Hi this is feedback Friday I am giving you the opportunity to tell what you think we should be doing. I am all ears.
It’s Friday and I am really excited as we move on to event number two, however, before I get too far ahead of myself, I want to thank everyone for coming out and doing their part in making the first event an overwhelming success. The participation figures have reached a new high, you could feel the excitement in the air and the enthusiasm as the various colours and logos displayed produced a kaleidoscope. It is heartwarming to see members of the financial services sector out in their running gear in the cool evening in the ambiance of the setting sun, challenging their fellow competitors and most importantly themselves, as each push to improve on their times.
I want us to hold it together as we move forward to stage two I want to encourage teams to continue training together building the team spirit and lift the level of fitness among your peers as we make this another memorable year of competition.
The women are holding strong, as they are all closely bunched together so anyone could win. As the weeks roll along we will have to wait and see what would happen as this could open up the competition and make for a very interesting count down to the final.
The men continue to be an area that requires some encouragement and motivation as Nikosi seems to be pulling further away from the chasing pack. The expected rivalry or challenge from the young FC runner didn’t seem to materialize and fizzle into thin air. The hope is to have a more competitive showing in the male category by closing the gap…meaning the first place should not positioned two finish times ahead of the second place.
In light of the competitive nature of these events, we want to remind all participants of the true spirit of CariFin – fun, fitness and friendship.
I thank all the teams for coming out and a special mention to RBTT, RBL and First Citizens who have register over 100 participants, we are more than please for the big part you all are playing to the growth of this event and thanks to their team leaders who see the need to go out and market the event among their staff.
Thanks again and enjoy your weekend.
