Campaign Sprintathon: charity race is in aid of Stand Up To Cancer

Campaign Sprintathon, which promises to find fastest in adland, is just a month away.

More than 50 teams, including from Adam & Eve/DDB, Facebook, Manning Gottlieb OMD, MediaCom, Mother and Saatchi & Saatchi, have signed up to take part in the Campaign Sprintathon.

The charity race, in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, calls for 105 agencies, media owners, publishers and trade bodies to run a combined marathon distance in less than two hours.

Teams of four will go head to head, running a 400m lap to collectively smash the two-hour marathon time on Thursday 25 July.

In a humorous spot created by Saatchi & Saatchi, Campaign’s global editor-in-chief, Claire Beale, urged adland to rise to the challenge, saying: "Get involved or get called out."

A Campaign team will take part in the race, which was founded by Direct Line’s marketing director, Mark Evans, in 2016. It will take place at the London Stadium community track. To sign up to take part, click here.
