“Team GPW” was again fuelled by Optimus Protein on Sunday 16th September 2012 at the “Helena Partnerships Dream Trace Race 2012” at St Helens, Merseyside.
Team GPW included Mark Parish, Jess Hunt, Jack Houghton and our most recent recruit Daryl Allen who all completed the “extremely hilly” course around Sutton Manor in St Helens.
A massive “well done” to Jess Hunt who won third place female at the race. Jess who only last week completed the English Half Marathon ran the 8.5km Dream race in 49 mins 21 secs. Jess commented “This was a great event which catered for all ability, it was tough but very well organised, I’m looking forward to next years event already.“
We also had a couple of staff who ran the Mini Trail Race with their children. “The mini race was great, giving many of the local children their first experience of running a “proper” race. All the children seemed to really enjoy themselves especially when the collected their medal.” comments Gary Ward, Operations Manager.
Optimus Protein is one of the leading sports supplement providers and has partnered with GPW to provide recovery shakes and protein shakes to its staff on completion of their sporting events.
Also we would like to say a big “thank you” to our friends at the Steve Prescott Foundation and Sutton Athletic.
