Members of the ‘Mad Trackers’ team walked and ran as much as possible throughout September. The team managed to cover a total of 428 miles, the equivalent of from the office headquarters in Edinburgh all the way past London to Brighton.

Company founder and CTO Gert Riemersma commented. “It was a welcome challenge and distraction from the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the constantly changing guidelines that everyone had to deal with and the limitations of not being able to meet up to run together due to Covid restrictions, it was a excellent way at building team spirit. This event was a great opportunity to become much fitter during September. I certainly feel better for all the miles I managed to cover. Everyone really got involved in the event and surpassed our targets of both mileage and money raised. Thanks to all those that supported us.”
