On Sunday 6th May over 550 participants took part in the 2012 Heritage Coast Run / Walk. There are 3 seperate events, the full marathon, the 1/2 marathon and the 6 mile course.
The 3 courses are set in some of the most attractive countryside that Suffolk has to offer and presents a unique challenge to the participants. The event, which is hosted near to our Ipswich based contact centre attracts not only local competitors but also competitive runners and clubs from all over the country.The weather was not particularly kind, being both wet and windy however this did not detract from the event or deter the competitors.
Ansaback 24/7 call centre Managing Director Christian Pawsey and his partner Abi (pictured below) both took part in the event. Christian did the 1/2 marathon which was 13.1 miles with a finishing time of just 1 hour 43 minutes. His partner Abi, who is 6 months pregnant, took part in the 6 mile walk, finishing in approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
Whilst both Christian and Abi and regulars to marathons and other sporting events, it was a 1st race for their unborn child!
