Captain David Gillies and Deputy Head Green Keeper Richard Burgess complete the Brighton Half Marathon . . . .
David and Richard both completed the Brighton Half Marathon yesterday. Spectacular weather all day, not sure if it was ideal for running though!
Richard recorded a superb time of 1hour 36mins (proper athlete), David who had been in bed for two days prior to the event with a bad case of man flu but got the job done in 2hours 21mins (solid performance).
Both the guys had family and friends supporting along the way – super effort and for such a good cause , Albion in the Community https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/WestHoveGolfClub
The guys have exceeded their target, final number will be confirmed soonest. It’s not too late to make a donation! Reminder to members that The Captain that as a thanks for all the support snacks will be provided over lunchtime on Saturday 9th March whilst watching on Sky Brighton v Crystal Palace.
