Simon Prescott – Marathon Man
Posted: June 2, 2010
Nice ‘n’ Naughty Director Simon Prescott took part in the Virgin London Marathon on 25th April, with the aim of raising at least £1,500 for Vitalise, a charity which provides respite breaks and other essential services for the disabled, the visually impaired and carers. Simon has already raised thousands of pounds for charity in recent years through events like the Great North Run and the Cyprus Four Day Challenge but this was his first marathon.
He completed the punishing 26.2 mile course in five hours, five minutes and 37 seconds – a commendable effort which was only 180 minutes behind the winner. He said afterwards: “It was an amazing, very challenging and, towards the end, painful experience but one for lots of reasons I will never forget. I managed to run for 22 miles without walking then stretched and walked for a couple of hundred yards then ran to the end.”
