place : architecture’s Sophie Austin was in action this weekend, competing in the Ikano Robin Hood Half Marathon to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
With an official time of 2hr, 9mins and 26 seconds, Sophie just made it under her own target of 2hrs10 and has already raised close to £250 so far. Although Sophie has twice completed the Lincoln 10k, the half marathon is a first. On a glorious day in Nottingham, Sophie joined a field of nearly 13,000 which included runners of all ages and abilities and even a Scooby Doo and an Elvis impersonator. Sophie, a senior designer said “it was a good day for it and the atmosphere was amazing. I seem to be fairing well today and although I’m not in a rush to tie up my laces again soon, I’ll never say never and next time, it could be the full marathon!” Well done to Sophie from everyone on the Place Architecture team.
