It was idneed a fantastic event and an eye-opener for many people including ourselves. We stayed to watch Mark sprint to the finish line, absolutely incredible! Here are some pictures of the moment you saw Rudolph Walker . We had lunch with him after the race and what a great man, the amount of charities and fundraisers he gets involved with is very inspiring. (Nendi)
