For the seventh successive year Team 10Eighty – this year represented by Michael Moran, Liz Sebag – Montefiore, Hannah Moran, Shannon Rowlands, Emma Mitchell, Rose Tett, Sarah Burgess, David Black and Meetika Malhotra, completed the JP Morgan 5.6K Corporate Challenge alongside runners from HSBC, PWC, Barclays; Citi, Natwest and many other London businesses.
They ran on the first night of J.P. Morgan’s London Corporate Challenge® on the 5.6-km course around Battersea Park, overlooking the River Thames, and just a short jog away from upscale Chelsea.
Over the two nights a (London) record-busting 30,648 entrants from 761 companies took part in the run.
On the first night, the fastest male was William Mycroft from Man Group , who finished in 17 minutes flat, while the fleetest female was Bethanie Murray from Capital One with a time of 20:11.
10Eighty’s Sarah Burgess crossed the finishing line in 31: 04. Liz Sebag-Montefiore conjured up a finishing time of 35:25 with David Black shortly after in 35:53 with the rest of the team completing the course not long after.

All of the runners, joggers and walkers efforts will help Alzheimer’s Society, the United Kingdom’s leading dementia charity.
The donation will go towards funding the Society’s Dementia Advisers and could help 595 people access a Dementia Adviser over a year. Dementia Advisers help people to come to terms with a diagnosis and navigate the care and support that is availableto them. They provide practical and emotional support to people affected by dementia. They offer tailored information so they can consider their future options, link people up with local professionals and services, and help them to access them.
