There is a specialist ‘Active Recruiters’ group that has been set up on Strava and been brilliant at giving that extra bit of motivation to get out and exercise and also keeping recruiters connected during this time, plus, who doesn’t love a bit of friendly rivalry and competition?! So, if you’re part of the industry and haven’t joined yet then, go on, get involved. Especially now that it’s turning it into a nationwide event (with your help of course!).
What’s the plan?
The idea is to get together on the same date (Friday 10th July ) across the country to run a course of your choosing, either a 10k or half marathon for the bravest amongst us. Why? Well just for the fun of it and because wecan!. And hopefully to raise a bit of money via sponsorship too. Not convinced yet? Well, there’s an Active Recruiter pack involved that’ll be sent to all runners in advance of the big day.
At the time of publication, the group has 127 members. If we can get 100 runners to take part we could raise a substantial amount of money for our chosen charity – Teenage Cancer Trust as we’re suggesting £25 sponsorship per person to take part, if you can. And we’ll have a lot of fun doing it! Cause for this one, it’s not about the winning, it’s all about the taking part. So, whether you’re channelling your inner Usain Bolt and are dabbing in anticipation already or you’re planning to walk around your course dressed as a fairy, with a wine-filled water bottle, everyone is welcome!
Follow these 5 simple steps to get involved –
If you’ve not already joined the group then, join here – https://www.strava.com/clubs/643131
Then choose your challenge and sign up:
- Active Recruiters 10k
- Active Recruiters ½ Marathon
Email – firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address so we can send you an Active Recruiters running pack. And please don’t worry, your details will not be stored or used for anything else, it’s just so we can send you your number, safety pins and wristband in advance of the big day.
If you can, get your friends and family to sponsor you for your efforts. We’re thinking £25 per person would be a great result but every little helps if you can’t manage that. Donations here >> https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/active-recruiter-challenge
Share on social, we’ll email you back an image for this at step 2 once we receive your email.
Get training, prep your route and save a space in your diary to take part on July 10th. Strava will do the hard work for us and will calculate every one’s times and distances. Fingers crossed for the good weather!
Run, recruiters, run!
