About KBC Special Events Limited

KBC Special Events limited was formed in 2003 to manage a number of corporate sports events including The Property Football Cup, the Construction Rugby 7’s and a series of industry sector 5 a side tournaments. The company also managed the IHA Secure and Specialist Care series of Business to Business events within the Healthcare Sector.

In 2013 KBC launched its first mass participation running event, the Harry Hawkes 10. Further race launches quickly followed and the company became fully focussed on organizing running events. In 2018 this move was reflected in the change of operating name to Quicksilver running.
