Join the Drives & Controls road race!

Drives & Controls has joined forces with Danfoss Motion Controls to organise a relay road race for teams from the drives and automation industry. The event, taking place in Stone, Staffordshire on Sunday 25 June, is open to teams of five members, each of whom will run 2km of the 10km distance. For serious runners, the event takes places under UK athletics rules on a measured course, and is a NSRRA event.

The aim is to revive the spirit of the Mountain Marathon events that Drives & Controls used to organise in Wales several years ago.

"I really feel the loss of the old Mountain Marathon where I used to meet up with so many people from the industry in a non-business environment," says Danfoss` sales director, Tony Pickering, who is a keen tri-athlete. "This race will fill a much-needed gap and I look forward to meeting up with many of my old friends from the industry."

The entry fee per team is £15, which will go to a local school. For more details and an entry form please conact Eddie Kirk at
