A team from digital marketing agency Hallam raced in the Ikano Robin Hood Half Marathon in Nottingham, which took place in the city centre on the 28th September 2014.
The team, which includes four digital marketing consultants from Hallam, will complete a 13.1 mile route around Nottingham plus a shorter ‘mini marathon’ route of 1.5 miles.
The Robin Hood Half Marathon challenge is part of the annual Robin Hood Marathon and teams from businesses around Nottingham participatied as part of the Nottingham Post Corporate Challenge.
Speaking of the event, Hallam’s Digital Project Manager Jake Elliott said: “It was a challenging run but one we knew we could conquer. It was a hot day, which didn’t make for an easy run, but a great atmosphere and we were thrilled to be able to race against other Nottingham business teams.”
Laura Hampton, Digital Marketing Manager at Hallam, commented: “Our day job is to help businesses to succeed but this is one occasion where we wanted to outperform them all! It was a great team event and also a huge personal challenge too. I’m exhausted and achy, but very proud to have completed my first ever half marathon.”
The four raced to complete their events in the fastest possible time, with the top two times from the half marathon and the times from the mini marathon runners counting toward an overall team total, which was then pitted against the other teams.
Susan Hallam, Managing Director at Hallam, said: “When the team approached me with the idea of running the Robin Hood Half Marathon, I wasn’t sure how serious they were! But they’ve really thrown themselves into the training and have all achieved fantastic personal goals as well as showing the determination of the Hallam team overall.”
Rainu Bhele, Digital Marketing Executive at Hallam, has not run much before and said: “I’m new to running and this event gave me the motivation to start. I enjoyed the day and I’m even thinking about trying other races now too.”
The team all took home medals from the event, which will take pride of place in their homes.
