Super Shakil Secures Gold In adidas City Run Fundraiser

A super fundraising marathon running supporter of our Ability Bow rehabilitation gym, has secured a gold medal for his efforts in 'conquering' all four corners of London's adidas City Run series, following his excellent attempt in the Fulham 10k on Sunday 18 November. 

Bow-based Shakil Miah, 29, completed the latest of his marathon entries amidst 8,000 supporters on the circular flat-race route; which started and finished near Eel Brook Common and took in west London highlights such as Chelsea FC's Stamford Bridge stadium. 

Shakil, who works as a PE teacher at Firs Farm Primary School in north London, decided to run for our disabilities and long-term health conditions exercise support service following many past running fundraising attempts worldwide and within the UK. 

Fundraising Aims 

Also running for our Ability Bow team in next year's VirginMoney London Marathon and aiming to raise at least £1,350, Shakil says he's determined to help our service and 'give back to the community' that he's grown up in. 

Speaking after Sunday's event and after receiving his gold medal - which is given to all runners who compete in all of the adidas City Run events across the Capital - Shakil said: "The Fulham 10k was a race I really enjoyed and a great way to finish the year with a gold medal and I can now enjoy a break before focusing on my next adventure for Ability Bow next April in the VirginMoney London Marathon. 

"Ability Bow has been amazingly supportive to me so far since I've joined their sporting fundraising team and I'm so glad to have chosen to run and raise money for this amazing charity. 

"Since visiting the gym earlier this month, I've seen what an incredible gym this is, including how it's so effective with every item of equipment fully accessible to all and for me, I feel it's time to step up and help people with disabilities and long-term health conditions in my local community and raise more awareness and funding for Ability Bow."
