Platanias man from Cambridge, 74, to run Athens marathon for charities

Peter Saunders from Cambridge now  a resident in Platanias, Chania, will be running the Athens Marathon on November 12th 2017 to raise funds for good causes that have special significance for him. 

Peter’s chosen charities are EACH (children’s hospice in Cambridge, England) and Annousakeio (Kissamos). 

This will be Peter’s 13th Marathon, which is quite an achievement at his age of nearly 74. As part of his training schedule he ran a half-marathon at Heralkion, Crete on 1st October and made good time.

Peter is involved with a number of fundraising activities, including a just giving sponsorship page and a ‘Calendar Girls’ 2018 calendar featuring a number of Peter’s female friends.
