    Encon relay team racks up the miles for charity

    13th October 2014

    6 employees of the Encon Group’s Head Office in Wetherby have completed the 2014 NGN Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay, raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care in the process.

    The 26.2 miles was divided up into legs between 3 and 6 miles long, with each person handing the baton over to the next at designated changeover points. The team, a mix of first timers and keen amateurs, completed the course in 3 hours 57 minutes, with many of team recording PB’s for the sections.

    The group have also been raising money for the charity Marie Curie Cancer Care, and so far have seen almost £800 donated.

    Nick Lankester, Commercial Development Manager and team organiser, said; “A group of us had recently started running together, so we wanted to find a way of setting ourselves a challenge to work towards and also a way of raising some money for Marie Curie in the process. The event was a fantastic team effort, everyone put their all in and the whole team was buzzing afterwards.”

    Phil Buckle, Commercial Analyst and local Marie Curie fund raiser, added; “We’d like to thank everyone who has sponsored us so far - the money we’ve raised will provide 40 hours of Marie Curie nursing care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes here in West Yorkshire, which makes it all worthwhile.”
