Dan Jastrzebski, Partner, Andy Doyle, IT Manager and Neil Gayton, Manager, all took part in the London Marathon this year, with all three finishing within five hours and raising thousands for charity.

Andy, who ran for East Anglian Children’s Hospices, completed the course in three hours, 51 minutes, putting him into the top 1000 of males aged 50-54.

He said: “I’m very happy with my time as it was what I was looking for. The atmosphere was great, the crowds created a wall of noise all the way round, but the last few miles were unbelievable.”

Despite battling a knee injury Dan managed to cross the line in four hours, 52 minutes.

He said: “My knee was painful throughout, but by the end everything below the waist hurt! I had a few issues with my hamstrings on the day, but I managed to get through to the finish, which was great.

“I’ve currently raised £3,395 for St John Ambulance with more sponsorship still coming in.”

Ultramarathon runner Neil Gayton also didn’t waste an opportunity to run another marathon, taking part virtually with his brother Wayne, finishing in four hours, 23 minutes.

He said: “All of our kids were there with a makeshift finish line. I drove to my brother’s in Gayton for a 6am start, so we could make the one-way trip to west Lynn, via some scenic woodlands and riverbanks, so I could get to coach my son’s football match that kicked off at 10.30am!”

Stephenson Smart, which has six offices in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, has a matched donation scheme that will add to Dan and Andy’s charity totals.
