Lane End's Steve Completes Flete Half Marathon
Steve Kader of Lane End’s Maintenance Team completed the Flete Half Marathon in May.
Competing to raise funds for Cancer Research UK, Steve came 39th of the 218 participants, finishing the multi-terrain course in an impressive two hours and four minutes.
Steve said: “Having completed the Fan Dance Race in the Brecon Beacons last year I was keen to set myself another challenge. The Flete half marathon was ideal as it covered lots of tough terrain and took in some amazing coastal scenery.”
The 14.2 mile route - categorised as ‘strenuous’ - started on the Flete Estate in Mothcombe South Devon and included steep coastal paths and beach crossings.
Heni Fourie, Sales and Marketing Manager at Lane End Conference Centre, said; “Well done Steve from all of us on completing the Flete half marathon, it’s an incredible achievement. We look forward to hearing about your next challenge!”
At the final count, Steve has raised more than £500 in sponsorship via friends, family and colleagues at Lane End.
From an army background, Steve has worked at Lane End Conference Centre, Buckinghamshire for over five years.
Steve says one of the best aspects of his roles is being outdoors and maintaining the grounds – and with 26-acres of parkland, including a 9-hole golf course, there’s plenty to enjoy!
