On Sunday 15 September, Just sponsored Run Reigate for the second consecutive year. Our fully branded marquee, stocked with everything from Bounce energy balls to miniature fans, scored prime position in the sun-drenched event village.
4800 runners took on the challenge, running - or walking/crawling – in the 5km, 10km or half marathon (21km) races. Priory Park was full to the brim with people, food and drink stalls, as well as lots of fun activities for the supporters.
This year we also sponsored the half marathon, with trophies and prizes for the fastest male and female runners in the over 55 categories. Carly Crust, Director of Group Compliance, having just finished running the half marathon herself, bounded on to the stage to present the awards and to talk about Just.
We were also proud to host our corporate charity, Re-engage, within our stand. Sarah Newell, the charity representative, was on hand to answer questions and tell people more about what the charity does.
In association with the charity we made sure we appealed to the younger audience with a cupcake colouring-in competition. A queue of children were treated to a cookie and the chance to win an Amazon gift card. The winner was announced during the afternoon with Sarah taking to the stage to talk about the charity and present the prize to a very lucky and happy 7 year old girl!
The event was a great opportunity to promote our brand to potential customers and employees, increasing our presence in the local community. Colleagues spoke to runners and supporters throughout the day about who we are and how we help people achieve a better later life.
Congratulations to all the Just employees who took part in the event.
