Sign up now for CARE Construction Challenge

Industry professionals are signing up in droves to take on this year’s CARE Construction Challenge in June. The 26.2 mile marathon is a demanding test of a team’s physical fitness as they walk or run 11 miles, kayak 1.2 miles and finish off the challenge with a 14 mile cycle ride. Last year’s defendants BAM Nuttall will once again be taking part, alongside Crossrail, Kingspan and Ramboll.

CARE International is an inspirational charity providing much needed shelter to war-torn and natural disaster struck regions. Not only does the organisation give back security, adequate healthcare and dignity to displaced people through emergency shelters, but it trains communities in essential construction skills to help them get back on their feet and creates disaster resistant buildings for future security. The money raised through the challenge will go to support CARE’s vital efforts across the globe.

Network Management firm EnterpriseMouchel are also taking up the challenge and team leader, Ricky Taylor, said: “We were attracted by the mix of physical events: running, cycling and canoeing makes the event more of a challenge than a one discipline event and the distances, whilst being challenging, are achievable for mere mortals…mere mortals who have taken their training seriously! We certainly appreciate the importance of maintaining critical infrastructure and hope that some of our colleagues may engage with CARE as a result of publicising our involvement in this event.”
