Setting A New Bar With The Corporate Challenge Race


Twelve teams had their strength, agility, and sheer grit tested at the recently held Republic Bank sponsored Barbados Adventure Race (BAR) Corporate Challenge.

After much fun, laughter and spirited rivalry, CIBC FCIB’s team, Bank on Us, claimed the top spot, with Republic Bank’s No Burpees placing second and CIBC FCIB’s Loan Stars placing third.

This is the fifth year for the event which saw teams tackling challenging obstacles spread across the sprawling Peg Farm, St Joseph circuit. The BAR Corporate Challenge is the brainchild of popular physical trainer and business owner George Griffith who designed it to encourage healthy practices, exercise and camaraderie among members of corporate teams.

Manager, Marketing & Corporate Communications, Mischa Knight, said, “The Bank was happy to support the Barbados Adventure Race because we too see the difference it makes in our own teams. It is proof that things that may seem difficult, like exercising regularly and eating healthily, can in fact be fun and quite rewarding. Our team members benefit from the experience and apply the discipline and focus they learn in preparing for BAR to their work at the Bank.
