We wanted to let you know that we’re taking part in the 30th running of the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge ® in Battersea Park on Wednesday 20 July.
Seven hardy Team 10Eighty souls will be running around the picturesque riverside park in a couple of weeks: Liz, Hannah, Sarah, Michael, Dave, Nick and Nigel. Joan is our ‘Company Captain’ so she’ll be responsible for orientation, race bibs and making sure everyone provides essential info prior to the run.
The run is 5.6km (3.5 miles in old money) which for some of us, like Marathon Man Dave Harrison, will be a literal walk in the park. Other team members will be a little more daunted by the distance…
Tees for everyone
Everyone who completes the race gets a 2016 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge t-shirt. We intend to post photos of the team modelling their newly acquired attire after the 20th. And thanks to the tech used by the organisers we’ll have individual timings for each Team 10Eighty runner.
JPMorgan Chase Foundation will be making a donation to the event beneficiary, Age UK and are encouraging everyone to make individual donations. A donation of just £5 enables Age UK to answer a call from a lonely older person who has no one else to turn to. You can donate online at www.ageuk.org.uk/jpmorgan.
Share using #JPMCC
We’ll be sure to share pics and thoughts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #JPMCC but unfortunately we’ll have to leave our drone back at the office because they’re not allowed for photography at Battersea Park. Shame.
