LGN 2012 Inter Advertising 5km

Wednesday, 12th September 2012

LGN 2012 Inter Advertising 5km results:

OMG UK crowned LGN 2012 Inter Advertising 5km champions:

They say winning a title is hard but successfully defending it is harder, and OMG UK proved how hard they had to run and push through the burning lactic threshold to again hold off team Carat.

When OMG UK won the LGN 5km title in 2011 they narrowly beat Carat by 66 seconds and when you think their cumulative time was over three and half hours you understand how slender last year's victory truly was. However,  in Olympic year under LGN's in-house Run Club training OMG UK slashed their 2011 team time by over 5 minutes, even though the Carat team gave impressive chase the gap in 2012 rose slightly to just under 2 minutes, so all to play for come 2013...



Yes - it is front page news as OMG UK retain the coveted LGN Inter Advertising 5km trophy


OMG UK wonder women: 

In the tale of the tape much kudos must go to the OMG UK ladies who took over 4 minutes out of team Carat's ladies and indeed were the fastest 5 women in town on September 13th.  And it was their LGN Run Club captain Ingrid Wagner who scored a big life time 5km PB to help guide them to such a strong winning position.

A&E DDB medal yet again:

Even though 2012 saw almost 15 new company teams enter the 5km, on the third step of the team LGN podium once again was A&E DDB yet again fully in contention. Since LGN started the Inter Advertising 5km in 2007 the Bishops Bridge Road agency has never missed the podium, testament perhaps to their long standing LGN Run Club and quite possible the infectious running passion of CEO Stephen Woodford. 

We hope soon to have reaction and quotes from the OMG UK camp but in the meantime we congratulate our 2012 champions and high five each and every lycra clad star who got involved our LGN Inter Advertising 5km.
