Staff run to highlight IRCT at Copenhagen relay race

We may not be the biggest fans of Spandex, but the IRCT staff can certainly get out and run.

Ten staff members (and many supporters) from the IRCT’s Secretariat office participated at the annual Copenhagen DHL Relay Race last week, joining more than 125,000 other runners in the city’s Fælledpark.

Each day, 5,000 teams of five people donned their running shorts and company shirt to race five kilometres through the park. Two teams from IRCT joined this year, racing against teams from the Royal Danish Post Office and Telia Mobile. Both groups from IRCT managed to finish in less than 2 hours 40 minutes!

Check out photos below of our teams:
