Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management is sponsoring a new lunch time race series organised by Run Jersey.
‘The Corporate Cup’ is a new 5km race series aimed at all businesses based in Jersey with keen runners.
The races will take place on a monthly basis throughout the summer. Each race will start from La Fregate, Jardin de la Mer at 12:45pm and the first race will take place on Wednesday 30 April.
The series is a team based event with the best three races counting towards the overall standings.
The event will be split into three categories; Men’s, Ladies’ and mixed with a Corporate Cup Trophy to be won in each. There will be spot prizes for individual performances as well as other categories such as the most improved team.
Teams will be made up of four people (mixed teams must include at least two female runners) from the same company and they will be able to substitute runners to cover for sickness or annual leave.
“Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management is pleased to sponsor this new race series for local businesses,” said Grahame Lovett, Chief Executive of Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, Offshore.
“The Corporate Cup will give Jersey’s business community the chance to put their running skills to the test and I’m sure many of the teams will relish the opportunity to compete against other businesses on the island.”
“The Corporate Cup is an exciting new race format that we believe will appeal to both competitive runners and novices alike,” said Digby Ellis – Brecknell,
Race Director and Endurance Events Organiser for Run Jersey.
“This monthly challenge will bring about an exciting change to the lunch break with a little bit of healthy competition between businesses thrown in for good measure. We are extremely grateful to Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management for their enormous support in this venture.”
The races will take place on 30 April, 21 May, 18 June, 16 July, 20 August and 17 September.
