Keeping you in the Loop

On the 16th and 17th September three teams from CARLISLE® CM Europe took part in the ‘Dam tot Dam Loop’ Weekend, the largest sporting weekend in the Netherlands. Around 87,000 people from all over the world came together to participate in the walking, running and cycling events.

Employees from CARLISLE® CM Europe in Germany, Holland and the UK partook in the 20km walk, the 16km run and the 160km cycle.

“The run was a fantastic experience, not only did we get to know our colleagues from other countries but run with fifty thousand people from businesses all over the world — the atmosphere was excellent with loads of bands including drummers and the section through the IJtunnel were special. I am already looking forward to next year. Well done to everyone who participated and supported this event” Shail Chauhan, Marketing Executive UK.

“I am so happy that the weekend was such a great experience for everyone and enjoyed showing off our country to visitors from other offices” Susanne Bouwmeester, Marketing, The Netherlands

Part of the guiding principles of CARLISLE® CM Europe is to promote a healthy lifestyle and to also make work fun.
