Over 1,000 property professionals from around the country took part in a charity run on Sunday to raise £20,000 for charity.

The annual JLL Property 5k run is held in Regent’s Park, London and raises money for Starlight, JLL’s charity, which grants wishes to children with serious and terminal illness in the UK.

Andrew Mercer, of Legal & General, was the fastest runner overall for the third consecutive year, completing the race in just 16 minutes, 30 seconds.

Chief Executive of JLL UK, Guy Grainger, says: “It’s fantastic to see so many colleagues taking part in this healthy initiative which has raised significant funds for our charity partner, Starlight.

“Our people and our communities are two areas that we’re really committed to supporting through our sustainability programme Building for Tomorrow, and it’s events like this which really bring that programme to life.”1

JLL’s Alan Silvester won the men’s under-40 race, finishing in 16 minutes, 54 seconds and Amy Bryant, of Gerald Eve, won the women’s under-40 category, completing the race in 20 minutes, 5 seconds.

The overall winner, Andrew Mercer, also won the men’s over-40 race and Emma Huepfl, from JCRA Laxfield, came first in the women’s over-40 category, finishing in 20 minutes, 3 seconds.
