On Sunday 11 September 2011 Simon Cooper, Claire Mountain, Dave Gwilliam, Nic Ferrar and Steve Jones took part in the annual Cooper Parry Challenge, running the Nottingham Robin Hood Half Marathon as a relay race against teams from other companies in the Nottingham area.
Running a great race, the team finished in 1:38:22. This beat our time from last year by over three and a half minutes, and meant we finished seventh out of the forty-five teams taking part.
The aim of the race was to raise money for the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust (www.dkhlegacytrust.org) and, thanks to our sponsors, the team received the award for raising the highest amount of money for charity.
We are very grateful to all of our sponsors for their generosity, but a special mention must go to Tim Parry and his colleagues at Patentseekers Ltd (www.patentseekers.com) for their exceptionally kind donation.
