The morning of Sunday 23rd June and the Ocean Healthcare team are up bright and early for Torbay Half Marathon and fun run. The weather was perfect for running being not too hot or cold and a slight breeze.
We had 9 colleagues and associates running as part of the Team Ocean Healthcare. Colleagues from Exeter and Torbay were in force to cheer them on every step of the way. Our fastest runner completed the 13 miles in 1 hour 41 minutes our final runner crossed the line in 2 hours 56 minutes. What an amazing team effort with many of our colleagues smashing personal bests.
In addition our runners raised over £1,200 for Rowcroft Hospice Torbay and WESC Foundation Exeter.
You couldn’t miss the fact that this was sponsored by Ocean Healthcare with all those helping wearing branded turquoise t-shirts and looking somewhat like an army so our presence was not only heard but identifiable as Ocean too! Many of our team runners ran with their Ocean Healthcare T-shirts and a few were complimented on them.
Overall it was a great event and which we enjoyed sponsoring in 2019
