runners compete in WIKA relay marathon
A team of keen runners from VEGA UK went to Germany as one of
4 UK entries to compete in the WIKA relay marathon on July 26th
with over 160 teams involved.
Each team of 7 runners completed a 6km (3.75m) cross country
course, up hill and down dale. This year the temperature was
the biggest challenge, it got up to 40°C and many competitors
certainly felt the heat! As the first time of competition for
VEGA UK, whilst the overall result wasn't what they hoped for,
the fund raising was superb - with staff, family and friends
donating over £600.
They certainly hope to return and improve on it next year! Fellow
competitors, JWF Instrumentation in Glasgow, who were the fastest
of the UK representatives, have agreed to match the amount raised
for the national Anthony Nolan Trust and a local children's hospice
So, following a very enjoyable weekend, the VEGA UK team would
like to thank all the organisers at WIKA, colleagues in VEGA
Germany, fellow competitors and donators for all their help in
making the event happen, support and raising money for Charity.
