Property Negotiator Miles Hamer and Wright Property Director Jon Gay celebrated this past weekend, having completed the inaugural Barnstaple Marathon. Running a leg-trembling 26.2 miles each, the pair crossed the finishing line at 5 hours and 4 hours 18 minutes respectively. Raising over £620 in sponsors for the North Devon Hospice in memory of his late mother, Miles commented, "It was a real struggle from the mid-point onwards, and I managed to pull both hamstrings at mile 21, but the crowd and atmosphere made it worth every agonising limp back to the end".
Man machine Jon managed the course with no training whatsoever, but having cycled from Land's End to John O'Goats just the previous week, was in fine physical form to the accept the challenge, taking place of injured Accounts Manager Daniel. Praising the organisation, Jon earmarked in particular the support from his Wright Property colleagues. "We had great champions in the form of Director Claire and the team, who raced around the course to cheer us on, supplying us with encouragement and energy boosts wherever they could!"
