There was no doubt that Infineum Mexico made its presence known at the recent “Carrera por la salud” or “Race for health” in El Salto. The annual race, in its third year, promotes health and wellbeing by inviting all companies in the city’s industrial corridor to participate. Every year Infineum colleagues from El Salto and their families partake and each year their results improve!
Infineum colleagues, contractors, trainees and family members trained for several weeks to prepare for this much anticipated race. There was a good variety of Infineum representatives of all ages and genders taking part in both the 5km and 10km races.
Over all, more than 1,200 participants turned up to the event full of energy at the starting line!
At the end of the race there was good news for the Infineum team: 1st place in one category and 2nd place in another!
Everyone was very happy to have achieved their goals and to have participated in this great race. It was also an excellent bonding experience for the Infineum colleagues and other runners from different companies.
“Our great results this year have certainly motivated the team and there are some who have already set their goals to improve and win at the next race. I am sure that there will be a lot more Infineum champions!” said Hector Hernandez, Infineum Production Scheduler.
