It’s first bragging rights to Arco as firms across the East Riding gear up to show their rivals a swift pair of heels in Sunday’s KC Hull 10K Corporate Challenge.

Over 450 businessmen and women will be out to show theirs is the fastest firm when they take part in the challenge, which forms part of the popular Asda Foundation Hull 10K.

Companies taking part in the event were given an early opportunity to claim bragging rights at a fun social evening on Tuesday 3rd June, that included the 10K Tournament, a light-hearted cycle-themed event in which teams tackled various stages.

It was Arco who emerged triumphant with ironmongers and tool suppliers FR Scott Ltd in second and construction company Hobson Porter Ltd taking third place.
Graham Watson, corporate manager at Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, organisers of the 10K, said: “Our corporate evenings provide a great opportunity for networking and allow teams to engage in a bit of pre-race banter.

“The event in Hull went very well and congratulations go to Arco for their 10K Tournament victory. It sets things up very nicely for Sunday when we shall see which team will carry off the corporate challenge trophy.”

The times of the first three team members home on Sunday 8th June will be used to decide the winner.

Over 5,000 people are expected to take part in the Asda Foundation Hull 10K – a record field for the run, which is now in its fifth year and has raised well over £500,000 for charity since its launch.

Sunday’s race gets underway at 9.30am. Starting and finishing in the city centre, the course takes runners along the Humber, past some of the city’s best-loved landmarks, including the Marina and The Deep, and through Hull’s historic heart.

The event’s partner charities are Echoes Foundation, CLIC Sargent, Martin House Children’s Hospice, Dove House Hospice, Macmillan Cancer Support, Candlelighters, Yorkshire Cancer Research, Hull and East Riding Breast Friends, Hull Children’s University and Jane Tomlinson Appeal.

It is supported by the Asda Foundation, KC, Hull City Council, The Hull Daily Mail, Viking FM, MKM Building Supplies, Arco, Runners World, Powerade, Run247 and Muscle Milk.
