Business battle at Leeds 10k

Have your say

Entries are still flooding in for the Clarion Leeds 10K Corporate Challenge with almost 850 people now getting ready for the biggest business battle in the region.

The event, now in its ninth year, is part of the Jane Tomlinson’s Run for All Asda Foundation Leeds 10K, and is a ‘challenge within a challenge’ where corporate teams vie for the title of fastest firm in the city.

Among those signed up in 2015 are Northern Rail, Ultimate Finance, Epiphany, Armstrong Watson, Savills Leeds, Grant Thornton and Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors.

All will be laying down the gauntlet on race day Sunday July 12 – as well as at a pre-event fun social evening and quiz night.

Epiphany CEO Rob Shaw said: “We are absolutely delighted to be supporting Jane Tomlinson’s Run for All for the sixth consecutive year.

“The Jane Tomlinson Appeal is a great charity doing astounding things, and its ethos fits with our brand.

“The Clarion Leeds 10K Corporate Challenge brings together local organisations like Epiphany who support, raise money and enjoy a great team day out for a worthy cause.

Andy Wood, practice leader at Grant Thornton’s Leeds office, said: “The Leeds 10K is always a great event, bringing together individuals and businesses to raise funds for a variety of charities.

“As a keen runner, I’m taking on a number of challenges this year and wanted to inspire my colleagues to don their trainers too. There will be some friendly rivalry between the corporate teams so we will be training hard ahead of July 12.”

Entry to the Corporate Challenge is open to teams of at least five. To find out more go to
