Cancer Research UK Fundraising

Update for Alex Neil's 2020 fundraising efforts started with the bang of a starting pistol on Sunday, the 1st of March, as David and Matteo toed the line of the Vitality Big Half. Both have been training hard, enduring the inclement weather conditions we've seen across the winter months, and it proved good preparation for a cold race day.

The Big Half was their first-ever organised running event, and they didn't choose a small event to run their first half marathon either. David and Matteo joined over 16,000 other runners, many supporting charities. They also shared the route with elite athletes Kenenisa Bekele, Lily Partridge, and others.

Starting near Tower Bridge, the route heads toward Canary Wharf before returning through Limehouse and Wapping E1W. Runners head south of the Thames across Tower Bridge into the desirable Shad Thames.

Then through Bermondsey in SE1 before the route loops the peninsula of Rotherhithe, continuing through Deptford to the finish line in Greenwich. Sounds easy, doesn't it?

Navigation was simple, as David and Matteo knew the area exceptionally well. The route passes the front doors of our offices in Canary Wharf & Docklands and Rotherhithe & Bermondsey. Their local knowledge and a well-marked route ensured they didn't get lost!

Both were quite pessimistic about their potential finishing time and found themselves in the green wave at the back of the pack at the start. Turning a negative into a positive, David and Matteo made their way through the field, and the feeling of overtaking fuelled their progress and ambition.

The prime goal was raising funds for Cancer Research UK, but their second goal was to cross the finish line in less than two hours. Cheered by thousands of supporters along the 13.1-mile route, they beat their target. Matteo crossed the line in 1hr 46 minutes, followed by David in an equally impressive 1hr 49 minutes.

Now oozing with confidence, they are looking forward to their next big event, The Hackney Half, on the 17th of May. We look forward to sharing their results.
