4 ‘PROS’ FOR RUNNING AS A TEAM

Accountability – it’s easier to run for research together when you’ve got some buddies to keep you accountable for training and running on the day.

Motivation – making the distance and crossing the finish line is so much easier with a few of your closest by your side.

Team building – the last year has been a wild ride, right?! Running in a team is a great way to build team spirit and morale within your team in a fun, supportive, and active way.

Community engagement – get to know your community a little more. Ipswich Hospital Foundation Park2Park is a great way to connect and engage with our local community.
