Cooper Parry Corporate Challenge 2009

A team from AdamsonJones recently took part in the Cooper Parry Corporate Challenge, a half-marathon (13.1 mile) relay.

In a relay format, teams of five followed the exact same course as the Experian Robin Hood Half Marathon with each team member running around 2.5 miles before handing over the 'baton'.

The AdamsonJones team, consisting of

  • Simon Cooper
  • Tim Fray
  • Dave Gwilliam
  • Steve Jones
  • Claire Mountain

 
completed the course in 1 hour, 41 minutes, and finished eighth, an improvement of one place and around 30 seconds on the previous year. More importantly, the team raised sponsorship monies for the four event charities, the Alzheimer’s Society, CLIC Sargent (caring for children with cancer), The Fire Fighters' Benevolent Fund and Headway (a head injury charity).
