Essex Police Sergeant Nick Williams is tackling his second London Marathon to help raise funds for us.

The 32-year-old, from Braintree, vowed he’d never take on the gruelling 26-mile course again after completing it for the first time last year.

But he’s bravely taken on the challenge AGAIN to help us fight crime across the UK.

Nick said: “I’ve only been running for a year and a half so this is another huge challenge for me.

“After last year I said I’d never do it again but this year I started to wonder whether I could improve on my time and raise even more money for a worthy cause.

“This year I’m running for Crimestoppers because, as a Sergeant with Essex Police, I regularly experience the excellent work that the charity does.

“The money that I will raise will allow them to continue vital community projects, which will help to reduce crime in the county.”


Nick's training regime involves pounding the streets three times a week AND sweating it out in the gym.

What's his motivation for getting to the finish line?

He said: "The crowd will definitely give me a lift when I hit those inevitable low points along the route.

“My motivation for getting to the finish is knowing that I’m raising money for charity and knowing that if I fail to complete the distance I’ll get lots of stick at work!”
