Insulation manufacturer Saint-Gobain Isover has raised money for charity after a 13-man team took on the 31st Windsor Half Marathon.
Senior product manager Tom Foster led the team to Windsor Great Park in Berkshire in the glorious sunshine and crossed the line in just two hours and seven minutes. Saint-Gobain teammates Ken Armstrong, Padraig Barry, Mike Chaldecott, Linda Dodd, Phil Eveleigh, Bruce Fisher, Clare Gibson, Simon Hare, Jonathan Male, Bilal Mohammed, Pete Moody and Simon Tait also successfully completed the course.
The team has so far raised £1,365 for CRASH, an organisation dedicated to providing cash grants, supplying free building materials and helping construction professionals volunteer their time to improve hostel accommodation for homeless people in the UK.
After the race, Foster said: “My legs are stiff and I’m nursing a few blisters now, but I relished the opportunity to run in the shadow of Windsor Castle. The spectacular scenery and glorious weather helped, but what got me through the most challenging stretches was the knowledge that I was raising money for such a good cause. The work that CRASH does means a great deal to all of us at Isover and I’m really proud that the funds I helped raise will go towards improving living conditions for homeless people.”
