When Douglas Emslie isn’t serving as Managing Director of London-based Tarsus Group, a global company with 180 exhibitions, he is focusing on another one of his passions – running marathons.
The first marathon he tackled 3 decades ago when he was in university in his home country of Scotland. He ran the Glasgow Marathon in 3 hours and 27 minutes.
He was scheduled to run the following year’s marathon and was on track to run around 3 hours, when he was injured a week before.
After that, running marathons was put aside while he focused on his career and eventually growing a worldwide, successful company.
