JOCKEY GARAGE's running success

by Saima Omar | 29 Mar 2017

Approved Garages can be found nationally, all around the country and our network is constantly growing. Many of our garages actively participate in community events, challenges, marathons, charity fundraising and simply doing something amazing.

We caught up with Jockey Garage, whose Workshop Manager, Carl Roberts is a keen runner and is part of the Pont-y-pwl district runners. He spends many evenings running, keeping fit and looking out for his next challenge.

On the 5th of March, Carl put himself forward for the Newport Half Marathon, hosted by St David's Hospice.

Carl who runs regularly for Pont-y-pwl & District Runners, completed the course in 1 hour 54 minutes.

He said: "Most of my customers know that I love running and are often asking me how I am getting on. It's a hobby and it really helps me keep fit and often raising awareness to certain charities. The garage team are all very supportive too."

Carl has also participated in the Snowdonia full marathon, which he completed beginning of November 2016.

Approved Garages network wishes Carl from Jockey Garages the best of luck on his next running challenge.
