Last Thursday, Kronos held its second annual 5K walk/run in Chelmsford, Massachusetts (home to our headquarters). Participation was complimentary and open to all Kronos employees and their families.
Our now-annual 5K is a great way to get Kronites outside and active together – whether you’re an experienced runner or you’d just prefer to walk the 3.1-mile loop.
Leading up to the event, we held a Desk to 5K program for anyone who wanted to get fully prepared for the race. (It’s Kronos’ version of the popular Couch to 5K program). In addition to engaging employees, this program also successfully increased participants’ endurance for race day.
Although the 5K is a great incentive to get Kronites active and engaged, we’re lucky that it’s only one element to Kronos’ breadth of healthy living benefits. From our on-site, fully-equipped gyms to the Quit for Life program to Weight Watchers discounts (to name a few), Kronites throughout the world are constantly encouraged to live healthy, happy lives – inside and outside of work.

What are your tips for staying healthy – and active – inside and outside of work?
