Lawyers from Chadwick Lawrence romped to victory in the race to find the fastest firm in Leeds.
The team from the company’s Pudsey office showed their rivals a clean pair of heels to carry off the trophy in the Clarion Leeds 10K Corporate Challenge.
A popular feature of the Asda Foundation Leeds 10K – which this year celebrated its 10th running, the event attracted teams from over 60 companies, with the times of the first three team members home used to calculate the winners.
Chadwick Lawrence’s team clocked a total time of 1:54:13 – an average time of 38:04 – to lift the trophy. KPMG recorded an average time of 39:49 to finish second and Sagars A team was third with an average of 40:31.
Sagars’ Kevin Hoult crossed the finish line in 36.01 to be the fastest male runner in the challenge, while Rushbond’s Georgina Maud clocked 41:16 to pick up the title of fastest woman in the challenge.
Roger Hutton, Joint Managing Partner at Clarion, which has sponsored the challenge since 2007, said: “The 10th Clarion Leeds 10K Corporate Challenge was a memorable occasion.
“There is always such an amazing atmosphere at the Leeds 10K and the many Yorkshire organisations that enter the corporate challenge certainly add to the occasion.
“It was fantastic to see so many teams turn out to support the challenge, raising money for some great causes and having a great time doing it. Congratulations to everyone that took part.”
Charlie Tatman, Event Manager at event organiser Run For All, said: “The corporate challenge adds extra fun and spice to the Leeds 10K and we are enormously grateful to Clarion for their outstanding support.”
The Leeds 10K forms of the lasting legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson, who raised nearly £2m by completing a series of gruelling endurance events despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.
It is also part of the successful Asda Foundation 10K series which includes runs in Lincoln, Nottingham, Burnley, Leeds, York, Bury and Sheffield.
