Hundreds of runners from businesses across Nottingham and the region have put their best foot forward to take part in the UK’s largest corporate relay race and take the total raised for charity soaring past the quarter of a million pound mark.
46 companies across the East Midlands, amongst these ADBA member Monsal took part in the tenth annual Cooper Parry Corporate Challenge to compete in its half-marathon relay event. The race, which is organised by business advisory firm Cooper Parry, raised over £25,000 for charity which means the event has now raised £270,000 since it began in 2003.
The overall winner of the 2012 event was Nottingham based Alexander Forbes who completed the relay in a time of 1:36:37.
Monsal who raised over £5,200, were the team who raised the most money for this year’s event charities, Treetops Hospice, Rainbows Children’s Hospice and NSPCC. They also managed very respectable times of 1:45:15 and 1:58:52 with their two teams.
