Two local businesses show continued support for BHGE 10K running festival


Local businesses, Dundas Consultants and Apollo, have shown their continued support to the BHGE 10K Running Festival by sponsoring the running festival for another year.

Sport Aberdeen and title sponsor Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) are delighted to welcome both companies back to the sponsor line up for 2019.

Dundas Consultants have supported the event since 2014 and Apollo Offshore Engineering, since 2016.

Sport Aberdeen’s Director of Healthy and Active Communities, Keith Gerrard, said:

“We are delighted to welcome back recurring sponsors Dundas and Apollo for 2019, joining other local organisations to back the event and help raise money for our ten affiliated charities.

As well as sponsoring the BHGE 10K Running Festival and Family Fun Run, employees from Apollo and Dundas Consultants will demonstrate their sporting prowess with teams taking part in 2019’s Corporate Team Challenge.

Richard Woodhouse, Director at Dundas Consultants, said:

It’s terrific to see so many people participating in sport at the BHGE 10k. It always feels like such a positive experience for everyone there either through that sense of personal achievement at taking part or for many because they’re raising money for charities that are important to them. I hope Dundas will continue our involvement for years to come.”

Jonathan White, Business Development Director at Apollo added:

“Apollo look forward to not only sponsoring but also participating in this important sporting event for Aberdeen. We are proud to have supported the running festival for a number of years and have great fun as a company entering runners and raising money for charity!”

With the 10 weeks to 10K training programme now in full swing and just six weeks to go until race day, race organiser Sport Aberdeen and title sponsor Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) are urging people to sign up for the race in good time to avoid disappointment. Over half the spaces have already been filled, but there is still time to secure your place.
