Bar Manager in London Marathon Triumph!

eli : April 27, 2015 3:26 pm : Uncategorized

Chris, our bar manager, has returned from London on a high this week after completing his fourth London Marathon in the brilliant time of 2 hours 51 minutes.

Not only did he raise lots of money for Macmillan Cancer Support but he had the honour of running 14 miles alongside Paula Radcliffe as she ran her last marathon.

‘She was a lovely lady and it was a once in a lifetime experience’ he said. ‘The atmosphere was amazing with the crowds cheering her on.’

You might have seen him on telly on the BBC coverage or the news. He’s even made the papers in the London Evening Standard and The Metro.

He might think himself a celebrity now but I’m sure we’ll soon bring him back to earth with a bump!
