We were thrilled to support the ever-more successful Saint Clair Vineyard Half Marathon again this year. At Thomas’s we love getting behind such a great flagship event – and we want to thank the organisers for doing such a marvellous job putting on not only an incredible occasion but also promoting Marlborough so well.

Competitors had a ball, judging by the fantastic feedback they gave the organisers and the rate at which tickets have been selling out for next year’s event! (You can read more of a debrief here). If you haven’t already done it, you really ought to add it to your bucket list.

Our own Jamie and Paula (in the picture above) were pretty happy with their race, and happy with their stylish Mons Royale merino gear. Paula, who was doing her fourth Saint Clair Vineyard Half thought it was “a totally amazing day” and loved hearing the comments from those runners there for the first time. She wore the Mons Tech top for the race, “Despite the heat it performed really well and looked good too!” Check out our Mons Royale range here.

You may have heard that we originally had a somewhat larger Thomas’s team entered, and while we don’t want to sound like we’re making excuses … the rest of us had to man the shop and our stand at the race as it was such a big weekend for the store!

Following the sporting challenge, we’ve got a bit of a design challenge happening here over winter. Keep an eye out for our next blog – a follow-up to the packed-out event held at Thomas’s with the inspiring Kate Duncan, interior designer.
