Going the Distance

Atlas Retail Consultants founder George Brown and his wife complete the New York Marathon and raise over £3,500 for the charity Breast Cancer Campaign.

On Sunday the 4th of November on a crisp autumnal day, George and Elaine Brown completed the New York Marathon.

The photos below give some idea of the scale of the event, but can’t convey the excitement and enthusiasm New Yorkers have for their marathon. As you pass through each of the neighbourhoods, you’re welcomed to their borough and cheered on your way. Children high five you and adults call out your name. 26.2 miles is a very long way, but it feels far shorter when so many people are willing you to succeed.

To our sponsors and friends who have supported us and the charity, we would like to say a very big thank you in helping us to achieve our goals.
