Mark Llewellyn, managing director of Revive!, the UK’s largest accredited network of mobile smart repairers competed in the London Marathon this year for the third time, raising over £2500 for the charity Children with Cancer UK.
A former professional rugby player, Mark ran his first marathon in 2009 again in 2013 and a number of half marathons including the Great North run four times. Each time he has run in aid of the children’s cancer charity and has raised in excess of £25,000.
"I like to challenge myself in both business and sport, and running can fit round any schedule. I can set my own goals and find that I do some of my best thinking when I’m pounding the streets.
I have to say I am hugely inspired by the people of London whose support is incredible and the whole organisation around the London Marathon is quite amazing. Some of the stories during and around the marathon are fantastic and I take my hat off to all the other runners.
It was a great day but I’m glad it’s over. I managed a little over five hours and am happy, sore, tired and emotional! I have to say that running a marathon is by far the hardest physical thing I have ever done - and that's my third and last. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who sponsored me."

Having worked with the Revive! team for a little time now, it is great to know that there is always someone at the end of the phone to help with technical support or just general advice of how to continue developing my business.
The fact that head office does the accounts and administration for me is really helpful. Also Revive! has a national website where I get a lot of my leads from.Dan Normanton
