Ciret is proud to announce that our colleague Ed, who is in charge of accounts payable in the Ciret office, is going to take part at this year’s Great South Run in Portsmouth. Ed will take on the annual 10-mile road race, which takes place on Sunday October 20th, alongside many others.
The Great South Run was launched in 1990 and is part of the Great Run series created by former British athlete Brendan Foster. The event, which is sponsored by Simplyhealth, has become one of the largest and most popular races in Europe and attracts an array of professional and hobby runners from around the world.
This great event is not just a challenge to push physical and mental limits, and reach set goals, it is for many a mission to raise funds for a good course. Ed has decided to support the great work of The Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association as one of his closest friends has got a child with Down Syndrome. The Association is committed to improve the lives of children and their families in Portsmouth and South Hampshire. They provide information for parents, support them with an extensive range of educational services from birth and run social activities and events throughout the year.
Ed has set himself the goal to raise a minimum of £150 - which we’re sure he’ll exceed - and finish the run faster than he did two years ago, which took him 1hr 50mins. Within the last 3 months Ed has increased his regular running routine and now does a challenging circuit training twice a week and runs one or two times per week. Ed is looking forward to his physical challenge and is grateful for any donations made to his chosen charity fundraiser page.
The whole team at Ciret wishes Ed a strong run and good luck with achieving his goals. We’ll be there to cheer you on!
