A team of Curchod & Co’s finest athletes completed the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon on Sunday 11 March, raising over £1,000 for the Woking and Sam Beare Hospices.
Five runners from Curchod & Co’s four offices in Woking, Weybridge, Camberley and Farnham, of varying abilities from a complete running virgin to seasoned veterans, completed the 13.1-mile course. The race began at Woking Leisure Centre and took the runners through scenic countryside and the villages surrounding Woking and Guildford.
The team was made up of Curchod & Co partner, Nick Reeve, surveyors Katie Hemblade and Gary Whitaker, property manager Victoria Powers and the firm’s head of accounts, Sharen Meade. Nick, Gary and Victoria set their own personal best times for the distance.
Curchod & Co provides the Woking and Sam Beare Hospices with advice and support regarding the charity’s property portfolio.
Nick Reeve said: “Curchod & Co is a proud supporter of this fantastic charity, which specialises in delivering first-class care for its patients within Surrey. This was a challenging but enjoyable event that has helped us to raise a considerable sum of funding.”

Any time we start something new it is exciting and we are very motivated and committed. As time goes by, however, the burst of enthusiasm can wane as the reality of how much work is going to be involved kicks in. When you find yourself slacking a little and not being as enthused about the new change or goal you are working towards, that isn’t a sign to quit. It is a sign that it is time to re-commit.Meet the team
