How far can 6.2 million steps take you? 

24 colleagues from across Adshead Ratcliffe and CARLISLE CM voluntarily set a challenge to ‘walk’ equivalent distance to Carlisle’s five European offices and factories in Holland, Germany and Romania. Over six million steps were estimated for a round trip to the UK.

Ginny Brown, who initiated and organised this challenge, recorded all the steps meticulously on weekly basis and updated the team, commented “I have received some great feedback from colleagues I have got to know a lot better during this challenge and it seems we have all enjoyed the focus and sense of purpose when going out for another walk! Staying safe during lockdown was of course achieved as this activity could be completed alone or with family members.”

The fun challenge concluded on 28th February.

The total steps were 6,209,214 covering a whopping 3105 miles!  

This initiative amplifies the work culture at CARLISLE in the UK and along the way spreading some positivity whilst observing Covid 19 safety restrictions and guidelines.

CARLISLE has six production units that manufacture RESITRIX, HERTALAN, ARBO, HARDCAST and ALUTRIX across UK and Europe.
