FESPA's Marcus Timson completed the course in less than four hours, a competitive benchmark time for amateur runners
Three members of the sign and graphics production industry were amongst the tens of thousands of runners who lined up for the Virgin London Marathon 2011 on Sunday April 17th.
Marcus Timson, sales and marketing director of FESPA, completed the course in three hours, 55 minutes and 13 seconds. "I had a great but painful day at a superb event with some amazing experiences and have raised nearly £3,000 for the Children's Trust in the process," he says. "I'd like to thank all those in the wide-format industry who sponsored; both the Children's Trust and I are very thankful."
As Sign and Digital UK closed, the show's marketing manager Alan Caddick prepared to run for the Neuro Foundation. "The support along the way was immense and certainly helped me to get to the finish. Raising money for The Neuro Foundation was an absolute pleasure and I just hope that it will go some way to making a difference."
Colin Harding, consultant with Océ and Sun Chemical PR agency Shaw Communications, raised some £2,300 for Kidney Research UK in memory of his father, Rex, who passed away last year. "I managed [the marathon] in 5hrs 50mins despite an acute inflammation of my Achilles heel suffered one week before the event," he says.
