We recently were the acting support team for 5 rowers from Henley-on-Thames cycling 300km through Central London in one day, providing media and general support along the journey. We at AllMarkOne are looking to expand the range of sports that we cover and are currently interested in new and different projects that our followers and athletes are taking part in, if you want to discuss your project with us and how we can help please just contact us here. We were recently contacted by Jenny and Elle who are running a marathon along the Thames Path with multiple other rowers for the charity MIND.
Elle Nash and Jenny Bates, rowers from Oxford Brookes and Hartpury University, have used lock down as an opportunity to start up Jellees, a company which sells premium pick and mix sweets nationwide. These products have powered several members of the GB Rowing Team through their Olympic training, including the likes to Will Satch, Karen Bennet, Tom George and Rory Gibbs.
Like many rowers across the country and beyond, Jenny and Elle were meant to be at Henley Royal Regatta this weekend and so thought it would be fitting to run a charity marathon which ends in Henley-on-Thames, to mark the occasion. They are holding a competition on their Instagram page for a chance to win 2kg of sweets and a pair of Mustash Cycling socks through a raffle at £2 per entry, all off the competition rules are in their post below. 50% of money raised will be donated to MIND, a charity supporting people with mental health problems. To donate directly to the cause without entering the raffle the JustGiving page can be found here.
They will be running from Oxford Brookes Boat House in Cholsey, Wallingford, along the Thames Path to Henley, where an afternoon of picnics and sweets awaits. If you’d like to support them on any part of the run, or join in for a social distanced picnic in the afternoon, a rough route guide can be found here or contact ourselves for more information.
Similar to the recent cycling trip, we at AllMarkOne will be supporting Jenny and Elle along the route as well as creating both photo and video content along the way.
