Telford man to
tackle Paris Marathon

March 2017: Marvin-Dean Palmer (32) from Telford will tackle the Paris Marathon on 9th April to raise funds for Cancer Research. 
The race covers 26.6 miles of the Paris streets taking in iconic sites such as Champs-Elysees and Eiffel Tower, testing participants to the full.
Marvin works as a Product Specialist for PCS, leading product developers for the publishing market based in Wolverhampton.  He only started running in September 2016 and has taken on different challenges each month.  These have included the Wolf Run, Reebok Spartan and other distances but this is the first time he will compete in a full marathon.

“This event is a new challenge for me and I will be dealing with mixed terrain and cobbled ground, as well as the heat in what is my favourite city, “ comments Marvin.  “My mother was diagnosed with cancer last year and fortunately has beaten it, but I am running for her and any cancer sufferers and survivors.  I am hoping to finish in 3hrs 30 mins or less and have set my goal on ultra marathons next!

Hannah Lloyd, Marketing Manager at PCS comments – “Marvin is a valued member of the PCS team and we are right behind his efforts as he trains and takes part in the Paris Marathon.  As a business we always like to keep one step ahead of the fast pace of the publishing industry and we wish Marvin well doing just the same!”
