An invitation to a superb team building event – and a chance to get fit, have fun and raise money for a worthy cause.
The Team here at Aston Charles Towers are considering forming a team to undertake the ’10 in 10 Challenge’, an annual hiking event based in the Lake District, with the aim of bagging 10 well known Lakeland fells in under ten hours!
Tentatively called ‘Team Insurance Professionals’, we hope to field a mixed ability squad comprising employees (and friends) of all of our insurance clients. The event will take place on Saturday 25th June, starting from the infamous Swinside Inn, set in the beautiful Newlands Valley, Keswick, Cumbria. Registration will be between 6.30-8.30 am. Each applicant is expected to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship, although we are sure this can be handsomely exceeded.
Covering a little over 16 miles (27 KM), and taking in such famous tops as Causey Pike, Sail, Robinson, Dale Head, High Spy, and Maiden Moor to name but a few, the route is certainly challenging, but with a little training, should be easily do-able for insurance professionals of all fitness levels.
In order to take advantage of the world famous Cumbrian hospitality, and enjoy a well-earned post-walk pint, the Aston Charles contingent anticipates staying over locally on the Saturday. You are, of course, welcome to join us. Depending on numbers, we could always look at splitting teams into speed / ability, and for less enthusiastic walkers, there is also the slightly gentler ‘5 in 5’ route.
Further information and a selection of photos can be found at www.10in10.org.uk .
Should you wish to join ‘Team Insurance Professionals’ please liaise with the team leader at Aston Charles - Richard Jones. In the meantime we will shortly be creating LinkedIn and Facebook groups to ensure that team spirit is aplenty before the event, informal training sessions are organised, and applications / fund raising efforts are co-ordinated.
For further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We can’t wait to see you.
