There are several ways your company can benefit. The event is designed as a healthy alternative to corporate entertainment to bring people together from across your business and the wider business community, and is a brilliant opportunity for:

  • team building, employee engagement and encouraging goodwill and camaraderie amongst employees
  • promoting health and fitness in the workplace
  • supporting the community through charity fundraising
  • local marketing and networking
  • company profile raising via social media
  • and most importantly to have a fun-packed corporate day out!

It’s a great team building event where you not only spend time with employees outside the workplace, but you also get to meet their extended family. When doing this you get to learn more about your colleagues and what drives and motivates them.

When submitting your entry form you would have selected your industry and what customers you supply. Race organisers will try to position your site as close to potential customers as possible for you to be able to approach them or grab their attention with your impressive site, hence why it is important to make sure you go the extra mile when setting up your site. It is then up to you to hand out advertising, make introductions and make yourselves known to everyone around you.

It mainly depends on why you are entering and what you are trying to get out of the day. If you are looking to stand out and want to raise your profile, the best option is to contact one of the race organisers prior to the event about additional advertising options. You can have one of the 9 sponsors plots, advertise on the big screen TV or purchase additional company plots to make a bigger impact on those around you. The best way to approach this question is to think about how you would make your business stand out at a business expo, exhibition or conference. You have your 6×4 space on the day, what you do with it is up to you.
