Ashorne Hill team members will be running the local ‘Regency Run 10km’ in April, raising funds for charity, whilst raising their fitness and team bonding during training. A group of 7 staff from across the business have been lacing up their running shoes over the winter months, with regular runs and group workout sessions preparing them for the 10km run around Leamington Spa on Sunday 15th April.

The run is linked to Ashorne Hill’s ongoing culture of promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace, as part of the organisation’s dedication and commitment to staff, customers, the environment and green initiatives. Other projects include a mindfulness programme created by the in-house digital learning solutions team, and healthy eating promotion throughout the venue and facilities.

The Regency Run will see 2,500 runners take in a route around the parks and streets of Leamington Spa, with a number of runners raising funds for charity. Ashorne Hill’s chosen charity for this event is Breast Cancer Care and the fundraising page is available for donations:

Amongst the team is Renata Homer, Ashorne Hill’s General Manager, who started running at Christmas and is looking forward to her first 10km run. “As a non-runner it has been a hard slog but the success factors have encouraged me to keep going; running with colleagues and friends has made the journey more entertaining than if I had tackled the challenge alone and of course the competitiveness amongst us has spurred us all on. We are doing something in the local community and at the same time supporting a charity which is close to home for a number of runners. What started as a chore is now a lifestyle change which has had a really positive affect on fitness and wellbeing. It has been great to get support and encouragement from many colleagues and now I am just looking forward to achieving my goal”.
