Over 150 runners gathered at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London on 23 May to complete the inaugural FFK 10k run, with 101 running the two-laps of the course for the full 10k, and a further 56 running once round for 5k.
Teams and individuals representing all sections of the futures industry, including exchanges, brokers, vendors, trading firms and trade associations, participated in the friendly, and in some cases competitive, event.
The winner of the men's 10k race, and overall winner, was Ian Firla from OSTC, who completed the race in an impressive 37:12 minutes. Leading the pack for the women was Ellie Moffatt, from Mazars and Leadership Through Sport and Business, who finished in an equally impressive 40:16.
The 5k race was won by Sam Harry, from JDX, with a time of 20:16, while his JDX team mate Alexa Carter won the women's race in 22.12 minutes.
A great time was had by all and FFK trustees, a number of whom also completed the run, would like to thank all the sponsors who made this event possible: Gold sponsors - Calyposo and ION; Silver sponsors - Cinnober, Fidessa, GH Financials, OSTC and RJ O'Brien; Bronze sponsors - FOW, Illuminate, Kite and KRM22; and Supporters - Cult Wines, FIA and John Lothian News.
This is set to be an annual event and we look forward to seeing all the runners, and more, again next year!
