"Three years ago I was watching comic relief and the next day when I was running, I had this thought that if we can do something as a company then we should. I thought about getting my company off their seats and running during the sport relief week. Get people fit and healthy and raise money for charity at the same time.
What would be a good challenge and doable yet inclusive to all people and not just sporty fit runners.
So I thought up “The Crazy 5 in Five” - to run 5 half marathons in five consecutive days, before work, all in the name of charity!
To get more people involved I also added two other options; for those who were not entirely crazy they could run 1 or 2 or as many half marathons as they wanted and then there we offered a half / half option , so running 10km as many days as they wanted.
The week was an incredible success, over £20,000 raised, over 100 people including some of our global colleagues and also clients.
2018 has come around very fast and we thought it would be a really great idea to do it all over again! We have almost 150 people signed up this time and hoping for an even more successful week!"
We love having the Anthony Nolan team running with us! They are always all smiles, I wonder if they will be 7 miles in when running for the challenge.
Team London are ready and raring for the challenge!
