The Turk’s Head, St Margarets, to host Event Director of the TCS London Marathon

The Turk’s Head in St Margarets is cementing its position at the heart of the South West London running fraternity by hosting an event with Hugh Brasher. On Wednesday 14 September 2022, the pub will be hosting a talk and Q&A session with Hugh – who is the event director of the TCS London Marathon. The London Marathon was originally co-founded by running legend Chris Brasher, Hugh’s father.

Hugh will be taking questions on a whole range of subjects from running the world’s most iconic race to growing up in a famous sporting fraternity (his mother, Shirley, was winner of the French Tennis Open).

Tickets cost just £10, including a light snack, and the evening starts at 18.00 with drinks in the garden. They can be purchased via The Turk’s Head website. All profits are going to the MDS Patient Support Group at King’s College Hospital. Myelodysplastic Syndrome is a rare blood cancer and Caitlin Limmer, who is hosting the evening, is the charity’s patron.

Ollie Coulombeau, General Manager at The Turk’s Head, said: “We are so proud to be involved with running in the local area, having worked with The Bearcat Running Club for 10 years. The Turk’s Head 10k, which takes place every summer, has grown in size and stature over the years and The Turk’s Head really is seen as the runners’ pub in South West London.

“Playing host to Hugh Brasher just two weeks prior to this year’s TCS London Marathon is amazing. It’s very exciting and I can’t thank Caitlin Limmer, founder of The Bearcat Running Club and West London Running Mayor, enough for allowing us to host this event. It will be a great night for runners and non-runners alike and will raise funds for a really important cause.”
