Our colleagues from the CRA have run the Metlife race.

El Corte Inglés has sponsored the Metlife 15 km race held on Sunday 13 March in Madrid.

The Metlife race, more supportive than ever, was aimed at supporting the Ukrainian people's emergency in the face of the war situation in which they find themselves and to be able to channel aid, hoping that this conflict will end soon.

Our CRA colleague Jorge Ruiz Roso Montes was the winner of a double bib to participate in the Metlife 15-kilometer race sponsored by El Corte Inglés, which held a bib raffle among the employees who decided to try their luck.

Jorge teamed up with Ángel Luis Jiménez Rocha, another one of our technicians at SICOR AlarmsThey were both supported by other members of the team who accompanied them throughout the tour, moving around in transport to applaud them at different points in the capital.

We asked them a few questions to motivate the rest of the team:

How did you get the bib for the Metlife race?

We saw it in the employee portal and signed up for the draw for the double bib for the Metlife race. In the end the winner was Jorge, but he offered his second bib to Ángel Luis since he is the most sporty of the team.

How long did it take you to prepare for the 15 km race? 

10 days before the race we were informed that we had won the bibs and with the work we were able to train just 3 days.

Are you a regular athlete? 

Some more than others, lately we are going out to do sports with several people from the office, some of us like cycling more, others like running... We are supporting each other to improve our physical shape, Ángel Luis has been fundamental to promote these sports meetings in the department.

What mark have you achieved? 

*The important thing is that we finished the race, with so little preparation it is already an achievement and we were waiting for each other to cross the finish line at the same time.

Anything you would like to highlight? 

Drawings happen, we didn't know anyone even if internally we had won one of these prizes and this time we were the lucky ones!

Congratulations, we look forward to seeing you in the next edition of the challenge!!!
