The Negotiator’s Grant Leonard ran the London Marathon on 26 April, in aid of Crisis, the charity which aims to end homelessness. He was part of a team of over 30 runners who between them raised £80,000, smashing their target for donations for Crisis.

If you would like to contribute, we’ll give you a namecheck and thank you in the next issue of The Negotiator. Grant’s effort was supported by many in the agency industry, such as Countrywide Residential Lettings, CPBigwood, Thomas Property Group, Ravensworth Print, Let Alliance, Pensord Press, Glide, The Inhouse Way, Homeflow and LWPR, Intermedia Brand Marketing, OnBoard Pro – as well as his family and friends, of course.
It was Grant’s first attempt at a marathon and he finished in 3hr 49m, which was 10,638th out of 37,540 finishers! “A massive ‘thank you’ to those in the property industry who supported me in this – and of course, my friends and family,” said Grant. “It’s a crazy thing to put yourself through, and it was one of the most rewarding, exciting – and physically difficult days of my life. And for me, that’s it – a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience… maybe!”
