Barry Hampson marks 10th marathon, raising awareness for the Mental Health Charity, Mind

Barry Hampson, Test and Program Sales Manager for Accelonix Ltd, is participating in this year’s London Marathon, taking place on the 22nd April 2018. Barry is undertaking this 26.2-mile marathon in support of Mental Health Awareness as he raises money for Mind, a charity providing information, advice and support across England and Wales to individuals experiencing mental health problems or concerns.

In training for his 10th marathon, Barry has spent the last months building up his stamina over some intense training sessions, running with his local club, the South Cheshire Harriers, in addition to getting in the miles in between customer visits, across the UK and Ireland. Passionate about fitness, positive mental health and overall wellbeing, Barry has completed a number of cross country runs as well as half-and-full marathon road races over the years, raising money for a number of charities. His first London marathon was in 1987 and this year sees him return to the streets of London, this time motivated by his commitment to Mind.
