Exeter’s Great West Run sponsored by Tozers – company challenge
Tozers Solicitors is the headline sponsor of Exeter’s Great West Run on 18 October 2015. The Devon law firm has organised a group of approximately 50 people to run the half-marathon and has encouraged a number of other local professional service firms such as Francis Clark, Simpkins Edwards and Brewin Dolphin to enter teams into the Company Challenge.
As the organisers of Exeter’s Great West Run say: “The Company Challenge is a great way to inspire a workplace, set a challenge and motivate employees to be active and take part in a great community event!
“Why not rally some work colleagues, enter a team and encourage your company to back your efforts? It could also be a great opportunity for some healthy competition between rival companies!” You may find that a number of your colleagues are already entered to run, so it will just be a matter of formally entering them as a team.
Company teams can be made up of a minimum of four entrants, with no maximum. The winning team will be comprised of the top four fastest finishers within a mixed team. It costs £34 per person to enter Exeter’s Great West Run and the firm that wins the Company Challenge will be given a prize donation of £250 to give to the charity of their choice.
Devon Air Ambulance (DAAT) is Tozers’ charity of the year for 2015 and a Just Giving page has been set up for their runners. Donations are welcomed at: https://www.justgiving.com/TozersGWR2015/
DAAT is also involved in Exeter’s Great West Run 2015 as the Schools Challenge charity partner. The children set off on their challenge at 9:20am on 18 October after the half-marathon runners have started.
Entries for this year’s Exeter’s Great West Run close at midnight on Monday 21st September, so if you want to take part in this half-marathon, you must register in the next few days.
