The Investment Week team are strapping on their running shoes to support the 2020 Standard Chartered Great City Race in aid of Futuremakers.
Investment Week, the leading media brand for the UK investment industry, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The milestone year for the brand has seen a programme of face-to-face and virtual events, a commemorative edition of the magazine, as well as a series of special features, interviews, social media content and videos.
The brand’s team will continue the celebrations with a squad of 25 runners taking part in the 2020 City Race on July 21, including CEO Jonathon Whiteley, managing director Kevin Sinclair and marketing director Sophie Eke, who are all keen runners.
The 5K race traditionally takes place around the City of London in July, but this year’s event will take in a different format: entrants can run from home, work or wherever they are, taking on the 5K at whatever time they choose, on July 21.
The official race beneficiary for the Standard Chartered Great City Race is Futuremakers, a global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion for young people in our communities.
“We are delighted that the City Race is still going ahead albeit in a different format to usual. As a business we have had to rework many of our own event models in light of Covid19 so we are pleased to be able to continue to support this major industry event, along with a great cause like Futuremakers,” said Sophie Eke, marketing director at Incisive Media.
The Investment Week team will be joined by runners from Teamspirit, the award-winning full-service agency, as our official communications partner for the anniversary. Teamspirit also celebrate 25 years of working with the financial services industry in 2020.
