Miles in March challenge returns
Sintons is renewing its commitment to promoting health and wellbeing among its people, while also supporting team-building, through the return of its Miles in March challenge.
The challenge encourages people across the business to rack up as many miles as possible across the month of March through activities including running, cycling, walking or swimming.
Teams of four people have been formed so participants’ mile totals will be added together, with one team emerging victorious at the end of the month.
A number of prizes will be awarded, including for overall winners, best team average, top walkers, top cyclists and top runners.
Last year, Sintons’ staff accrued 7,421 miles during March, with hopes this can be beaten for 2022.
Miles in March is an annual initiative run by Sintons, and forms part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to promoting health and wellbeing of its staff, with exercise and its related health benefits being a key part of that.
Staff from across the firm have eagerly taken on the challenge.
Trainee Solicitor and keen athlete Emily Richardson said: “I’m doing it as a personal challenge and also to encourage me to get the gym membership I’ve been putting off for months!
“I want to get involved to see if I can push myself and get as many miles as I can for my team.”
Fellow trainee solicitor and fitness fanatic Ben McMurdo added: “I am doing Miles in March to test my capabilities for swimming, running and cycling – almost like triathlon prep.
“It is also a great opportunity to meet other members of the firm through the random draw and develop those professional relationships, whilst working as a team and spurring each other on.”
Claire Atkins, head of people services at Sintons, said: “The health and wellbeing of our team is at the heart of everything we do and we continually look for opportunities to promote this.
“Miles in March is a way of encouraging our people to get active, which has both physical and mental benefits, while also promoting teamwork and building the strong relationships we enjoy in the workplace – as well as encouraging a bit of healthy competition!
“We’ve had a fantastic response from our teams and wish them well in their personal and team-wide challenges.”
