Enquin wins 10k Team Challenge

Our fantastic Enquin team completed this year’s ABP Newport Wales 10k on Sunday and won the Corporate Challenge with a combined time of 3:53:53. An engraved trophy will be winging its way to our office soon. The race took place on Sunday 24 October, having been deferred from 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was an amazing effort from the team (especially with the weather) and thank you to everyone who sponsored the team. The amount raised for ‘Kicking Off Against Cancer’ (K.O.A.C) so far is £1,036.00. Further donations are welcome via the link below.  


Teams of 5 or more runners entered – with every member of the team completing the 10K and the fastest 5 times from each team were combined for the Corporate Challenge. Enquin registered the fastest overall team with 3:53:53 and picked up the Winner’s Trophy. There was stiff competition for the top slot, with corporate teams from Admiral, Envagers, Thomas Carroll, Cushman & Wakefield and Les Croupiers Running Club.

K.O.A.C was founded in 2016 with one simple aim, to help and support those that are affected by cancer. It provides people with cancer with the chance to take a break with their families and create some lasting memories.

Enquin’s Lucie Banks is co-founder and trustee of K.O.A.C. Not only did Lucie organise everyone, she also ran the race herself. A self-confessed non-runner she achieved her aim to run the whole race without stopping!  When asked about Team Enquin Lucie said;

I’m thrilled that so many of my work colleagues ran for the Charity. We had 7 members in Team Enquin, and everyone was really up for the Challenge with stiff competition for those top five times! The team are already planning the next team race.
