridge. The law firm's fundraising campaign forms part of their year-long pledge to support the homeless charity and their day centre services for people who are experiencing homelessness in Leicester.


Massive thank you to Lyndsay for running the Manchester marathon in aid of The Bridge, and for raising both much needed funds and awareness of homelessness in the city.
