Rollits will be looking to retain its title of ‘fastest firm’ when companies from across the city take to the streets for the KC Hull 10K Corporate Challenge on Sunday 14 June.

The local law firm took the Corporate Challenge champions’ crown in 2014 and is hoping to keep hold of the trophy again this year.

Competition will be tough with over 25 companies having already signed up for the 2015 event but John Flanagan, partner at Rollits, says his team are ready and raring to go.

“Following on from our success in the 2014 Corporate Challenge when we were crowned the ‘fastest firm in Hull’, we will be back to defend our title,” he said.

“We’re pleased that in 2015 we are entering our largest team to date, with 18 of us from Rollits taking on the challenge of the Jane Tomlinson Hull 10K this time round.”

Last year saw over 450 local business people take part in the Corporate Challenge and race organisers are confident that number will rise in 2015.

Brendon Smurthwaite, KC’s Community Coordinator, added:

“This is the third successive year that we’ve been involved with the Hull 10K Corporate Challenge and it is a great event.

“The numbers taking part continue to grow year on year and I know the three teams we’re entering are really looking forward to the big day.”

Teams taking part enjoy corporate hospitality on race day and are also invited to a pre-event quiz evening where they can pit their wits against other local businesses.

The challenge is open to teams of five or more. The times of the first three team members home are added together and averaged out, with the quickest team carrying off the trophy and bragging rights.
