We are very proud of our MD, John Krause, who completed his 115th marathon at this year’s London Marathon, achieving his own personal best.
John says he started running marathons 15 years ago as part of a mid-life crisis but now runs the marathon distance of 26.2 miles every three weeks all over the world. Over the past few years, he has raised more than £8,000 for Stem4, the charity set up by his wife, Dr Nihara Krause after the death of their daughter’s school friend.
John completed the Virgin London Marathon in three hours eight minutes, beating his previous best of three hours eleven minutes which he achieved four years ago in Malta.
John has now decided to take things a step further and has signed up for an Ironman triathlon in September. For this he will be swimming, cycling and running against the clock. He is also taking part in the 100 mile London to Surrey bike ride!
We’re pleased to say that between all this activity John keeps Diespeker at the forefront of the world of natural stone and terrazzo with his energy and expertise. Alongside major commercial contracts, upcoming projects include a bespoke terrazzo fountain, basement swimming pool, sauna and changing rooms, and the creation of a unique range of luxury tables in association with interior designer Maddux Creative.
