Over the weekend, Richmond Motor Group was honoured to sponsor the Great South Run – a fantastic 10 mile route in which 20,000 people took part. The event began on Saturday 20th October with the annual canine run, which sees hundreds of owners and their pooches taking part. There was also a 5K held and a junior race.
On Sunday 21st October the Women’s race and men’s race took place. Eilish McColgan won the women’s race with an impressive time of 54:43. Chris Thompson won the men’s race for the third time in consecutive years, recording a time of 46:56 which was a personal best for him.
Among the thousands of other participants was the 17-year-old sister of murdered soldier Lee Rigby. Courtney took part to help raise funds for the Lee Rigby Foundation, which supports victims of British terror attacks, of which her brother fell victim to when he was murdered in 2013. Some celebrities also took part, including actor Stephen Mangan, Emmerdale star Malcolm Wells and ITV Meridian present Sarah Gomme.
DS Salon Portsmouth supplied four DS 7 CROSSBACK SUVs for the event and throughout the day many spectators would have spotted the Byzantin Gold cars as two vehicles lead the headline races with clocks strapped to their roofs, while two more followed behind to make sure proceedings went smoothly.
We were very proud to be sponsors for such a great event. Here are some highlights from a successful weekend:
