Charity challenge at Hull 10K

BUSINESS people from across East Yorkshire are being urged to get their running shoes on and take part in this year’s KC Hull 10K Corporate Challenge.

The competition – part of the popular Asda Foundation Run For All  Hull 10K – is one of the biggest corporate challenges in the region, each year attracting scores of businessmen and women who pit both their wits and physical prowess against each other.

Teams who sign up to take part, will not only challenge each other to be first past the finishing post in this year’s Hull 10K on May 19, they will also use their brain and brawns to be crowned winners of a Cryptic Quest event at a special pre-race networking night.

Entries for the KC Corporate Challenge were opened earlier this week at an event in Hull city centre hosted by KC – sponsors of the 2013 challenge, Run For All and representatives from SPS Group Services, one of the firms which has already signed up to this year’s contest.

Gary Young, KC’s business and consumer director, said: “We’re excited to be sponsoring the Hull 10K Corporate Challenge and to be working with Mike and his team. We’ve entered a team into the Corporate Challenge for the last three years and our employees have really enjoyed it.
“The Corporate Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for businesses of all sizes to get involved in one of the city’s best events. It’s a great team building opportunity and a way to engage in some friendly competition with other companies away from the usual business environment. The event is also a great way to raise money for charity, either one you feel passionately about or one of the Hull 10K official charities.”

A corporate team entry for 10 costs £550, while smaller firms can enter a team of five for £275. The price includes the networking evening.
