940 property professionals ran 5K, 10K and 15K to support LandAid’s mission to end youth homelessness.
The event was sponsored by headline sponsors Allsop. 887 of these participants joined LandAid and the property industry in person at The Regent’s Park, with 53 choosing to join the race virtually.
After two years of virtual runs, LandAid was proud to see the industry come back together again to take on the LandAid 10K in The Regents Park. Competition was fierce as always, with a battle to finish in fastest place.
The winners of the fastest run awards were; Jessica Gale of London Wall who won the Fastest 10K female with a time of 44:02 minutes, Grace Waterworth of British Land who won Fastest 5K female with a time of 22:43 minutes and Isabel Bazett of Make Architects who won Fastest 15K female with a time of 1:07:40.
Charlie Stoneham of Savills won the Fastest 5K male award with a time of 17:35 and Oliver Werby of SEGRO won the Fastest 15K male award with a time of 59:07 minutes. The LandAid 10K saw a double winner in Matt Grant, Senior Director of Anstey Horne who won both the Fastest CEO and Fastest 10K male awards with a time of 35:09 minutes. The Fastest Team award also went to Savills 1 with an astonishing quick time of 3:02:09 between four runners.
The LandAid 10K was not just an opportunity for sporty competition, but all participants also did their bit to fundraise to support youth homelessness charities across the UK.
The LandAid 10K’s Top Individual Fundraiser went to Michael Stynes of Howard de Walden who raised an incredible £2,235.12 to end youth homelessness. Howard de Walden also had a double whammy, winning the Top Fundraising Team award with a total of £6,220.12 raised for LandAid.
A special award, the Fun Runners award, was given to Aimme Brooks of One YMCA, a LandAid grant recipient. Aimee was a highlight of the whole day, arriving to The Regent’s Park and competing in the race dressed as an avocado!
Paul Morrish, LandAid Chief Executive says: LandAid has been astounded by the support and enthusiasm of the real estate industry this year. Not only have they stood up to provide support to local youth homelessness charities through the pandemic and beyond, but they also have raised vital funds by running for LandAid.
‘Youth homelessness hasn’t stopped, and we need to provide long term, safe, secure and affordable accommodation for the thousands of young people across the country who need it. LandAid remains committed to its mission to end youth homelessness, but it is only by working with the industry that we can achieve this. So, thank you to all who took part, together we can end youth homelessness.’
Scott Tyler, Senior Partner at Allsop says: ‘The response from the property industry to LandAid’s latest 10K initiative has been overwhelming and humbling, once again demonstrating the willingness of people and businesses in our sector to give back and help those in challenging circumstances. We were honoured to have supported the LandAid team as sponsor and look forward to continuing to support this deserving charity in the future together with our industry peers.’
