Recovery professionals notch up impressive time in London Marathon

Accountants proved they are fleet of foot this weekend, with two business
recovery directors at PricewaterhouseCoopers completing the London Marathon each
in less than three hours.

Nigel Rackham came 129th out of 35,000 runners with a speedy two hours 36
mins while colleague Chris Tilbrook recorded a respectable two hours 50 minutes.

Their times were close to professional running standards which typically
range from two hours to two hours 20 minutes.

Other runners from the profession were less speedy. KPMG partner Finbarr
O’Connell finished the marathon in exactly six hours, while fellow KPMG partner
Robert J Brent finished in 5:59.

E&Y managing partner Mark Otty was this year ‘too busy’ to run, the firm
said. Otty ran the marathon in 3:12 last year. Andy Raynor, CEO of Tenon, did
not run this year due to a broken foot.

Michael Mansfield, a senior manager from E&Y’s financial services
divsion, ran the race in 2:49, coming 459th.
