A team of staff from Trinity International Services have committed to a rigorous training schedule, as they prepare to take on one of Scotland’s beastliest obstacle races on 26 September.
A group of five Trinity International Services employees have formed the ‘Trinity Titans’ and will take part in the challenging 10k Banchory Beast to raise money for the charity Children 1st.
The challenging route starts on the banks of Knockburn Loch in Aberdeenshire where participants will drag themselves through thick mud, climb over 12ft-high wooden walls and wade through bog water to reach the finish line.
The Trinity Titans are now putting themselves through their paces by completing 5k and 7k routes around Aberdeen all planned and coordinated by nominated coach and Trinity Management Trainee Robbie Ambrose.
22 year old Robbie said: “This is a demanding course for us to take on so we really need to make sure we’re not only up for the challenge but fit enough to complete it.
“Our office is in the city centre so we have great access to lots of running routes and open areas like the Duthie Park, where we can practice obstacles straight after work.
“It’s hard going, but the Trinity staff have been really encouraging. The chefs at work have even been giving us healthy recipes!
“We plan to train as hard as we can ahead of the race in September and hope to raise as much money as possible for the Children 1st charity in the process.”
Children 1st is a Scottish charity which works to protect Scotland’s most vulnerable children and families. The charity delivers 63 local services in Scotland with nine based across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Children 1st used to be known as the Royal Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
