Willy Marathon logo

Willy Castle will be running his 5th London Marathon on Sunday 23 April 2017 and for the third year will be running in support of the St David’s Marist Foundation; specifically the Willy & Dorothy Castle Sports & Cultural Bursary Fund and the Old Boys’ Bursary Fund.

Over the past two years the Marathon Campaign has raised R 140 000 towards the above bursary programmes, through the phenomenal support of our St David’s community and the running efforts of the redoubtable Mr Castle.
