On Sunday 11th March Morrisons Solicitors sponsored the Corporate Challenge at the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon in Woking. Our team of 7 runners unfortunately didn’t win the Corporate Challenge this year, so had to hand over the trophy over to the team from Mercer. Congratulations to the three runners from Mercer, who came in with an impressive accumulative time of 4 hours 31 minutes and 50 seconds!
Zak Raza was our team’s fastest runner on the day, completing his first Half Marathon with an impressive time of 1hr.43 min.31 seconds.
On the day itself our team of volunteers gave out banger sticks to the crowds of supporters and spectators who were cheering on the runners. These went down well with both children and adults alike and gave the runners a bit of extra encouragement as they ran toward the finishing line.
As runners finished, our team handed out Morrisons drawstring bags, with a surprise pack of sweets, to congratulate those who had completed the half marathon.
All of our team of runners finished with respectable times and we are very proud of their achievements, for some it was their first ever half marathon, whereas some are seasoned runners who were trying to beat PBs. However, all had a great day and enjoyed the race immensely – despite the aches and pains.
If you would still like to support our team who ran in aid of LinkAble a local Woking charity who provide sports, social and recreational facilities for children and adults with a broad range of learning difficulties, please follow this link to help us raise as much as we can for such an amazing cause.
