In June 2018 Chris Wallace completed the St Albans Half Marathon. The St Albans Half Marathon has raised over £800,000 for over 80 national and local charities since it began in 1982.
In 2018 over 7,000 people took part in all the events which included the half marathon, a 1.5 mile fun run, a 5K race and a walking half marathon.
The event was founded in 1982 by local businessman Phil Gibson who wanted to raise money for a hospital scanner following the death of his Mother from breast cancer. The first event was called the ‘Mini Marathon’ and 1,300 people competed in it.
Chris Wallace, Managing Director, Visionary Accountants, St Albans. Hertfordshire said: ‘The Half Marathon is now a regular sporting fixture and attracts athletes from all over the world. It was great to be a part of one of the biggest charity events in St Albans. I trained hard through the bad winter for the half marathon so I was pleased to complete the course in better weather!’
