Imperial Shooting Tournament - July 2017
Three cheers to Steph Yates for winning two golds and a silver at this year’s Imperial Shooting event!
This two week tournament involves thousands of participants from around the world and covers a variety shooting disciplines. It is hosted annually by the National Rifle Association at their Shooting ground in Bisley, Woking.
We are very proud of Steph, who achieved high scores in her F-Class Target Rifle discipline and even managed to win a trophy for coming first in the prestigious ‘St George’s Final, involving a combination of two shoots; 15 rounds at 600yds and 20 rounds at 900yds.
Here is the evidence…
JLL Property 5K 2016
“Bike talk” has become something of an epidemic around the Remit office over the past summer. Whether it involves reaction to Team GB’s impressive performances in the Olympic Velodrome or discussions about the new parts on Andrew and Matt’s Mountain Bikes, the day to day workings of the remit office have been filled with talk of everything cycling.
This trend has had 2 major effects…Firstly, it has spawned the recent creation of the first ever Remit Book club for the self-professed “bike haters” to discuss something other than bikes. Secondly, and more positively, it has guilt-tripped the rest of us into becoming more active, a shift in mentality which coincidentally came just in time for this year’s JLL Property 5K.
This year’s 5k marked the 8th edition of JLL’s annual event and more importantly marked the 3rd time in the past 4 years that Remit has entered a team. Unlike last year, which saw only Jonny Waller running for Remit, we were fortunate enough to have 4 Remit runners this time around! On what turned out to be a blisteringly hot Thursday afternoon in August, Jonny was joined by Miquela, Francis and Julia to form a strong team of runners and in spite of the heat, all four ran fantastic times, even if they did look truly exhausted by the end of it.
Much like last year, this year’s event received over 1,000 participants raising an astonishing £20,000 for their charity partner, “Starlight.” We love being a part of JLL’s sporting events as not only do they give us an opportunity to network with people from across the industry but also provide an active alternative to the confines of office work. Hence, we can’t wait until next year’s Triathlon and 5K. Miquela has already volunteered herself for both events and there is no doubt that many more of us will join her! Bring on 2016!

JLL Property Triathlon 2016
On Friday 1st of July, Remit once again took part in the JLL Property Triathlon at Eton Dorney Lake, in Buckinghamshire. This year marked the 10th anniversary of the popular event and due to another impressive turnout, the Triathlon managed to raise over £190,000 for JLL’s corporate charity, Starlight, bringing its 10 year total to nearly £1.7million.
As was the case in last year's event, we only had one team competing this time around. Jennifer Pigden, who had been intending to swim, cycle and run individually, suffered car trouble on the way to the event and as a result was, unfortunately, unable to compete, leaving Frank Devoy, Neil Webster and Matt Blackmore-Squires to put on a good show on Remit’s behalf. Safe to say, they did not disappoint. In cloudy conditions, team ‘REVive’ completed the course in an impressive 1 hour and 26 minutes placing them 549th out of 1569 overall.
In spite of the odd bit of sunburn, we all had a fantastic day. Special thanks must go to Frank, Neil and Matt for competing and to everyone who came to give them their support. Of course, thanks must also to JLL for again hosting an extremely successful event. We can't wait to be involved again next year!
