It was a sweltering, sticky, rumoured ‘hottest day on record’ when a small (read - elite) team of us headed over to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium for the Campaign Sprintathon 2019. An event that’s currently in its second year, spearheaded by Direct Line’s Mark Evans, it aim is to raise as much money as possible for Stand Up To Cancer, and break the world record for 'Fastest Marathon Running in 100m Sprints'.

Considering the lack of sprinting the team had done in the past…. 10+ years (?!) they put on a valiant effort, and ran a lap time of 1.03 (average was 1.02).

More importantly, the event raised a whopping £100k.
