The Deutsche Bank Dashers C team are currently in the top spot following the first Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management Corporate Cup race which took place on Wednesday 30 April.

The new lunch time race series is organised by Run Jersey.

‘Standard Chartered A’ and ‘Salty Seales’ from Saltgate Ltd are currently second and third in the team placings.

The full results from the first race can be found on the Run Jersey website.

‘The Corporate Cup’ is a new 5km race series aimed at all businesses in Jersey with keen runners. The races are taking place on a monthly basis throughout the summer.

The series is a team based event with the best three races counting towards the overall standings.

“It was great to see such a good turnout at the first race for the Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management Corporate Cup,” said Grahame Lovett, Chief Executive of Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, Offshore.

“This race gives the local business community the chance for a bit of healthy competition away from the office and it’s evident from the times achieved in this first race that this is going to be a very competitive series. The best three races count towards the overall results and there are six opportunities for teams to get a top time so it’s anyone’s series at the moment and I look forward to seeing how the teams and the individuals progress.”

“With 32 teams having entered for the first race there was a fantastic atmosphere and as more teams join in this will only increase, to become a highly competitive race series.

Digby Ellis-Brecknell, Race Director and Endurance Events Organiser for Run Jersey, said: “Although competitive, the main aim is about getting outside during the working day with work colleagues and doing something different, the event is as much for those who are new to running as the more experienced.

The next race will take place on 21 May starting from La Frégate, Jardin de la Mer at 12:45pm.

The other races in the series will take place on 18 June, 16 July, 20 August and 17 September.

With five more races to run there is still plenty of time to join up, so please email digby@runjersey.co.uk for further details or visit http://www.runjersey.co.uk/#/corporate-cup/4583240453 for more information and an entry form.
