KPMG’s Annual Promenade Relay Returns! | June 2022

KPMG’s annual promenade relay returns for 2022 on Friday 8 July. The popular and fun-filled charity event will kick off at 6:00pm in a mass start and will commence and finish at the Bottle Neck Car Park, on Loch Promenade in Douglas. Local businesses across the island are encouraged to enter teams with competitive athletes and fun runners all welcomed.

Date: Wednesday 15 June 2022

Since the relay began in 2013, the event has raised over £70,000 for various Isle of Man charities. This year the event will be staged in support of Project 21, a Manx campaign established by five local charities that support people with learning difficulties. The five charities involved are Manx Mencap, Down’s Syndrome Isle of Man, Autism in Mann, Manx Gateway, and the Special Olympics Isle of Man. Funds and sponsorship raised by the runners will be donated to help maintain and operate the facilities at Centre 21 and increase the choice of activities for people with learning difficulties, from drama to music and sporting activities. 

Kristan King, Advisory Partner and Corporate Social Responsibility committee member at KPMG in the Crown Dependencies commented, “After a two-year break, we are delighted to hold our eighth KPMG prom relay to support Project 21’s vision for empowering people with learning disabilities. This presents a fantastic opportunity to raise money for a worthy cause and highlights how we can collectively be a force for good as a business community.”

Relay teams of 2 or 4 runners will complete four legs of the course totalling 10km. In addition, runners who wish to run their own race can partake in the 5km solo event. The race will be timed by Manx Timing Solutions using timed baton technology. KPMG would like to thank this year’s sponsors, Bakertilly Isle of Man, Callin Wild, IFGL, Manx Telecom, Sleepwell Hotels, Tevir, and Zedra, as well as media partner Manx Radio for their support, and look forward to welcoming everyone for a fantastic evening.
