ENGIE announced as official partner of the Great Run Series

11 April 2019

Leading energy and services group, ENGIE will become an official Partner of the Great Run Series in 2019.

Great Run is the UK’s biggest series of mass participation running events, with over 230,000 people taking part each year, including at the iconic Simplyhealth Great North Run, the world’s biggest half marathon.

ENGIE is focused on three key activities: production and supply of energy, facilities management and regeneration. Its 17,000 employees combine these capabilities for the benefit of businesses and communities throughout the UK.

ENGIE will also become title sponsor of the Business Challenge. This is a great opportunity for organisations to encourage a healthy outlook for staff, engage in team building and support charity fundraising.

The ENGIE Business Challenge will also encourage some friendly sporting competition amongst businesses in key locations across the series. The focus of ENGIE’s partnership will be on supporting runners and engaging local communities.

Wilfrid Petrie, Chief Executive Officer at ENGIE UK & Ireland, commented: “We are pleased to be announcing our partnership with the Great Run Series, strengthening our commitment to supporting the many communities we serve across the UK.

"As a business, we are passionate about making a difference to people’s lives - from transforming neighbourhoods to become more vibrant and sustainable, to helping individuals, businesses and communities to embrace a greener, lower carbon future.”

Jen Isaac, Partnerships Director at the Great Run Company, said: “We are delighted to have ENGIE on board as our new Energy Partner and as title sponsor of the Business Challenge.

“Like us, ENGIE believes people should be proud of, and be able to celebrate, their communities, we're looking forward to working with them to engage an even wider audience in our events.”

The partnership will kick off at the Simplyhealth Great Stirling Run on Sunday 28 April.
