‘Half’ Marathon Man!

Neither driving snow nor sub-zero temperatures could dissuade PBC’s Robert Thornton-Smith from donning his running gear to take part in his first-ever UK half marathon.

Robert, who hails from Johannesburg in South Africa and is the newest member of the PBC Project Management team, braved the elements to complete the Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon in a very creditable 2 hours and 7 minutes.

Whilst more used to the warm and temperate weather of his home country, Robert thoroughly enjoyed the run, which took him from the grounds of Henry VIII’s historic Palace along the River Thames to Kingston.  He is now in training to take part in the Mayfair Power & Tower Race for charity in May 2018, and is hoping that this time the weather will be warm and sunny!
