Karen England, Sales Manager for Accent Inns finishing the Victoria Marathon

The Marathon began  in September 1980 with a single 26.2 mile race and now offers five different events for all ages. What other Marathon can boast a finish line as scenic as Victoria’s inner harbour in front of our famous  historic Parliament Buildings (actually it’s the legislative building but people know it by the “other” name).  I know everyone at the Accent Inn Victoria really enjoys meeting people from all over that come to run in our “famous” marathon. The race attracts people come from all over the globe  including some famous Kenyan participants.  One of the folks running the race this years was Accent Inns own Karen England. We are all very proud of Karen , Accent Inns Regional Sales Manager  Victoria.  She did what many of us would like to do but never seem to get around too. Well done Karen!
