Running is probably the most popular sport at our company, and EY actively supports runners. We have an EY Team for every big and small marathon and work closely with the I Love Running club.
One of our favorite events is the Colorful Run in July – 5 km of fun and a “colorful” final when everyone throws dry paint at each other.
The more serious challenge, on the other hand, is the long Autumn Marathon, when EY employees run in support of a charity (DownSide Up, the Amur Tiger Fund, etc). We run in yellow colors and, after reaching the finishing line, we meet for a cup of tea and a chocolate energy bar in our corporate tent with yellow balloons and a support team.
Interesting fact: EY Managing Partner for the CIS Joe Watt is a big fan of running – he takes part in marathons every year and has run as long as 41.1 km!
