UM’s client, Marie Curie, has partnered with a brand new event coming to the UK called Run Ragnar White Cliffs. Ragnar is the world’s largest series of overnight running relays that have been taking place throughout America and Canada and now it’s coming to the UK.

Teams come together to conquer a course over two days and one night, all done with friends and a community of runners by their side. The Run Ragnar White Cliffs is excatly what it says, running alongside the white cliffs of the South East coast of England, from Maidstone to Brighton. Runners will conquer 170 miles of road running with 10 friends and 2 vans in a Ragnar Relay, or camp with 8 friends and conquer a set of gritty trail running loops at a Ragnar Trail Relay. teams of 10 will be in two vans or MPV’s and run relay style, day and night, along the most scenic routes the UK has to offer. Only one runner hits the road at a time. Each participant runs three times, with each “leg” ranging between 3-8 miles and varying in difficulty. Runners average about 17 total miles.

The inaugural UK Run Ragnar will take place on the 23rd – 24th September and anyone can join. UM are looking for SJSers who are interested in taking part in an IPG Mediabrands team, so if you fancy a challenge, please email Charlie Riggall – charlie.riggall@umww.com and he can let you know all the details.

 

And for all those that don’t fancy the thought of running around England, how about getting involved in Bake Off 3.0!

New format, new judges, consolation prizes, sponsorship, fund raising and mountains of cake!

Do you have the flour power, the eggstreme need to knead and ultimately proove yourself worthy of the title, SJS Bake Off Champion!?

Announcing this year’s Bake Off, with a twist! In the spirit of One SJS, Bake Off is now open to the building and will be accepting budding bakers from all floors. More people means more cake! YES!

To ensure there are no soggy bottoms we have a small team in the mix this year securing prizes and treats along the way. Never forget all donations to taste the cakes go to Marie Curie, both a wonderful client and cause.
