They couldn’t have picked a worse day for it weather-wise, but the rain didn’t stop these four from completing their sporting events last Sunday. Huge congratulations to all of you and well done!

Nick Pearse – Winchester Half

Our head of account management, Nick Pearse, completed the Winchester Half Marathon in 1hr 34mins which is a fantastic time! He finished 82nd and here he is with his gorgeous little boy Harry.

Dave Colgate and Lee Wilson – Tough Mudder

Another fantastic achievement by Lee (head of services) and Dave (head of SEO) on not only surviving the Tough Mudder which is a feat in itself, but completing it in less than 45 minutes! Here they are at the end – Dave far left and Lee far right. Well done boys!

Ben Jayston – West Wight Triathlon

And finally, well done to Ben (SEO specialist and account manager) who completed his 4th sprint triathlon, finishing 51st out of 130 which is awesome! We don’t have a photo of Ben so we’re taking his word that he actually did it, and didn’t just find this race number and medal on the floor somewhere 🙂

Great effort – well done all of you!
