A North East law firm is leading the way with a different kind of networking event, focused on physical and mental wellbeing.
Breaking away from traditional networking events, Muckle LLP – a leading independent law firm for businesses, has developed a unique running event for its contacts, clients and friends.
Dubbed ‘Muckle Running Social’, the gathering is believed to be the first of its kind in the region and is the brainchild of senior partner and multi-marathon runner Hugh Welch.
The inaugural event drew in over 50 business people, who dashed across the region to take part in the fitness inspired get together at Swalwell Cricket Club.
The event kicked off with a short talk, a tutorial on running technique and a strength and conditioning warm-up led by fitness experts David Fairlamb and Joel Brannigan. Runners then took part in a 3k or 5k run along Derwent Walk followed by food, drinks and chat back at the clubhouse.
