Premier Pensions' actuarial team were among the 15,699 runners taking part in this year's British 10k London Run on 14 July. Apart from the minority of elite runners who finish the race before the masses cross the start-line on Piccadilly, this event is widely regarded as a fun-run in aid of UK charities. Although the sunshine was perfect for the spectators who lined the route, the blistering conditions swiftly dispelled any illusions of fun for the runners. The route included some of the City's iconic buildings and finished between two London buses parked in Whitehall. Although Premier's highly tuned athletes failed to meet the qualifying time for the Rio Olympics, the team did succeed in raising over £3,000 for four different charities. After the race, the team met up for well-deserved refreshments.
