You may or may not know this, but Clink’s reservations department is in the little Channel Island, Jersey. Jersey is a beautiful little Island surrounded by gorgeous beaches and is famous for the Jersey Royal Potato and the Jersey Cow. Once a year, Jersey has it’s premier runing race the Jersey Standard Chartered Marathon (named after the sponsors Standard Chartered Bank) which is a tough run through the Islands winding country roads and valley’s. It heads through the West side of the Island through St. Helier, up through St. Brelade, St. Peter and St. Ouen, along St. Mary and St. John and back down through St. Lawrence.
This year, our Marketing Manager Dave, decided to set him self the challenge of completing the Jersey Marathon for the first time. He grabbed his running shoes and back pack (very Clink) and set off to do his first ever marathon!
He managed to complete the run in 4 hours 10 minutes and even managed to raise £1,120 for charity, which he donated to Cancer Research UK. Keep up the good work Dave!
