Our founder John raised £3,000 at the weekend for our foundation after running the Reading Half Marathon. He completed the race in 1:41:08 on Sunday 22nd March.
After the race he said:
“Running the marathon this year was a wonderful experience. It was so well organised and is a great event for Reading. The community spirit was overwhelming, people of all ages came out to support us, offering water, jelly babies, bananas and even beer! The cheerleaders and singers along the route were fantastic entertainment and what I thought was going to be a long run ended up feeling much shorter than anticipated.”
“We plan to have lots of representatives next year who will take part and raise money for the foundation. I was the first to jump on our Skydive last year and I would not ever expect our fundraisers to participate in an event that I would not do myself! Being part of the marathon is a fantastic occasion to build our community spirit in a wonderful town which I am so passionate about. I can’t wait until next year!”
