Does your workplace make run or cycle commuting a breeze? Nominate your workplace for an exclusive Red Bull Extra Mile Workplace Award here.
To tie in with this year’s Red Bull Million Mile Commute, our July campaign that calls on commuters to run or cycle to and from work, we’re launching a brand new awards series, dedicated to employers – the Red Bull Extra Mile Workplace Awards.
Run in association with Cycling UK, the new series of accolades will celebrate and recognise workplaces who support active transport, including running, cycling and walking to work. This could be through the top-notch showering facilities or brilliant bike storage your workplace has on offer, or anything else you might tell us about – we’d love to know!
In a bid to find the very best workplace to ride or run to in the country – and to give them the recognition they deserve – the Red Bull Extra Mile Workplace Awards will reward an overall winner but there are also awards (and prizes!) to be gained for the following subcategories:
Red Bull Extra Mile Workplace Awards: The Categories
- Best for Cycling
- Best for Running
- Best Start Up or Micro Business
- Best Small Business (20-99 employees)
- Best Medium Size Business (100-999 employees)
- Best Enterprise Business (over 1000 employees)
Entries will be judged on the criteria outlined in the below form, originally by our partner, Fusion Media, to create a shortlist of 15. For the shortlisted group of 15 businesses, a judging panel will score on the criteria out of 10. The panel will comprise Will Butler-Adams OBE (CEO of Brompton Bicycle), Emily Brooke MBE (CEO of beryl), cycling journalist Rebecca Charlton and a selection of experts from Cycling UK.
