My Story

We intend to ‘travel’ to our furthest-away client which happens to be Falklands Legal located in the Falkland Islands from the 6th to the 27th of September. As our head office is based in Manchester, the total distance between the start and end points is 7,940 miles. Using a mixture of exercise bikes, rowing machines and treadmills in our regional sites, and combining with walks and cycles on the commute to and from work, and adding into the pot any lunchtime, evening and weekend walking, cycling and swimming activities, we aim to complete the ambitiously long route within our 21 day deadline. While we fully appreciate the mammoth task we’ve set ourselves, we’re trying to make the challenge slightly more achievable by allowing friends and family to get involved too. Mileage logged by Quill employees also applies to other participants. And everything counts, even a walk around a shopping centre. We’re utilising technology to help the tracking process where possible. Fitbits, mobile phone apps, and journeys calculated on cycling, rowing and running machines are all in on the act. To make sure every entry is legitimate, we’re asking for photographic evidence using the hashtag #quillathlon. Cheating is most definitely not permitted. Finally, we’re keen on healthy competition to motivate us along towards our goal, so we’ll be giving away prizes to the best-performing teams.
