Neil runs the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon

As you know we specialise in motion control, so what better way to represent motion than by recognising one of our team for running the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon.

Neil Cameron, our Southern Sales Engineer, took part in this year’s London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April.

 Neil is a Coach Co-ordinator with the Totton Running Club based in Southampton and works closely with other coaches agreeing training schedules and strategies. He has been a member of this club for several years and has run various races during his time with them. 

This was his first time running the London Marathon, with his finish time coming in at 4 hours and 15 minutes. Neil says:

“This was a tough marathon but I’m delighted with my finishing time. The atmosphere was incredible and running across the finishing line with an injured clubmate was the icing on the cake for me.

I can’t claim that my motion control was very good after though!”
