Swapping Safety Boots for Running Shoes

Two of Hawkins’ investigators swapped their safety boots for running shoes on Sunday when they took part in the Wings for Life World Run, “running for those who can’t”.  

The event took place in over 40 locations throughout the world, all setting off at the same time on Sunday 8 May 2016. The UK run took place in Cambridge, which was very convenient for our Chairman, Andrew Muston, who is based at our Head Office on the Cambridge Science Park. Peter Reupke travelled from London to take part in the event. The runners set off at noon on what was the hottest day of the year so far and attempted to cover the 88km route before a chaser car, which set off 30 minutes later, caught up with them. The heat played a big part in the day and many runners did not reach their intended goal, but Andrew achieved an impressive 11.22km and Peter Reupke pipped him with 15.25km. The furthest female runner in the UK reached a brilliant 55.08km and the furthest male a staggering 63.7km before David Coulthard, who was driving the catcher car, caught up with them.

Wings for Life has become an annual event, with more locations coming on board each year and they have managed to raise more than €7m for spinal cord research, whose aim is to find a cure for the injured spinal cord.
