A 200 Mile International Relay Race?
Bimeda colleagues from around the world complete a virtual Californian relay from their own country!
Rather than holding the Bimeda team back, this new way of running the race actually served to inspire them, and colleagues from all over the world decided to get involved! Now that the race was 'virtual' there were no geographic barriers to taking part and we saw 30 Bimeda participants from Canada, Brazil, the USA, and Ireland get involved.
And worry not – everyone was sure to maintain a minimum 2 metre distance from people they passed along the way, and all participants ensured that they were complying with local government rules, such as remaining within 2km of their homes for those living in the Republic of Ireland.
The race took an entire weekend to complete and was a huge success. After finishing, the Bimeda team enjoyed a much-deserved beer together via Zoom! Well done to all involved for finding ways to continue to work together even when we must stay apart.
