Wombles run the London Marathon
Jesuit Missions had two wombles take part in the London Marathon this year as part of their team of 26 runners.
Richard Hargreaves, a Stonyhurst old boy, bravely donned the Jesuit Missions Womble costume, along with Jesuit Missions marathon regular John Jackson. The two ran together in a very respectable time of 5:32. They were also spotted on the TV report of the London Marathon (see below).
