We completed the 23rd Severn Trent Mountain Challenge!
Boulting Technology entered two teams in this year’s challenge in support of WaterAid.
The teams conquered the challenging conditions in the Dark Peak area of the Peak district on Saturday 9th July. A team of eight colleagues undertook the 10 mile challenge, completing the course of 11.0 miles in 6 hours and 29 minutes and coming in 5th place. Our 20 mile team of five completed their 21.3 mile course in 9 hours and 1 minute. They also achieved a respectable 5th place out of 46 competing teams.
Ian Oliver, Managing Director and 20-mile team member commented “The course was challenging with three steep ascents, but even the torrential rain and slippery conditions didn’t dampen our spirits. With the help of ibuprofen, sweets galore and great team work, both teams finished with smiles on their faces. It felt a great achievement and together we raised £644.00 for WaterAids’ life saving work in Ethiopia”
