ICG's very own running man took his position on a unique relay race around the entire coast of the UK, completing a 16 mile leg from Lancaster's River Lune to Carnforth.
Creative Director, Simon Couchman, joined people from across Lancashire to help Coasters GB in their mission to transport 'Barry the Baton' around our glorious coastline.
After seeing a poster about the event, Simon signed up on the Coasters GB website and training commenced.
"It was great to be part of such a huge event," said Simon.
"Despite the obligatory wind and rain it was a lot of fun and as I handed 'Barry the Baton' over to the next runner I wished them the best of luck.
"I will make sure I am at Blackpool Tower in September to welcome Barry and the last runners back with a big cheer."
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas... 🎄🎅🏼💫✨ https://t.co/PmGGF8xupQ
