The first of our 5K Summer Series events got off to a flying start with runners of all levels competing in the first of the series live and interactive race. Race participants got to experience the thrill and excitement of a real race all via the Teem Up social running platform.

The race was enhanced with live commentary provided by Matt Seddon, national athlete and founder of The Sunday Plodcast. Matt, an experienced runner himself, gave the runners a boost of motivation - regularly calling out race stats and providing runners with a live leaderboard – which certainly spurred many of the runners on and secured several a PB!

After the race, winner Banksy reflected, “There was a reason I ran well, it felt like a proper race and thanks to the commentary, I knew I had people on my tail.”

At a time when runners haven’t been able to participate in regular races the Teem Up 5K Summer Series provides a shot of motivation that so many runners need right now. Feedback from the race has been fantastic with other runners such as Paul, from Southend-On-Sea commenting “The race was good with encouragement throughout, this definitely pushed me harder than I would have done and the experience was great.”

The 5K Summer Series runs every Wednesday throughout July. We welcome runners of all levels and abilities to take part. You can find all the details below on how to download the app and get involved in our 2nd race of the series.

It’s safe to say that the events of the past year caught us all off guard. Businesses had to adapt at record pace to facilitate working from home, with the majority resorting to online methods to keep in touch with their employees.

The pandemic has undoubtedly re-shaped the way we do business. Many businesses and large corporations are now seeing the value in allowing employees to work from home with hybrid working looking set to become the new normal. But what can businesses do to maintain a close connection with their employees? Does remote working have to mean disconnection?

With zoom quiz nights on the decline and face to face meetings few and far between, what options are there for business leaders to connect, motivate and promote workplace wellbeing to their employees?

Truthfully, there probably aren’t many activities that wouldn’t be met with a seen it all before unenthused look.

That’s where Teem Up can help, we’ve launched our corporate race packages aimed at bringing colleagues from all over the world together for a virtual race. The race can be any length 5K, 10K, 20k… and participants can walk, run or cycle the event! We want all participants to feel included, motivated and most importantly, connected.

The events can be hosted at a time to suit you, midweek, Friday lunchtime or at the weekend so that families can get involved too. You can also add live race commentary to your package to kick up the level of excitement and drum up some healthy competition!

It all about coming together when you can’t actually be together, the events are fun, engaging and a great way to promote workplace wellbeing.
