Organised by Bondholder Sporting Futures the Central Health Derby 10K returning for its 17th year next April, and workplaces being encouraged more than ever before to get active, the event is an ideal way for bondholders to take part in a challenge with colleagues.
Workers from across Derbyshire are being invited to take part in the Business Team Challenge which sees teams of between 4-10 members run the distance, with the top 4 times being taken as the team time.
For the first time this year, Sporting Futures, Derby 10K organisers, are setting up a bondholder league. Bondholder team results will form their own league table and businesses will be able to gain ‘points’ by both entering participants but also providing volunteers if there are any colleagues who don’t want to run.
Emma Pilgrim, Events Manager for Sporting Futures, says, “with new initiatives in place to get people active both in the workplace and beyond, we think next year’s Central Health Derby 10K is a great event for teams to aim for. The distance is a challenge, but with help and training it is entirely manageable, and a real achievement.
“The plan we’ve put together with the help of Shelton Striders is designed to be flexible in order to accommodate people’s schedules, building up distance week-on- week until participants are confident and ready for the 10K.”
Business teams wanting to complete the distance together are invited to sign up at www.sporting-futures.org.uk/register. Teams can be between 4 and 10 in size.
