Tim Lambert to run 150 miles for charity in ultramarathon challenges

Tim Lambert of Bath based property investment firm Parallel Capital is preparing to run two gruelling ultramarathons in a bid to raise £2,000 for Hope for Tomorrow, a charity that reduces hospital visits for cancer patients by providing mobile treatment units.

Tim, who is head of investment property at Parallel, will tackle the North Downs Way 50-mile Ultramarathon on 18th May 2013 in a cross-country run traversing hills and rough terrain from Farnham, Surrey to Knockholt Pound, Kent. His target will be to reach the finish line within 9.5 hours. A few months later on 10th August, Tim will take on the North Downs 100, racing along the same route for the first 50 miles and carrying on for another 50 miles to Wye in Kent with a target time of 21 hours.

Already absorbed in a challenging training regime for the events, Tim, 31, said: “I want to face big challenges that push me physically and mentally to my very limits. In the process, I’ll be raising money for Hope for Tomorrow’s extremely worthy cause, which will really help to spur me on.”

Each weekday Tim rises at 5am for a training run of between 7 and 10 miles before returning home in Batheaston to have breakfast with his wife and two young children. He then heads to Parallel’s offices on James Street West where Tim works with private investors, creating, and identifying, property development schemes that provide short and long term investment opportunities. Tim explained: “Parallel, which is a subsidiary of the Bath based financial services firm Fidelius, links private investors to high value development schemes, or buy-to-let schemes; each private investor contributes to a scheme for a future return on the investment.”

He added: “The biggest challenge is fitting my training plans round an enjoyable but demanding job, and the needs of my family; I go for an 18-25 mile training run every weekend.”

Hope for Tomorrow, which is Fidelius’ chosen charity of the year, provides mobile chemotherapy units, in partnership with the NHS, to patients so they can be treated close to home rather than travelling to hospital.

There are currently four units and five nurses’ support vehicles operating in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Hampshire. Another two units are due to be launched during 2013.
