We’ve had an exciting few months here at Stephenson Group! Everyone has got involved, and some of the team have achieved greatness with their escapades over the course of the Summer so far. We thought we’d share a few of the reasons why we’ve had a Sporting Summer 2016.
Summer kicked off to an exciting start with the Gung Ho Fun Run in May. With an inflatable obstacle course consisting of slides, ball pits and even foam, the race spans 5km (but not as you know it!). We had quite a lot of employees take part in this local run and there has already been talk of attending next year as well!
A few of us took part in the Tough Mudder at the start of the month, this endurance test is anything but a ‘fun run’. Although most of our employees taking part in this challenge had never attempted it before, there were still a few (crazy) veterans completing the race for their second and third times. Tough Mudder is a 13 mile run with difficult obstacles to be completed, including 12 foot walls, ice cold water pits and a 10,000 volt electric run to the finish line.
Needless to say, there has been very little talk of returning next year…
Now, this is more our (and probably your) kind of sport!
We are currently running a social media competition to try and track down the best soap crafters around the world. We want to find one reigning champion over handmade soap, as voted for by the public. So far, we have had over 50 entries, with a combined total of 1,500 votes (totals as of 17th Aug, 13:15pm). If you think you have what it takes to become the first ever Stephenson Soap Champion, then all you need to do is upload a picture of your best work here. Then encourage all your friends and family to vote for you to ensure you receive the most votes!
