After 65 days of pure effort, our sporting heroes from across the globe helped amass a simply incredible 97,646 miles for our internal employee engagement campaign, 'Race to Rio'.
It really has been an amazing journey with some inspirational stories along the way, but it’s time for those participants to put your feet up and have that well deserved massage.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and especially to our winners who pushed themselves all the way to Race to Rio glory and receive a selection of sport and nutritional goodies.
