Pipe Center/Climate Center managing director in charity challenge

Pipe Center and Climate Center managing director Dean Fradgley has completed the Great Langdale St George’s Day Run in support of Cancer Research UK.

Dean teamed up with Flamco, headline sponsors of the race, and colleagues Iain Mills (regional trading director Scotland & the North Regional team), Grant Johnstone (regional sales manager, Building Services) and Gary Wilson (regional sales manager, Industrial) to run 10k and raise money for Flamco’s chosen charity for the event.

Now in its 14th year, the Great Langdale St George’s Day Run was set up by Rod Berry in 1988. The course takes a scenic undulating route along the Langdale valley, and is a test for runners from all around the country.

“It was great to team up with Flamco to help them raise money for such worthy causes,” Dean Fradgley said. “Ian Roberts, the managing director of Flamco, clearly loves pain as he competes in events like this all the time.

“I’m not naturally a runner. I box a few times a month, but that’s it – so I had to make a real effort to run 10k several times a week to ensure I could perform on the day.

Pipe Center and Climate Center runners recorded the following times: Grant Johnstone 48.34 min, Gary Wilson 54.59 min, Dean Fradgley 1:02.08 min and Iain Mills 1:10.22 min.

The money raised totalled £500 and has been passed to Flamco to distribute to Cancer Research UK.
