Last weekend Barry Mair from the Qube Professional Services team successfully completed the International Canoe Race from Devizes in Wiltshire to Westminster Bridge in London.
It is a 125 mile long course from Devizes down the Kennett & Avon canal onto the Thames at Reading and then down into London finishing at Westminster steps. The team used an open Canadian Canoe for the event which added to the challenge.
Barry paddled with a partner in the 4-day endeavour race taking part in the open boat, veteran mixed category. Barry completed the race from the perspective of a personal challenge and also to help raise money for the Help for Heroes charity. Contributions can still be made here. A number of images from the event and training sessions are included.
The company supported Barry in the challenge directly and fully support and applaud his efforts. Please look out for more news on our staff undertaking challenges throughout the rest of the year – ranging from running the London Marathon and a trek along the Great Wall of China.
