THE GREAT (BUT WET) CITY RACE

THOUSANDS of runners were out in force in the City yesterday despite the rain, participating in Standard Chartered’s Great City Race 2012.

With just two weeks to go before the Olympics, the Square Mile enjoyed its own demonstration of sporting prowess as office workers took to the steets to run 5k in support of Standard Chartered’s designated charity Seeing is Believing. Several of the emerging market bank’s senior management joined in the race.
