Employees from commercial property agency Innes England are gearing up to take on the Robin Hood half marathon in support of the Alzheimer’s Society.
The company has offices in Derby, Leicester and Nottingham and has already raised over £3,000 for the charity, its charity of the year, as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations.
The team of eight will see runners from the Leicester and Nottingham offices taking part in the race, with four members running the mini marathon and the other four running the half marathon.
Alicia Rudzka, marketing manager at Innes England, is participating in the half marathon. She said: “It is for such a good cause and will help add to our fundraising total. Training for the challenge has pulled the team together and we are in good shape to take on the race.
“I have really tried to step up my training in the run up to the race. I have been to a specialist running workshop to improve my technique and getting lots of support from a running coach. So long as I finish before dark I will be happy!”
The dedicated staff joining her for the run will be Scott Osborne and Paul Rogers, along with associate directors and John Hartshorne, surveyor, with Jenny Clarke, associate director, Enfys Thomas, surveyor, Kate Richardson, graduate surveyor, and Nicola Watson, PA asset assessment running the mini marathon.
Managing Director at Innes England, Tim Garratt, said that taking part in the corporate challenge of the Ikano Robin Hood Marathon will mark the second major challenge that they have undertaken as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations, which will raise vital funds for the fantastic charity.
Garratt continued: “Dementia is something that will touch so many of our lives so we are excited to add to our already substantial total with such an iconic Nottingham race.”
