Services Challenge Guidelines

The idea of the Challenges, staged within the Britain's Ocean Half Marathon is to enable companies to engage with their employees by promoting team spirit and a healthier lifestyle. It is also a great opportunity to work with local charities to raise funds for important causes.

Whilst we are not too prescriptive on the size and makeup of the team (minimum of 4), we would like the spirit of the event to reflect taking part rather than winning and therefore ask that teams should consist of employees, families and friends.

It would be frowned upon if “outsiders” were bought into teams just to bolster the chances of winning. We have already stipulated that where an employee is also a member of a running club they can choose to run for either but not both.
