1087 km in 3 days: Admitad launched a running challenge together with Nike Run Club
Quarantine has made us less active and has left us without team events. But coronavirus cannot beat Admitad team spirit! From August 1 to 15 our employees are participating in various activities, including Nike Run Club challenge.
“Despite working remotely, we try to stick together and involve employees in various initiatives. The Nike challenge is an opportunity to engage all Admitad offices in one common and interesting activity. We are in different time zones but we run the same challenge, compete, and overcome ourselves. I suppose we will be able to unite our international team even more during these two weeks, ” said Elizaveta Orlova, Global HR Director at Admitad.
From August 1st to 15th, participants will have to run a minimum of 42 km. This way they will be able to take part in a training session with a professional Nike trainer. For 5 runners, who overcome the longest distances, Admitad prepared certificates from 100 to 200 dollars which can be spent in Nike.
From the very beginning our Admitad team was actively involved in the game: 101 participants immediately accepted the challenge, only 3 days after the start the total number of km exceeded 1000, and 8 runners have already covered the distance of 42 km.
“I love competitions and I was very happy to be the first one. I didn’t even expect that I have such stamina and energy reserves,” said Himani Singh, Executive Client — Servicing at Admitad India, who was the fastest in reaching 42km.
“I never thought I could run this much. Thank you, Admitad and Nike for the motivation,” Anastasia Yershova, Legal Adviser at Admitad, shared her emotions after the run.
“I have run 38 km in the last 24 hours. This is a very cool challenge, and I suggest that we continue with this kind of initiative. Running together with colleagues gives you energy and burns your will to win, “ said Sergey Kropotov, Business Development Manager at Admitad Projects.
It is proven that running boosts your mood and brain power. Busy with a new campaign? Dealing with stress? Losing your motivation? Take a pair of running shoes and let’s go!
