TRES staff are in great shape02/2019
On Sunday, 16 December 2018, a mixed group of 13 runners/employees of the TRES group took part in the 3rd edition of the “Santander Cursa de les Empreses” in Barcelona, competing in the 5K and 10K races.
The event was held in the vicinity of the Fira Barcelona Gran Vía facility, and was a festive event for everyone. With the motto “Get out of the office... and run”, the event intends to promote teamwork and healthy lifestyle habits among workers in the city’s companies. Altogether, 3,000 runners and 400 companies participated. Martín Fiz, #123acorrer ambassador of Banco Santander and distinguished athlete on the Spanish scene, winner of 8 gold medals in the marathon, participated in the Individual Executive event (requiring him to run in a suit and trainers). At 55 years of age, he came in first in the Executive event (32’58”/10K) and third in the overall classification.
With regard to the TRES participants, all 13 employees registered successfully finished their respective events, in which some smashed the clock, while other were just happy to finish.
Ever since its first edition, the “Santander Cursa de les Empreses” has shown its charitable commitment through its Healthiest Company award. This award donates €1 from the registration fee of each participant to the company with the largest number of workers to cross the finish line. The winning company decides the social cause that will receive this money.
In addition, in collaboration with the Barcelona Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Welfare Project, a gift collection point was set up at the event to benefit those at risk of social exclusion. All participants could drop off their gifts at the charity tent, either when they came to pick up their bibs or on the day of the race.
