On the 1st October 2023, Mr Hawkes ran the Cardiff Half Marathon. He completed the half marathon on behalf of the UK Sepsis Trust which is a charity very close to his heart. After weeks of training, he joined over twenty thousand other runners on the start line in Cardiff.
Mr Hawkes managed to complete the 13.1-mile course in 2 hours 14 minutes and 35 seconds. In doing so, he managed to raise £1100 for his chosen charity. Mr Hawkes is looking forward to his next big run in 2024!
