A team of enthusiastic athletes from Haymarket Exhibitions donned their running shoes and helmets to raise £3,500 for the Events for Namuwongo initiative.
Ten teams of three competed in the London Duathlon in Richmond Park, which consisted of a 10 kilometre run, 44km cycle and 5km run, on 9 September.
“I am so proud of the team for pulling together and completing their respective parts of the course, especially given the heat they had to content with on the day,” Haymarket Exhibitions MD Laura Biggs said.
“A brilliant time was had by all and we know that the money is going to a fantastic cause.”
UBM has moved a step closer towards the acquisition of US organiser Advanstar.
The American firm, valued at US$972 million (£599 million) specialises in fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports events.
