The Pilgrims Hospices Canterbury Half Marathon attracted its biggest ever entry on Sunday 24th May and raised over £20,000 for the charity.
More than 900 runners took on the 13 mile route through the countryside on what proved to be the hottest day of the year so far. Taking part for the Concorde International Team were two of the Concorde staff, Tim Sheehan and Kyutea Lee and one former student, Mohammed Shidfar. All three runners struggled with the heat and the difficult course, but all managed to finish in record times, all beating their times from previous years.
All three runners were happy with their times, and are keen to run again next year, perhaps in the Folkestone Half Marathon! Concorde International record holder Kyutea Lee said ‘I have been training hard for this race and I am so happy with my personal record time, and it was great to run with Tim and Mohammed again. Hopefully we can get a few extra students to join in next year and help support this great charity.’
