Team story

[p]Hi Everyone,[/p][p]Rodger and I will be running the London Marathon on the 28th April to raise money for Cascaid and Great Ormond Street Hospital. [/p][p]Before this, I will also be running the Vienna, Brighton and Ipswich (yes it’s a real place and my home town) marathons on the 7th, 14th and 21st April. [/p][p]London will be Rodger’s 18th marathon and if I make it to the start line over in Blackheath, it will be my 10th. We’d be so grateful if you would sponsor us and raise money for this incredible charity. We will also be running (pun intended) a competition – whoever gets closest to guessing our combined finishing time will win a magnum of champagne (but you must sponsor us though!).[/p][p]For a chance of winning the champagne please put your guesses for our combined time in the comments section on our sponsorship page…[/p][p]To help you guess our combined time, please read a recent interview with us and Fred Dewhurst, Investec’s Sales Manager for Scotland…..[/p][p][i]Fred:[/i] [i]Charles, you’ve got more of a “dad bod” than a “marathon bod” don’t you think? Have you actually run a marathon and what was your finishing time?[/i] [/p][p][i]Charles: Cheers Fred, you’re so kind! Somehow I’ve managed to get round 6 marathons and my fastest time was up in Manchester (UNITED!!) where I ran it in 3 hours 43 minutes.[/i][/p][p][i]Fred: Rodger, this will be your 18 marathon. At your age, are you not annoyed you’ve not run at least 20? What’s been your fastest time?[/i][/p][p][i]Rodger: Fred, at your age, are you not annoyed you haven’t run a marathon?! My fastest time was running the Brussel’s marathon, where I finished it in 3 hours 19 minutes[/i][/p][p][i]Fred: Rodger, that’s pretty impressive! What time are you hoping to run London in this year?[/i][/p][p][i]Rodger: I’m really not putting a time on it Freddie, just so long as I beat Charles….!![/i][/p][p] [i]Fred: Charles, your time really isn’t that impressive compared to Rodger’s. What time are you hoping to run London in this year?[/i][/p][p][i]Charles: I really don’t mind Fred, there won’t be much left in the tank come London. But…. Just so long as I beat Rodger…..!![/i][/p][p] Many thanks,[/p][p] Charles & Rodger [/p][p] [/p]
