McCreas Adviser takes on London Marathon

We are delighted to confirm (because we don’t have to do it) that one of our advisers, Chartered Financial Planner, Jonathan Campbell has a coveted place in this years’ famous London Marathon courtesy of one of our nominated charities for 2016, Venture Trust.

Jonathan who spends his time during working hours with McCreas as a specialist adviser for pensions and investments has been in training since early January when he found out about his place.

He currently runs three times a week with a long run at the weekend and everyone in the McCreas office has had to endure the tales of woe and details on all the aches and pains along the way.  It’s fair to say that with his longest run so far of 20 miles, there aren’t many of us that could keep up however so credit where it’s due!

There are now only a few weeks to go until the marathon and Jonathan this week will start reducing the distances to prepare for the event but with half an eye on the Iron Man Triathlon he has entered in July, there has also been a need to fit in cycling and swimming which has meant lots of early mornings and late nights in wintry conditions.

We will all be supporting Jonathan and the Venture Trust charity as he takes on this challenge and you can too by donating here with all the money raised going to Venture Trust.  To find out more about the charity click here.
