Team SpecialEffect nearly 200 strong!

They said it couldn’t be done! After Team SpecialEffect hit the heady heights of 125 runners taking part in the London 10K last year, there was genuine apprehension here on the part of the fundraising team as to whether we could match this impressive number in 2019, let alone go higher.

But you’ve done it! This Sunday - 21 July - over 190 runners will take to the streets of our capital wearing the blue and orange of SpecialEffect – or a games-themed costume of their choice – to raise vital funds in support of our work with disabled gamers.

This event has now been a fixture in our calendar since 2010 and has always featured a strong showing from the games industry. This year, that contingent is larger than ever, with companies including SEGA, Rocksteady, GAME/ BELONG, Bethesda, EA, Criterion, Future Games of London, Green Man Gaming, Studio Gobo, Ukie, Devolver, Playstack, Firefly Worlds, Rebellion, Splash Damage, Apple, Waste Creative, Sony London Studio, Stellar Entertainment, NSE, Big Potato Games and RKG Productions, all represented.

A team of 190+ means lots more thirsts to quench, so we’re extremely grateful to Nick Jones and everyone at Focus Oxford Risk Management for sponsoring our post-race reception. Keep an eye on social media over the weekend for 10K updates and who knows, with so many SpecialEffect runners gathering at the start line, we’ve got to be in with a chance of one of them winning it this year, right?!
