Teams from Enterprise Mouchel, Ramboll and Fairhurst are the latest to sign up for the CARE Construction Challenge supported by NCE and Ground Engineering.
The challenge takes place on 30 June on Dorset’s scenic Purbeck peninsula. Teams will take on a marathon distance on foot, bike and kayak while raising vital funds to support poverty relief charity CARE International.
Enterprise Mouchel 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!”
The team currently manage the strategic road network in southern England on behalf of the Highways Agency. Many of the main roads that the competitors will travel to the event are on the team’s network, with the A31 also being the Olympic route to Weymouth.
CARE responds to humanitarian emergencies with, amongst other forms of assistance, emergency and transitional shelter, permanent housing and infrastructure. CARE’s work resonates with the EnterpriseMouchel team, and was a big factor in their decision to take part. Ricky explains, “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.”
