Staff of Wrekin Products, manufacturer of intelligent products for civil engineering, have run the equivalent of 11 marathons to raise over £400 for the British Heart Foundation.
MyMarathon took place across Britain in May. Each person had to run the length of a marathon during the month, choosing to run as far at a time as they wanted and logging their progress towards the 26.2 mile total.
Chris Eccleston, Marketing Manager at Wrekin, was one of the runners and also organised a cake sale to add to Team Wrekin’s fundraising. “I’m delighted to have completed MyMarathon for the British Heart Foundation, a charity that has helped friends and families when they’ve suffered heart problems.”
In total, MyMarathon attracted nearly 22,000 runners across the UK, covering a distance of over half a million miles.
