Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce invites you to our AGM and annual dinner.
To have run every London Marathon since 1981 is an achievement worthy of praise, but to have accomplished that feat under three hours on every occasion (bar one) marks Chris Finill out as a special runner indeed.
Growing up living on the same road in Harrow where Sir Roger Bannister spent his early years, and then attending the same primary school, Finill’s running prowess was perhaps inevitable from a young age.
A British champion at 100km and for running 24 hours, he represented England at the Commonwealth Games Ultradistance Championships in Keswick, Cumbria, in 2009.
Chris also ran across the United States from New York to California in the autumn of 2011, in a mind-boggling 79 days and 22 hours.
He joins us to share some stories from the London Marathon, ultra running adventures and his profession, where he is the Bursar at Duke of Kent School.
The annual dinner is open to members and non-members, and tickets are only £20 each.
Partners are very welcome. Space at this event is limited and we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.
You can also purchase two tickets for £35, saving £5, or a table of six for £100, saving £20!
