Tell us your favourite running excuse and win £100 for charity

Continuing our eight weeks of #marathonchallenge – this week we’re inviting people into the London Marathon confessional to tell us about their best “running excuse”.

Keep an eye on our twitter and Facebook pages for your chance to win £100 for your chosen charity simply by telling us the number one excuse you give yourself to avoid training.

And don’t forget to check back next Monday when we’ll be launching the fourth in our eight weeks of #marathonchallenge

For a little bit of inspiration, check out this from Rob Eades.
