Firms across the East Riding were game for a laugh when they took part in a fun social evening ahead of this Sunday’s KCOM 10K Corporate Challenge.
Scores of companies will be out to lift the title of fastest team in the race when they compete in the challenge, a popular feature of the Asda Foundation Hull 10K.
Organisations taking part in the event had the chance to claim an early victory at a Games Night social event in which they battled for points in a series of games including table football, air hockey, a giant version of Connect 4, noughts and crosses, bowling and Jenga.
Spire Healthcare emerged as the winners with SGS Graphics taking second place and KCOM and Lord Mayor’s Charity in joint third place.
Lucy Jones, Corporate Manager with Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, organisers of the 10K, said: “The social evening was a great success. Not only was it a chance for companies to engage in a bit of pre-race fun, it provided an excellent opportunity for networking.
“Well done to Spire Healthcare on their Games Night victory. All attention now turns to Sunday when the Corporate Challenge trophy will be up for grabs. We wish all those taking part the very best of luck.”
The times of the first three team members home on Sunday will be used to decide the eventual winners.
Thousands are expected to take part in the Asda Foundation Hull 10K, now in its seventh year.
Sunday’s race gets underway at 10am. Starting and finishing in the city centre, the course takes runners along the Humber, past some of the city’s best-loved landmarks, including the Marina and The Deep, and through Hull’s historic heart.
The race is supported by Asda Foundation, KCOM, Hull City Council, MKM Building Supplies, Arco, Arla Protein, ViiSana, Hull Daily Mail, Viking FM, Banana Kick, LTS and Aftershokz.
