Bath Half here we come…
We are proud to announce that a team of staff will be running the Bath Half Marathon next March, 2016. Setting the example by signing themselves up first, Directors Ben Tupman and Sophie Scott have managed to encourage 6 other members of staff to join them – Jon, Emma, Doni, Saskia, Piotr & Alan.
The Bath Half has long been one of the most prestigious and enticing events of the running calendar, and our team will be joining around 13,000 other runners to hit the roads of this beautiful city.
They will be running in aid of well-known charity Dorothy House, a cause dear to the hearts of many members of staff. Dorothy House Hospice Care supports those affected by cancer and provides free specialist nursing care at home to hundreds of families across Wiltshire and Somerset.
Managing Director, Ben Tupman, who prefers to keep fit cycling in the countryside rather than striding the city streets, commented:
This will be a challenge for all of us but a fantastic team-building experience and for a very worthwhile cause. Dorothy House is somewhere that provides amazing care and support in a wonderful environment. The support they offer to patients and their families cannot be underestimated. To be able to support their incredible work is the very least we can do. Being involved in our community remains at the front of our company ethos. We know the training will be tough, as will the event but we’re all really excited about the challenge ahead.”
The training ‘regime’ will kick off this autumn with each runner following a plan designed to escalate the mileage they run each week. If all goes to plan they should be fighting fit by 2016 and ready for their challenge!
