The annual Spinningfields Sports Day returns for a second year on Friday 4th August, in association with the Greater Company Games.

Now is your chance to round up your colleagues and get involved! We are looking for teams of between 4 and 8 members to join us for the most hilarious Friday afternoon at work you’ll ever experience. It won’t take all day – no more than one and half hours.

Teams will compete in:

  • The three-legged race
  • The egg and spoon race – with a business twist
  • The ‘don’t get the sack’ race
  • The skipping race
  • The classic team building relay

By taking part you will be helping to raise cash for the Lord Mayor of Manchester’s charity – We Love MCR, which improves the lives and life chances of people in the city.

We are asking every team to make a discretionary donation to the We love MCR charity and are suggesting a value of £25 per participant. You can donate on the day or just go to our Virgin Giving page.

To make the event even more fun, we would love to see some fancy dress with prizes available for the best dressed team. Also bring some spectators to cheer you onto glory. Invite the whole office, bring your friends and family too.

Right next to the track, offering the best seat in the house for those too scared to take part, is The Refinery Spinningfields which sells an array of drinks from race boosting smoothies to cocktails.

All participants and their colleagues, friends and family are invited to join us for the Awards Ceremony at 5:30pm in The Refinery. Here we will give out team prizes to the winners, the losers and the best dressed.

The after party will include Live Acoustic Sets starting at 7pm as well as the opportunity to enjoy The Refinery’s wonderful #FizzFridays where Prosecco is £19.95 a bottle
