Tim Farron

Golden Bond Runner

Hi, I’m Tim and I’m proud to be taking on this year’s London Marathon for Brathay to raise money for the amazing work that they do supporting young people and their families.

I’m the MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale which is not only a fantastic place to represent but also a stunning one to live, work and run in.

I love running on the fells and by the lakes with only the music in my earphones - mostly Prefab Sprout and The Avalanches - and occasionally my springer spaniel Jasper for company.

For the past three years I’ve taken on the mad challenge of running every day in January, to raise money for some brilliant local charities and also as an attempt to get fit after the Christmas holidays.

This will be my first ever London Marathon and I’m so excited to be doing it for Brathay who have been incredibly supportive. I won’t let them down!



Goal: £10,000
