Limbering up for a business challenge at Bupa Great Edinburgh runFollow @PwC_Scotland
PwC is limbering up as it prepares to go head to head with other Big 4 accountancy firms in the Bupa Great Edinburgh Run Business Challenge to be held in the Capital on Sunday 2 October.
Swapping mobiles, laptops and number crunching for the urban gym, Maggie Robb, corporate sustainability manager at PwC joined Blair Nimmo, partner and head of restructuring at KPMG in Scotland, Neil Patey, transaction advisory services partner at Ernst & Young and Gavin Hood, corporate finance advisory partner from Deloitte to help launch the event – as well as get in a bit of early practice.
The Business Challenge is a race within the Bupa Great Edinburgh Run where business teams comprised of a minimum of four and a maximum of eight male, female or mixed sex runners, pit themselves against the clock and other teams while pounding around a historic 10km long city circuit.
Starting and finishing against the backdrop of Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat, the company team to cross the finishing line with the fastest accumulative time jogs off with the accolade of being Scotland's fittest and fastest workers! There are also prizes for the top three teams in each category (male, female, mixed).
First staged in 1991, the Bupa Great Edinburgh Run annually attracts over 10,000 people, including world-class male and female runners. In 2010, the race was won by Titus Mbishei of Kenya who crossed the line in 28:46, some 14 seconds ahead of his countryman and 2008 Olympic 5000m bronze medallist, Edwin Soi. Florence Kiplagat of Kenya took the women’s title in 32:10.
