Sunday, October 19 was a blast from the past at Santa Monica RunFEST. 35 motivated Dun and Bradstreet Credibility Corp. team members ran the 5K Retro Run and chose to dress up in rad ’70s attire. Some brave runners even completed the 10K in their groovy shirts and sweatbands. D&B Credibility Corp. sponsored the event as part of it’s ongoing EdAhead support of the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation.
The Retro Run wasn’t timed, so everyone just had fun with it! We all gathered together at the start and then ran at our own pace. As everyone finished, they huddled together near the finish line and cheered on the rest of the crew.
There were all kinds of goodies on the Santa Monica pier after the race, including samples of Cliff bars, Nestle chocolate milk, fruit, bagels and more. Plus we all got far-out Retro Run shirts and tanks for participating, and a medal for bragging rights.
When everyone was done running we all met up and hung out pool-side for an omelet bar and other awesome treats. It was a great time for friends to hang out and for new interns to get to know everyone.
It was definitely an early morning, but it was more than worth it. Everyone had a good time and got to meet new people or get to know someone better. The weather was perfect, the run was fun and the after party was the perfect ending. We love to work, play, shine and this race was the perfect way to show it!
