Today managers from the Leeds law firm Clarion, sponsors of the event for the last seven years, took to the streets in preparation.

Senior partner Roger Hutton said: “Seven years on this is the event that just keeps on growing. It has really caught the imagination of the Yorkshire business community – organisations successfully combine employee engagement with some good old fashioned business competition.”
