Places for People Team in training

Sun 04 Mar 2012

The Places for People team for the Geoffrey Leaver Corporate Relay Challenge are hoping to hit the heights in the big business-against-business race planned for the day of the MK Marathon (29th April), and they have been getting some help from people who know how to get to the top.  

Coach Mike New and Ishmail Fontaine from the MK Lions basketball team have been putting them through their paces at the company’s Brooklands development with stretching and running exercises through the meadows and along  the  award winning Brooklands ridge. 

“We’ve got a  great relationship with the Lions and we’re delighted they’ve been giving us a boost with our training programme” said project director Simon Elcock. “Win or lose we are all having tremendous fun getting ready for the Challenge and looking forward to participating in what promises to be a  great day in the Milton Keynes corporate calendar, not to mention raising money for local worthwhile charities.”
