Upcoming Team-Viva! Challenges
Newfish Greek Runners - Throughout 2014
Team-Viva! has some new recruits for 2014, and this time they are raising the bar! We have been joined by tenacious, gregarious Greek runners John and Panagiotis, who represent their club “Newfish Runners”.
These guys aren’t messing around! They’ve not just signed up for a single event, oh no. They’ve signed up for a whole series of runs which started on Sunday 11 November 2013, including a 62km ultra race!!
Our runners are passionate vegans and are excited to be representing Viva! and flying the flag for animal rights!
Follow their progress as the Newfish Greek Runners clock up the miles for Viva!
Team-Viva!'s past achievements:
Simon's swim - Sunday 25th August 2013
On Sunday 25th August 2013 Viva!'s trusty designer Simon Parkin closed down Photoshop and picked up a pair of speedos, ready for the intimidating open water swimming event in Marlow Buckinghamshire.
Simon's race was a taxing 750m in an unpleasantly cold river Thames.
"It was fantastic! I loved taking part. Really enjoyed it. It was tough going at points but gave me a real sense of satisfaction to finish - for someone who's always shied away from sports that was a revelation for me. It was pouring with rain but I didn't even notice. No ill effects from drinking half the Thames! A great day!"
We say congratulations Simon, and thanks for joining the team!

Ash's run - Sunday 15th Sepember 2013
Back in May, Viva!'s IT bloke, Ash, signed up to run the Bristol Half Marathon. Having run this distance before added to the challenge by attempting to shave 15 minutes off his previous personal best time. 4 months of training 4 times a week later, Ash completed the course in 1hr 34min 23secs!
See Ash's JustGiving page here - and sponsor him if you're feeling generous.
Ash says: "Thanks, thanks and more thanks to those who supported me during this event. The run had an electric atmosphere, and I really enjoyed at least half of the race - before the pain kicked in. It was a great day and was proud to be representing Viva! in front of such a large crowd.”
