Reason Global’s Office Manager, Tracey Rowland, has run many marathons over the years. In March last year she ran the NYC Half Marathon, and every year she makes a special effort to run the Brighton Half Marathon.
This year’s Half Marathon was held on Sunday 23rd February and marked the 30th Anniversary of the race. To celebrate the special occasion, David Knight, who was the winner of the first-ever Brighton Half Marathon in 1990, sounded the starting klaxon. Brighton’s famous resident, Norman Cook, was also there to send off the runners off on their journey around the city’s sights.
Tracey bravely battled the miserable weather to make it around the course in good time. “This year I was totally undertrained but very keen to run as it was this forms part of my training for my second Iron Man in July (well it’s an Iron Man over a week!). The conditions were challenging, but the organisers and the volunteers were amazing and supportive – giving it their all despite the wind and rain.”
Well done Tracey!
