A big congratulations to the Alex Picot Coast Busters relay team completed the Greenlight Round the Rock Ultra Marathon on Saturday 6th August.
The team, consisting of Don Connolly, Cameron Purcell, Emily Mclaughlin, Hayley O'Brien and Tom De La Cour, completed the 48 mile island run in under 10 hours, placing them 6 out of 8 relay teams.
We'd also like to pay a special mention to Spencer Wooley who was brave enough to tackle the challenge solo, completing the marathon in a respectable 10:22:14. Each leg of the relay was made up of between 8 and 11 miles depending on the section and everyone gave it their all and pushed on through despite the 25 degree heat!
The marathon was held in aid of Autism Jersey and Headway which raised total of £565 from the relay teams and individuals. The action packed day ended with a BBQ at Director, Derek Rhodes' house where the team soaked up the last of the evening sunshine over good food and a well deserved glass of wine! Apart from Emily taking a wrong turn and Hayley turning up to the BBQ with a slightly glowing pink face, the day was a success for the Alex Picot Coast Busters.
