Marathon 2019 stories: Kevin Downey does his 30th Marathon for Harvey

Bermondsey’s Kevin Downey was running his 30th and final marathon, writes Daniel Sexton...

This year he ran for young Millwall fan, Harvey Brown, whose family he had met at the Den, and the MPS Society.

In total, he has raised £4,600 and completed it in 5 hours and 35 minutes.

“It’s got harder and I’m not getting any younger!” he said.

Kevin celebrates with his medal but admits “it’s gotten harder”

Harvey and family were at the sidelines cheering him on. “I saw them outside Bermondsey tube when I was running past and they shouted to me. I saw them later and I went over to give him a kiss and cuddle – it was pretty emotional really,” he told the News.
