Businesses looking for an exciting team building project have a great new option to get involved in a top sporting event. The Windsor Half Marathon, which takes place in the regal - literally - setting of Windsor Great Park, has added a corporate challenge to the programme for Sunday, 25 September.
The new competition, the Macdonald Windsor Hotel WHM Corporate Challenge, has been introduced to give businesses and their guests the opportunity to compete at this unique setting, while encouraging fitness in the work place and raising money for charity.
Race director Peter Hier commented: “We are excited to launch the Corporate Challenge. The Macdonald Windsor Hotel WHM Corporate Challenge offers a unique platform for team building for companies of all sizes. The new challenge will also create friendly, competition between businesses, from inter-departmental challenges to taking on competitors. We are looking forward to seeing the fastest teams on the podium in September.”
The Windsor Half Marathon sells out each year within months of the opening of entries, and a limited number of 250 places have been reserved for corporate runners. A minimum of 4 male and 4 female runners are required to finish in order to score in the team results. The race director has confirmed that guest runners are also welcome.
Details of entry, fund raising opportunities and sponsorship packages are available at the event website.
