The annual Standard Chartered Great City Race took place again this summer, starting from the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC).  An absolutely barmy 28 degree heat awaited the 24 eager, but slightly jittery, Charles Stanley runners who had lined up to do their part for charity and clinch the bragging rights to the quickest time around the 5km city course.

Some 6000 runners participated in this year’s race and given the sheer numbers put out by much larger firms, Charles Stanley performed admirably. Mark Fulton was the first CS runner home (228th Male and 240th overall) in a time of 19:17, breaking the much vaunted sub-20 barrier along with Ed Clark (19:56). Emily King was the first female CS runner (314th Female) across the line in a time of 25:01, very closely followed by Kate Hogan who ran it in 25:06.

Our Men’s 1st Team (consisting of Mark Fulton, Ed Clark, Ben Gilmore & Lewis Kuhler) improved some 40 positions on the previous year and came a very impressive 57th in the team category (pipping rival JM Finn by some 31 places).

Our Female 1st team (Emily King, Kate Hogan, Emma Foden-Pattinson & Bridie Macky,) also impressively came 57th (improving 50 places from 2017) and our First Mixed Team (Fulton, Clark, King & Hogan) came 103rd  in their respective category.

A very well organised event and special mention must go to Robert Brooke for his efforts in coordinating all of Charles Stanley’s runners. The evening was capped off with some much needed hydration and nibbles in the Kings Arms near our Bishopsgate office.
