After weeks of hard work and toil, Sunday 4th March finally came around and it was time for Simon to take part in the Puma Woburn 10k race which he was running in aid of United for UNICEF.
The weather was terrible with a howling wind blowing in his face but at least the rain held out until the end. The undulating course was a real challenge, especially the nasty hill after about 2km. It nearly finished most people off but Simon persevered, gritted his teeth and finished in a time of… 1 hour and 1 minute.
In the end, it was all worth it because after going through the pain barrier (several times) and still suffering aching legs two days later, Simon managed (with the help of everyone here at Engine Creative) to raise over £160 in donations for United for UNICEF.
United for UNICEF is a collaboration of two partners – the biggest football club in the world, Manchester United, and the largest international children’s charity, UNICEF. The aim of the charity is to “Increase awareness of issues affecting children across the globe.”
