Desco’s delight to supports the Sunderland City 10k Run 2017

Taking place on Sunday 7th May we were delighted to support the Sunderland City 10K Run once again. Now in its seventh year, approx. 4,000 runners lined up to take part in the event sponsored by Siglion, the regeneration company leading the transformation of sites around the city. The newly developed Keel Square an area recognised as a symbol of the city’s regeneration, formed an impressive start and finish point for the Run.

Running alongside household names including marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe and local Team GB marathon star Alyson Dixon, the practice was represented by 14 team members from our engineering team, all looking to beat their personal best. Well done to Neil Crowe, Jon Parker, Ryan Tough, Shaun Richardson, Keith Ketchley, Marco Ambelez, Paul Skipper, Mark McNab, Gavin Loy, Kevin Grafton, Abul Lais, Chris Colling, Derek Bond and Jordan Trueman.

Desco Board Director Neil Crowe who led the Desco Team said “Sunderland is our Head Office and we’re delighted to be able to support the Sunderland City 10K Run which is growing as an event every year. Whilst there’s some healthy competition amongst the team, its great fun and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The Team are already in training for next year.”
