Peter Wells, the General Manager, is participating in the London Marathon on 22nd April 2012 joining some of the world's elite runners, fun runners, charity runners combined with an enthusiastic crowd.
Using the Castle Inn Hotels newly refurbished leisure facilities, guests can start their marathon anytime during the Sunday morning to post a time on the treadmills. Comparisons of marathon times will be made later during the day and any guests beating Peter Wells will get their weekend accommodation break for free.
Peter Wells commented “I wanted an additional challenge to running the London Marathon and thought this would provide incentive to keep going and post a reasonable time. As we are a family run hotel, this is an ideal way everyone can help with my training and keep me focused on the target. The daunting task is made easier by a combination of spectacular scenery, challenging routes and snow capped mountain peaks providing a variety of training around the hotel.”
