Each year we ask our incredible Team Tommy's LLHM runners if they'd like to share their reason for running and what Tommy's means to them.

This year, we've created this space for you to read the stories and experiences of LLHM 2023 Team Tommy's members. This space is yours, and if you'd be happy to share your story with us (even just a couple of lines), please do let us know. We'd love to be able to share as many of your reasons for running as we can.

Ranj and Jiress

Ranj and Jiress experienced 2 miscarriages before their 3rd pregnancy with their baby boy Rhian Maahi Bhudia. Although everything had been progressing well with their 3rd pregnancy, sadly Rhian was born sleeping at 27 weeks. Ranj and Jiress are running the LLHM in memory of Rhian, and together have already raised over £3000 to support the work that Tommy’s does.

Natalie and Sarah

Natalie and Sarah have been through 5 rounds of IVF in which time they’ve had 2 failed attempts, 1 miscarriage, a beautiful baby boy, 1 sunset baby and a beautiful baby girl. They’re both running the LLHM 2023 in memory of their sunset baby, and to help raise awareness for Tommy’s.


Karen and her husband have had 4 pregnancies, all of them have sadly ended in miscarriage. Karen is taking part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon 2023 for Tommy’s, as she has found some comfort in reading the stories of others who, like her, have been trying to make sense of what has happened to them.


After experiencing 2 miscarriages, Rubie and Ben sought the support of 3 Tommy’s clinics. After months of research and investigation, as well as the support of Tommy’s professors and midwives, Rubie and Ben welcomed their double rainbow baby.

Claire and David

Claire will be running the London Landmarks Half Marathon for Tommy’s on Sunday 2 April 2023, the day that she and her husband, David, should have welcomed their baby into the world. Claire and David have had more than 10 losses – but with the help of Tommy’s research trials, Claire and David are hoping for their rainbow baby. This is Claire’s reason for running.


Zoe and Dan welcomed their first baby, Elsie, into the world in 2019 following a healthy pregnancy. Nothing could prepare them for the heartbreak of baby loss during the pandemic, and the rollercoaster of emotion that followed during their next pregnancy. Thankfully, Zoe and Dan’s rainbow baby, Ezra, was born in 2021. Now, Zoe is running the LLHM 2023 to raise money and awareness for Tommy’s.
