Check out some of the great pics we captured at our official launch, bringing the Grant Thornton Corporate 5k Team Challenge to Cork for the second year in a row. Building on from the resounding success of last year’s event, the 2016 edition will take place on the evening of Wednesday 29 June at 8:15pm starting outside Grant Thornton’s offices on South Mall.
For Olive Loughnane, who was recently upgraded retrospectively to world gold in the 20km race walk from Berlin 2009, the Grant Thornton Corporate 5k Team Challenge in Cork is a journey that has gone full circle. "I'm looking forward to going full circle and taking part in the Grant Thornton Corporate 5k Team Challenge in Cork on June 29th," said Loughnane. "I started out in athletics just by participating before going on to compete at the highest level on the world stage. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the Grant Thornton 5k is something I'm looking forward to and being part of a team with my work mates in the Central Statistics Office. It's a great opportunity for people in the work place to bond in a healthy and fun way."
