Yorkshire’s largest independent firm of Chartered accountants, BHP, are to sponsor the new Corporate Challenge in which companies will compete for the title of fastest firm at the York 10K.
The BHP Corporate Challenge is a new addition to the popular 10K, which will attract thousands of runners to the city on Sunday 4th August.
Daniel Sowden, Partner at BHP, which has offices in York, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the York 10K Corporate Challenge, which will benefit the work of some excellent charities as well as injecting a bit of friendly inter-firm rivalry into the event.
“We have a large charity specialist offering in the York area as well as services such as assurance, advisory, corporate finance and tax, therefore sponsoring this event is a perfect fit.”
Organised by not-for-profit company Run For All, the York 10K is one of the region’s biggest charity road runs and since its launch in 2009 over 50,000 people have taken part, helping to raise over £2.5m for good causes.
BHP entered a 41-strong team in last year’s event and sponsored the VIP area.
Nicola Christian, Sponsorship and Corporate Manager, of Run For All, said: “We are enormously grateful to BHP for choosing to sponsor our new York 10K Corporate Challenge. It’s a great way for a company’s staff to get fitter, support a good cause and engage in a bit of useful networking.”
BHP are inviting you to join them at the York 10K this year to see if your team can be crowned Corporate Challenge winners in 2019.
Whether your company are looking to achieve your CSR goals and raise funds for your chosen charity or looking for another opportunity for a bit of healthy competition, this is the event for you.
Its time to swap your office wear for trainers and give your team a challenge to look forward to this year.
Each team entering the York 10K BHP Corporate Challenge will receive branded team t-shirts, race day hospitality in the fantastic Ebor stand at York Racecourse and a framed team photo to display with pride in your office. As well as being included in profile-raising news stories concerning the 10K, awards will be presented post-race to the fastest 3 teams!
All there is left for you to do now, is simply get your team registered online and let the team training begin.
