Once again, a team from G. H. Financials' London office participated in the J. P. Morgan Challenge – an international series of races in 14 cities across the world developed to celebrate corporate teamwork, camaraderie and community as well as raise funds for good causes.
Held over two days, 5-6 July 2017 on a challenging 5.6 km course through Battersea Park, the event attracted a record turnout, with around 30,000 runners completing the challenge over the two days.
G. H. Financials entered a team of 11 into the event, with Alastair Moffatt leading the challenge and finishing within minutes of the overall leader on the day, achieving a very respectable 220th place on the leaderboard.
Ben Hepden, Justin Van Wijngaarden, Adam Cooper and Shane Holdaway all beat their 2016 times, with Justin shaving over five minutes off his time from last year.
The G. H. Financial team results were:

The record attendance and capacity crowd all helped raise money for Cancer Research UK.
