On Sunday 22nd September some of the Ansaback 24/7 call centre staff took part in the Ipswich Half Marathon. This is an extremely popular event but ended up being an extremely eventful race for Ansaback! Six people started the race, William Catchpole (CEO), Christian Pawsey (MD), Galina Solopova (Senior Marketing Exec), Matt Lawrence (Product Development), Zonja Bunn (Accounts Assistant) and Rachel Wicko (Call Centre team Leader). Unfortunately due to injuries and illness only 4 of the runners finished the race. Zonja had a bad fall and ended up in A&E and having 6 stiches in her knee (ouch), Christian had to pull out due a calf injury and Rachel felt unwell and was unable to complete the 13 mile run. William Catchpole finished first out of the team, in 2 hours 10 minutes, closely followed by Galina in 2 hours 15 (a great time for her first half marathon). Matt had a pre-existing ankle injury but still managed to completed the course. So all in all, 6 started, 3 finished, 3 injured! Despite the above, all of team all enjoyed the day and are looking forward to future running events.
