Method Functional Safety helped create the Pirton Boxing Day Run in 2002 and has been the main sponsor ever since.
Now in its 18th year, we continue to be involved in this amazing community running event. We have enjoyed watching it grow, initially by getting the locals into running, and then by becoming a boxing day feature on the local running calendar. The event now raises money for the local school.
We always sponsor the event and the website sits on the back of this website (www.boxingdayrun.co.uk). This year our contribution has been to bring technology to the event to allow us to run it virtually. We have been able to put sensors around the course which detect when people run past them. This means everyone entered can run the route whenever they want (probably dictated by how full they feel). We will miss the crowds but at least we are out there.
Friendly, happy events like this remind us why we all work so hard throughout the year - and why communities are so important. We would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
If you need help with Functional Safety during this period please reach out. We are available if you need us. Otherwise we hope to see you in 2021.
