Our Director, Alex Tarry runs the New York Marathon!

What an incredible weekend it has been for our Director Alex Tarry.

In April Alex was part of the Children in Need team, running the London Marathon lead by Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans and Vassos Alexander. This also included running the TCS New York City Marathon this weekend.

The build up and training to both events has been massive and included help, advice and training from Steve Cram CBE and Paula Radcliffe MBE.

The busy weekend started on the Friday where all the BBC Children in Need team attended the Chris Evans Breakfast Show, followed by a fun filled flight across the pond to New York in readiness for the Marathon on Sunday.

Although the weather was not perfect, its didn’t dampen Alex or the crowds spirits.

Running a Marathon is a massive challenge in it’s own right, but to run two Marathon’s in seven months is an amazing achievement, which all started by participating in local events like the Aldeburgh Triathlon and Mini Marathon.

On behalf of everyone at Best Estates and Best of Suffolk, many congratulations to Alex Tarry. You are a complete Hero!

Enjoy New York, and make sure you have a beer on us…..you deserve it.
