Jim rides the trail to raise money for Malawi

Last month, our Senior Operations Manager, Jim, took part in a thrilling mountain bike challenge in Wales. Not only did he come third in his event but raised the fantastic sum of £550 for Temwa - a charity that supports sustainable development projects in northern Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world and close to Jim’s heart since his first visit there over 10 years ago

Ultra achievement

Ultra achievement

Many congratulations to our Operations Manager, Liz Noakes (pictured, right), who successfully completed the very challenging ‘100 Mile Run’ this week - a multi day ultra marathon event along the Cotswold Way. Over the course of four days Liz covered the entire Cotswold Way from Chipping Camden to Bath, running from 16 to 33 miles each day.

Along with a friend, and around 200 other runners, Liz spent up to 7 hours a day on the trail stopping at designated campsites in the evenings where tents, meals and reviving ice baths were provided. Luggage was transferred by the organisers so the runners only had to carry a small back pack with a few essential snacks and kit. Flapjacks, nuts, fruit and muffins helped keep her going as well as the occasional stop for a caffeine top-up.

Liz really enjoyed running the undulating, wooded trails and seeing the superb views from the Cotswold escarpment. Although, not surprisingly, it was the sense of achievement that came with crossing the finishing line in Bath, that was her favourite moment. 

But she isn’t resting on her laurels. Liz's next big challenge is the Lakeland Trails Ultra in July – a 110km race in 24 hours around the Lake District. Just the thought of it leaves the rest of us feeling exhausted. We wish her the very best of luck.
