Northern Media sales director, Jonathan Scott and marketing executive, Anthony Bowyer, have completed the Catterick Para 10 Mile Run for charity following months of training.
Jonathan, who completed the course in 95 minutes, managed to raise £420 for Wakefield-based children’s charity, Levi’s Star. Meanwhile, Anthony completed the run in just 86 minutes, raising a total of £310 for Wakefield Hospice – although Jonathan is claiming a one minute handicap for each of his fifteen senior years to claim a virtual victory over Anthony!
“The Catterick Para 10 Mile run was extremely testing, but I am so happy that I managed to complete it, especially in the time that I did it in! I would just like to say a massive thankyou on Anthony and my behalf to everyone that sponsored us, including some of our clients.”
Despite the pain, Jonathan and Anthony are considering taking on the PARAS at their own game next year by running the event with the customary 35lbs on their back!
“The Catterick 10 Mile challenged me both physically and mentally and took me well out of my comfort zone of 400m running. However, the great weather and superb support around the course really helped me get through the challenging course and knowing that I was doing it for such a good cause meant that there was no way I was going to give up.
“I am immensely proud of myself for completing it, and I would like to say a massive thank you to all those who sponsored Jonathan and I. I have never finished a race and felt so exhausted but it was certainly worth the pain.”
