Taylor&Emmet challengers get set for Dronfield 10K

A group of 16 sporty staff from Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP are limbering up for this weekend’s Dronfield 10K, bringing to a close an eight-week lifestyle challenge run by the firm. 

Sunday’s ten-kilometre road race around Dronfield is the culmination of the solicitors’ ‘couch to 10K’ initiative, which aimed to encourage physical and mental wellbeing though exercise. 

Taylor&Emmet’s team comprises runners of varying abilities, all of whom embraced the firm’s latest lifestyle challenge, launched in January. Participants were set weekly fitness goals that promoted walking and running to slowly build up stamina. They earned points for completing the planned activities and bonus points for additional wellness tasks. The winner will be announced after Sunday’s race. 

Taylor&Emmet has an office in Dronfield and has sponsored the town’s annual 10K and Fun Run since 2018. The annual event is organised to raise funds for the 7th Dronfield Scouts and returns to its original format this year, after being held virtually in 2021 for the first time in its 27-year history. 

Sharna Poxon, Taylor&Emmet’s head of human resources and Dronfield 10K participant, said:

“We have submitted a Dronfield 10K team every year since our association with the event began and my colleagues and I are really looking forward to lining up alongside the hundreds of runners it attracts this weekend. The comradery and crowd support were much missed last year.

“Our lifestyle challenge has been a great way to help colleagues improve their physical fitness and general wellbeing through the dark winter months. We have motivated each other towards a common goal and provided support to those who doubted their ability. Everyone has been keeping a close eye on the league table and I’ve no doubt they will be going all out this week to earn the last few points that are up for grabs!”
