Hundreds take part in business relay
Heavy rain did not prevent businesses from all over the Garden Route to come in their masses in support of the Grant Thornton business relay. The 17th annual Grant Thornton business relay took place at 72 York Street on Wednesday 25 October.
As many as 110 teams of six members each competed in the walk or the run, both of which were 2km.
Director of Grant Thornton, Stef Lategan, says the business relay is an opportunity for employees of the businesses to interact. "The occasion is for businesses to come together, socialise, network and build solid and fruitful relationships."
Lancewood Men won the men's running, Mosselbaai Volkswagen Girls were the female relay winners, with Titian winning the mixed relay. Media sponsors
