GCC employee Mark Wedlake completes the London Marathon 2023!

He did it!

On the 23rd April, GCC employee Mark Wedlake, took on the challenge of running the London Marathon 2023 and completed it in an incredible time of 4 hours and 41 minutes! To say we’re proud of Mark’s accomplishment is an understatement.

London Marathon 2023

Mark ran the London Marathon in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. A truly fantastic cause, who have supported people dear to GCC employees.

Mark recalls the day….

“The London Marathon is a race I have wanted to do for a number of years now, and I was incredibly proud to run for Macmillan; a charity that supported my sister when she was ill and also continued to support me after she passed away last year.

Despite it raining at the start, and during a fair bit of the run, this is a day I will never forget!

The crowds are incredible throughout, and give you a lift when you need it especially towards the end – running down Birdcage Walk before Buckingham Palace, the crowds were 3 or 4 deep in places and made the final minutes feel better. A nice massage followed and a much needed rest.”

From all at GCC well done Mark – the dedication & hard work all paid off. A great personal achievement for you, whilst supporting a deserving cause.

We are all very proud of you!
