In the week where the London Marathon would have usually been all over the airwaves, the Symmetrys team decided to run its own kind of marathon instead. A virtual marathon! Over three days, the team was challenged to reach the 26 mile mark together as a group, while working from home and still practicing social distancing.
We’re pleased to report that not only did we meet our 26 mile target on day 2 of the challenge with a day to spare but we completely smashed all expectations and exceeded our target by 20.8 miles. Together we covered a whopping 46.8 miles!
We’re so proud of the whole team who made a great effort to get involved in the challenge and even encouraged family members (including pets) to take part too.
In conclusion, the challenge was great for our team spirit and camaraderie. Working towards a common goal was a fun way to keep engaged with colleagues while we’re all working from home. The challenge successfully encouraged and motivated members of the team, who admitted to not doing much exercise, to get involved and keep active.
We hope that the challenge has encouraged our team to continue the commitment to keeping active daily.
Have you come up with any fun ideas to keep active? Keep in touch and let us know how you’re getting on.
