PACL wanted help to deliver their 5K Your Way project, a workplace health initiative which supports and trains public sector employees to run, walk or jog 5K at a local event.

What did we do?

We managed the project from start to finish. This involved bringing seven local authorities together to establish the project’s direction and support them in their delivery of it. We also sourced online entry and timing systems for the event, as well as managing the event on the day.

What was the result of our work?

The event saw a 55% increase in entrants over previous events. 91% of participants said they wanted to enter next year and that taking part had increased their physical activity levels. Follow-up also showed high levels of satisfaction from partners.

“The team at Press Red have provided an excellent service across three diverse projects which has delivered expert, responsive and cost-effective support for the Partnership when we most needed it. Shona, Scott and Rob have been consistently flexible, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and professional in their approach. They have been happy to explore challenges with us - in its self a useful input - whether or not they will be working for us, and I have had no hesitation in asking them to represent the Partnership in discussions with our Board members and key partners. They understand the complexities of our sector and the national and local context and as such I would have no hesitation in recommending them to colleagues.”
