Grocers 5k - June 2023

Leopardstown Racecourse was the setting for a 5k race this weekend for Plant Based AC athlete Lea, who competed against rivals from numerous companies in the Irish Grocers Industry. The race took place on Saturday 17 June. Lea was representing his company Aldi in this event and it made for a very successful day, with Lea storming home through heavy rain showers and blustering wind on the open racecourse to first place.

Lea's individual win also contributed towards Aldi's victory in the team event, where they placed first overall in the Irish Grocers team standings. For their first corporate event, Aldi sure proved themselves to be leaders of the field. Well done to all competitors in this well organised event. Thanks to all the sponsors on the day too, Lea was impressed with the range of vegan items in the goodie bag - one of the best he said afterwards! To hear his synopsis of the event check out his YouTube video included below.
