The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race. The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long. It passes through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall, and in 2016, HTC’s former Managing Director, Bez, took part in it!
Bez ran to raise money for OCD UK, a very small charity that has helped one million children and adults who suffer from this debilitating disorder. Unlike larger charities, OCD-UK only receive one guaranteed place in the London Marathon every four years, so Bez’s sponsor page was the only fundraising it received from such a huge event.
