The Country Club’s fellow Personal Trainer, Ricky, is hoping to raise £500 for the fantastic charity, The British Heart Foundation by taking on the challenge of the Edinburgh Marathon!

We spoke to Ricky about the upcoming challenge and asked a few questions about why he chose this charity… “I decided to take on this challenge in aid of British heart foundation because this charity means a lot to me and my family. It’s the first sole charity event I have signed up for and I have also never ran a marathon, but I am giving it a go!”
The marathon is for 26 miles and commences on Sunday 29th May 2022. Ricky is travelling down to Edinburgh the day before, with his family to prepare for the event. Patrington Haven Leisure Park, The Country Club and all of the team are behind Ricky all the way and supporting him 100% in this amazing challenge for charity.
We asked Ricky how his training has been going since he signed up to the challenge, “I’ve been training since February this year, which consists of running three times a week and strength training on legs in between. Over the past few months I have increased intensity and my distance goal post per run.”

A little bit about Ricky…
Gym members and visitors to the Holiday Park may have seen Ricky around the gym and swimming pool, but where did Ricky start out? Ricky has worked at The Country Club at Patrington Haven Leisure Park for over 4 years. Pulling pints in Guy’s Café Bar Restaurant is where he first started, but has always had a passion for fitness. The Park helped and encouraged Ricky to peruse his love for the gym and fitness, resulting in him now being a qualified Personal Trainer for the Country Club Gym. Visit www.countryclubpatrington.co.uk to learn more about the Gym and Swimming Pool facilities.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me so far and continue to support me with my training. I’m hoping, with the generous donations from others, I can achieve my end goal, contribute to this wonderful charity and say I have completed a marathon!”
Good luck Ricky, from all of the team at Patrington Haven Leisure Park and The Country Club!
