The team from Preston based growth accountants, haleys, ran their socks off last Sunday to take part in the Run Preston event being held in the town centre.
Louise Gorrell and daughter Annabel, along with Alice Singleton, Jennifer Parkinson and Paul Farrington all ran the 5k and completed it within 20 minutes of each other.
Paul Farrington then went on to complete the 10k event directly after, so ran a grand total of 15km!
The run was done in order for the team to raise money for St Catherine's Hospice - a local charity aimed at providing high quality, specialised medical and nursing care for adults with life limiting illnesses.
It was a personal challenge as well as a charity fun run and the atmosphere on the day was brilliant with people cheering and clapping to help encourage the runners.
At the moment, the team have raised a fantastic £125, so thank you to everyone who has sponsored us.
It was a fantastic achievement for all involved to cross the finish line, especially for those who had never done a race such as this before.
