WE DID IT!
On the hottest day of the year so far (30 degrees) our team of runners (Gavin, Sherridan, James and Chris) laced up their trainers to tackle the 13.1 miles of the Shrewsbury Half Marathon.
A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, especially our corporate sponsors:
- Rubery Owen
- Go Carz
- MJH Groundwork
- The Business Company
- Events International
- Sea Dragon
Also special thanks to all of the fantastic supporters on route, who came to cheer people on, with hosepipes, water and jelly babies :)
We all managed to make it round, which wasn’t easy thanks to the heat, our times were:
Gavin’s time of 2:15:15 was perfect considering we were doing the half marathon as part of our #ClearGiveBack events to celebrate our 15 years in business.
We also teamed up with our friends at The Red Barn in Coleham to add an extra water stop on the route. The ‘hydration station’ run by our Account Managers Leigh and Zoe gave over 300 runners an extra boost with a nice bottle of cold water.
So far we’ve raised over £1,000 for Shropshire Down’s Syndrome Support Group (SDSSG) – an amazing local charity who support children with Down’s Syndome and their families. There’s still time to donate and support this amazing cause.

The Half Marathon was one of the 15 #ClearGiveBack events that we’re doing over the next year to give back to the local community to celebrate our 15th birthday. So far we’ve run a free marketing workshop for charities, helped out commuters by paying for their journey over the Kingsland Bridge, and gone for a run in the sun.
