On your marks, get set, go!
On June 18, 2017 Crosul Companiilor, the national running circuit dedicated to companies will stop once more, for the 6th year in a row in Oradea. Runners of all ages from companies in Bihor county, Romania, are invited to participate in one of the two challenges, the individual race or the team race. Your Fun Studio is happy to be once again the local organising partner for Runners Club at this event and shares out of their experience a few tips and tricks for team captains.
The running distance of maximum six kilometres is accessible to all runners, from beginners who just start out in road running to those accustomed to sport competitions and who will most likely run to win, rather than just to be a part of the event. So do make sure you register your colleagues, even those who aren’t that sporty, because this event is for them! It was designed to inspire people who do not necessary practice any sport, to start running, with a great motivation in front of them – finishing a 6 k race, either running or walking, in the company of their friends and colleagues, and having their families cheer for them. What a great way to start running!
Crosul Companiilor sets an emphasis on teams and aims to bring its contribution in building them outside the office. That is why, the three runners of every running team, be it women only, men only or mixed will have to start the race, run together and finish the race together. Easy, isn’t it? Well, there is a trick! Since every runner has its own ideal pace, synchronising them can be quite a challenge, especially if the three work colleagues have not ran together yet.
That is why we recommend all participants from last years as well as to those who will sign up for the first time at the races to start a training program. It is still early, the event will take place four months from now, however planning and acting for great results starts well in advance, as last year’s male winning team, Altex Romania – Media Galaxy composed of three competitors from the sales and management department told us: “We have trained for three months in a row, three times a week to get the times and to make sure we stand on the podium.”
So whether your team will be running for a team best time, whether they run just for fun, choosing the members of each team, training and competing together will be challenges in their own ways, great occasions actually for strengthening a team.
As team captains, prepare your lists of competitors among your colleagues and encourage them to participate at Crosul Companiilor Oradea on June 18, 2017. Apart from the excitement and the entertainment at the event, this team building outside the working hours will show its benefits in a matter of weeks. But not only in terms of running times as in terms of collaboration and understanding between your team members. So if you are leading the HR department or any other department and think about original ways of growing your team interaction and collaboration, contact us for details at the dedicated event e-mail oradea [@] crosulcompaniilor.ro , call +40 730 091 232 or do follow our newsletter for announcements about the start of registrations on www.crosulcompaniilor.ro.
