Team Skyscanner to join Bupa Great Edinburgh Run 2009

If you thought all Skyscanner staff did was stand outside Edinburgh coffee shops pulling poses for the roaming Google Street Map camera cars, think again!

Several members of Skyscanner’s Edinburgh office will be taking part in the Bupa Great Edinburgh Run, which will be held on Sunday 3rd May 2009.

Team Skyscanner will be running on behalf of Disability Snowsport UK, who provide opportunities for people with a disability to participate in skiing and snowboarding, helping to improve their quality of life.

Training has already begun, with Team Skyscanner members taking to the streets of Leith in Edinburgh during lunch hour in preparation for the 10K route that will take in the city’s most famous landmarks including Edinburgh Castle, The Scott Monument, The Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace.

Gareth William, Skyscanner CEO said:

“As a Scottish company, it’s important for us to get involved with local events and The Great Edinburgh Run is an ideal way for Skyscanner to help raise money for a good cause, enjoy the great outdoors of our beautiful city, and of course get some exercise.”

Last September, Team Skyscanner helped raise money for Leukaemia Research by joining the Pedal For Scotland Cycle ride, a 55mile bike journey from Glasgow to Edinburgh.
