10k runners named as biggest charity team!

The British 10K has always been an event that's close to our heart. We’ve been entering a team for almost as long as we've been in existence, with the number of runners growing every year.

So what better way to celebrate our 10th anniversary than attempting to muster one hundred of the game industry’s finest athletes to complete under the SpecialEffect flag? It was an ambitious target, but thanks to the amazing enthusiasm of our supporters, we made it to ‘a ton’ with just days to spare before the race.

And what a day it was! With the sun beating down on central London, our brave band of costumed heroes did us proud, not only raising an incredible £22,000 but also (get this) claiming the official ‘Biggest Charity Team’ award from Virgin Sport, the organisers of the race.

A huge thanks to everyone who ran, cheered and sponsored to make this all possible – a fantastic achievement all round!

Anyone inspired to dust off their trainers and run for Team SpecialEffect should check out our events page for more info on future races and challenges.
