From the Organizers
“We work with over 300 charity partners, working with ACTIVE Network and ACTIVEWorks Endurance has really made it possible to work more closely with the charities. It's a one stop shop.”
Laura Miller, Commercial Partnership Manager
"ACTIVE provides an incredibly seamless integration of services. It allows us then to concentrate on one partner rather than having to work with multiple partners to acheive the elements that we need to acheive with a successful event."
