Everyone at Whizz-Kidz wants to pass on our sincerest thanks to Iva Barr.

After taking part in her 20th London Marathon and fourth for Whizz-Kidz‬ aged 88 years old she's decided to call time on her marathon career.

During yesterday's race Iva reached Mile 15 but wasn't feeling her usual best and as an experienced marathon runner decided not to carry on.

Iva still had a fantastic time and says she will never forget her final attempt at the London Marathon course.

She sends everyone her love, especially the young people, and is looking forward to a relaxing few days watching the snooker.

All of us here at Whizz-Kidz are inspired by Iva, who will continue to run for fun with her friends at Bedford Harriers.
