Determined charitable souls: STA meet in Battersea Park

Despite Thursday 9th July 2015 being the first complete London underground strike in 13 years, STA runners weren’t daunted (though numbers slightly depleted) as they ran for charity at the annual JP Morgan fun run. Setting up team HQ at the Prince Albert pub garden, this was certainly not your typical financial gurus’ usual haunt.

J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge

Organised by STA executive committee member Tom Hicks MSTA and chairman Axel Rudolph FSTA, with vice chairman Charles Newsome MSTA one of the runners and Mark Tennyson d’Eyncourt FSTA manning the fort (built of rucksacks), the committee were out in force.

Told to strip and don fetching STA T-shirts, they obediently complied and posed to have their picture taken at the first ever STA event of its type. Superbly organised – and the weather couldn’t have been nicer – they set off in batches based on their own estimates of time to complete the 5.6 kilometre circuit. We are pleased to announce that there were no drop outs and no injuries.

At the other side of town ex-BoE’s Andrew Sentance was Tweeting: ‘Stan Chartered are sponsoring road race leading to City road closures & transport disruption on tube strike day. Doh! I don’t believe it!’ – which immediately reminded me of Victor Meldrew. Bah humbug, we STA members are made of sterner stuff.

A lovely and challenging evening was had by all. I think we should seriously consider more team building exercises and outdoor events – so long as they are inclusive and light-hearted.
