Companies based near the Olympic Park have come up with an innovative way of providing their workers with more exercise.

A survey from Lendlease and London Continental Railways, the partners who run Stratford’s International Quarter London, revealed more than half of office workers don’t feel like they get enough exercise.

So the partners have launched a series of ‘mobile meeting’ routes around the Olympic Park, intended for people to conduct meetings as they walk.

The Executive Team route takes one hour and goes past the aquatics centre, the Olympic Bell and the Copper Box Arena, in an attempt to use iconic sites from the 2012 Olympics to inspire company seniors.

The Brainstorm, which takes 45 minutes, is designed to encourage creativity by going past the park’s artistic sites, like the installations Spiegelei Junior and RUN.

By the time it’s finished, Cancer Research UK, the British Council and Deutsche Bank will all have offices in the International Quarter London, a £2.4bn development of office spaces built as part of Stratford’s regeneration.
