Daniel Baylis

Bio: “I have been working with Nordoff Robbins during the recent redevelopment of the London music therapy centre as part of the cost consultancy team managing the building project. Working with the Nordoff Robbins team on the build I wanted to give something back by raising as much money as I possibly can for this fantastic charity! Spending time in the centre and hearing stories of those who have benefitted from the work Nordoff Robbins do I can think of no better reason than to get my running shoes back on and tackle a gruelling 13.2 miles!”

Post-Race Treat: Huge Sunday roast with family!
