Redline Duo’s Half-Marathon

25/10/15 Martin Crapper Managing Partner
On Sunday 25th October, two of Redline’s Consultants successfully completed the Luton Half-Marathon in aid of the Luton Poppy Appeal.

Bhavesh Patel and Jabe Bean, Permanent Consultants from Redline’s dedicated high-technology Engineering division, entered the 13.1 mile race. Starting in Stockwood Park the race took them via the athletics track and picturesque Stately Home/Hotel Luton Hoo before descending into town and finishing outside the Town Hall.

Bhav, an experienced runner having completed the London Marathon in April, was delighted with his time of 1 hour 42 mins (a quite astonishing average of 8 miles per hour!) a personal best for him. Jabe only recently began running so his time of 2 hours and 4 minutes is an amazing first half-marathon time.

The finishing line in sight, Jabe put on a final spurt but alas there was another loop to complete! Jabe says “I thought I’d finished really quickly and felt really fresh so thought I’d go for the grandstand finish. Gutted doesn’t describe it but I still completed the course in a brilliant time and can’t wait for the next one.”

Martin Crapper, Redline’s Managing Director, commented “We’ve a very active bunch at Redline; regular gym goers, weekly 5-a-side football matches, table tennis in the office, golf and tennis through the summer, but marathons and half-marathons take real dedication and preparation, well done gents.”
