Hilly Half Marathon imageOn Sunday 6th October we entered a team in the Huddersfield Hilly Half Marathon Corporate Relay to support one of our nominated charities Forget Me Not Children's Hospice.

Our team was made up of a selection of staff from our design, development and sales team and also Gary King from Tendo who is a good friend of Ascensor and our sales coach.

The 6 person relay team each ran a lap of 2.5 miles, there were some great lap times from the team with a few of our Ascensor Tough Mudders powering round.

As well as the corporate relay, runners also had the opportunity to take part in the individual half marathon event. It was great to see an excellent turnout at the event with lots of marathon runners, corporate relay teams and supporters.

Also attending the event was Double Paralympic Gold Medallist and double world champion, Hannah Cockroft who is an Ambassador for Forget Me Not Children's Hospice. Local TV presenter Harry Gration from Look North was the first person to register for this years half marathon and he sucessfully completed the 13.1 miles with a time of 2 hours 41 minutes.

We are very pleased to be the web partner for Forget Me Not Children's Hospice and we always like to support them at their events. In September Ascensor completed the Tough Mudder challenge and raised over £1400 for Forget Me Not, you can read more about our story and the challenge here.
