A 15-strong RD:IR team entered the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge on Wednesday 8th July 2015.
There were near perfect conditions for the 5.6k run around Battersea Park and the planned strike action did little to affect the event or atmosphere. Each team member completed the race in a respectable time, with Peter Challis leading the charge for the boys with a time of 24.58 and Tom O’Grady a close second with 26.13. Sarah McKenzie (former RD:IR employee, now RD:IR client via Britvic plc) led for the girls, completing the course in a speedy 28.33.
The turnout was fantastic, with over 14,000 runners participating on the evening and hundreds of Corporates represented.
A full report of the event can be found on the event website here.
Post-event, J.P. Morgan will make a donation on behalf of all entrants to their chosen charity this year, Age UK.
RD:IR continued their fundraising for Save the Children and raised a total of £280 in sponsorship money.
