Last Sunday saw the nineteenth annual Carvers Marathon, this year with a Dedred addition in the Cousins 20K Cycle Event! Not ones to be shown up, Red Koala and Red Swan hired a tandem and completed the whole 20K in 46 minutes, managing to beat the other tandems whilst they were at it! Who knew swans and koalas were such keen cyclists?
Although their competitive streak shone through, it was all for a good cause as the money raised from the Carvers Marathon and other associated events on the day was donated to Compton Hospice, Wolverhampton Rheumatology Support Group, The Haven and The Mayoral Charity Fund.
Making sure their success was known, Red Koala and Red Swan made it into the Express & Star! To see their photo and many others from the event, take a look here!
