CB1 – the new city quarter for Cambridge

‘Fit Friday’ needs you

The CB1 Business Centre at 20 Station Road has launched a running group which is welcoming new members.

Springing off the starting blocks on Friday lunchtimes, ‘Fit Friday’ is a way for CB1 locals to kick-off their weekends on the right foot and meet new people in the local community.

While the founding runners are a group of 25 people working in the Business Centre, the club is open to everyone – professionals, students and residents – local to CB1. Each  week, the club follows a route away from main roads up to five kilometres, around the CB1 estate and beyond.

So why should you think of lacing up your trainers? For starters, running is one of the most popular ways of keeping fit: working on your fitness gives a sense of accomplishment, is brilliant for combating stress and boosts mental focus ensuring you return to work with increased productivity and creativity. On top of these benefits, it’s an excuse to expand your professional network informally and a fun way to spend your lunch break.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner – one member used Fit Fridays as part of her marathon training this summer – or a casual jogger, you’re welcome to join the club! To learn more, get in touch with Mell at reception@cb1businesscentre.co.uk or meet the group at the Business Centre Reception the next Friday you can make it.

“‘Fit Friday’ has been an ideal chance to not only get fitness in, but to meet sporty neighbours to connect and build relationships in a fun way. Thanks for bringing us together!”  
Sarah Broderick, Clinked.com

“I joined ‘Fit Friday’ to get some exercise other than my cycle to and from work! It’s great to meet others from the office building and hear what’s going on around CB1.”
Helen Symonds, Turner & Townsend
