Kingston Smith provides financial and tax due diligence to Human Race Limited

Kingston Smith has provided financial and tax due diligence services to Human Race Limited in connection with its acquisition of Xtra Mile Events Limited. Human Race is the largest and most diverse mass participation events company in the UK, with a portfolio of over 30 events each year. Xtra Mile, also a sports event company, organises a number of endurance events across Wales and Northern England – most notably, the Greater Manchester Marathon.

Michael Hedges, Finance Director at Human Race Limited comments: “We were very impressed with the final report and how the whole due diligence process was managed. We felt it went very smoothly and was managed professionally by the Kingston Smith team. The report went in to a good level of detail and particularly we valued the work done on Race Entry Prices. We really enjoyed working with you all on it.”
