Six runners who raised more than £25,000 by finishing the Virgin London Marathon have been praised by the charity they helped.
The MapAction team included Naomi Morris, Chris Holcroft, John Lyon, Ian Holt and Christopher and Sarah Egerton-Warburton.
Chris Holcroft said: "Doing the 2012 London Marathon was a life-enriching experience that was full of fun, emotion, hardship and achievement. It gave our team of six runners a chance to make a vital contribution to MapAction, a unique charity that uses geographic information to save and improve the lives of those affected in humanitarian crises and natural disasters.
"It demanded a heck of a lot from us, but at the same time MapAction supported us and helped us very well at every stage of the process. I would certainly do it again."
The charity is now keen to hear from people who would run on their behalf in the 2013 Virgin London Marathon.
