With the closing date just two weeks away, teams competing in the HSBC 10K Corporate Challenge are reminded to enter now to be in with a chance of winning one of five new prize categories in this year’s event.
Open to all private and public sector businesses and organisations, the HSBC 10K Corporate Challenge is part of the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running on 2 October 2011. Teams of four to six employees are invited to compete for the Fastest Team in one of the five team prize categories, with an additional award for the Fastest Team Overall. The categories are:
• Accountancy & Finance
• Legal & Property
• Energy & Engineering
• Public Sector
• Jack of All Trades.
Training encourages team members to build fitness – and fun! – into their daily routine as they prepare for the event. The HSBC 10K Corporate Challenge is open to employers and employees from all sectors of business and industry.
The scenic route for the 10K takes runners through the outskirts of Inverness and then into the centre of the Highland capital, finishing in a spectacular location next to the River Ness. The flat course offers excellent potential for a fast time, making it popular with runners throughout the country.
A fantastic programme of entertainment is on offer in the Festival village for all family and friends turning out to cheer on the runners. Live music, the Baxters Food and Drink Fayre, a sports expo and activities for kids, a Wee Nessie run for under 5s, means there is lots to do for runners and companions of all ages.
Entry is open until 12 September for all Festival events including the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon, Baxters River Ness 10K and the Baxters River Ness 5K Fun Run. Places for the Marathon remain open for charity, club and overseas runners only.
In this year of Active Scotland, the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running on Sunday 2 October 2011 is a great opportunity for everyone to take part in a running event. Visit www.lochnessmarathon.com now to find out more.
