With the London leg of the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge set for the 4th and 5th July 2018, we’ve developed a reputation as one of the UK’s leading suppliers for corporate running vests and t-shirts for participants.
A wide range of corporate companies come to Scimitar for running, cycling and triathlon kit for events throughout the year. We are, after all, the 2017 Men’s Running Magazine Brand of the Year! With that in mind, we wanted to highlight four key UK events taking place in 2018 for corporate running teams, from individual entrants up to teams of ten.
