RD:IR were proud to once again field a team to take part in the annual J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge held on the 20th and 21st July 2016. The 5.6 km course wends its way around the iconic Battersea Park and attracts around 30,000 participants over the two days, raising money for charity.
The weather gods were kind to the 14 members of Team RD:IR, with the heat wave affecting London in the earlier part of the week giving way, on race-day Thursday, to balmy conditions. The team ranged in ability from regular runners to “can-do” walkers. Runners were joined by London’s new Mayor, Sadiq Khan, as part of his recently launched “London is Open” campaign. The event was started by quadruple Olympian and Gold medal winner Sir Matthew Pinsent.
