We are proud to return as sponsors the Cateran Yomp in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. For the fourth year running, we are supporting the event by providing water stations at the event hub in Blairgowrie, and along the 54-mile route to help keep participants, volunteers and employees refreshed and hydrated, all while reducing unnecessary single-use plastic waste.
The Cateran Yomp is an annual event in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and exists to raise vital funds to support soldiers, veterans, and their families. It is the biggest and toughest event of its kind. Taking part in the foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland, teams battle through a 54-mile hike in 24 hours across the rugged terrain of the Scottish Wilderness.
This year, we have a team from Castle Water participating in the event; Kevin McIntyre, Team Leader – Disconnections, and Dr Alex Murdoch, Technical Relationship Manager. Both Kevin and Alex are completing the 54-mile Yomp route to raise money for this fantastic charity.
If you would like to donate to the teams’ JustGiving pages and contribute to their fundraising goals, please use the below links:
“The Cateran Yomp is a great event for a great cause and I have been wanting to do this for a few years. I’m most looking forward to the challenge. Hopefully, we have good weather for the event, it’s a tough enough challenge without having to do it in the rain! It’s been a while since I’ve done an event like this, the last one being the Isle of White Challenge back in 2015 – 66 miles in 24 hours!”
– Kevin McIntyre, Team Leader – Disconnections
“This is an event that really seems to reflect the challenges faced by the people it supports, and a great way to raise funds for such an important cause. I’m really looking forward to getting to the finish line (hopefully!). Not so much the sore feet – I hope I can avoid the blisters. I haven’t done a big, organised event like this before, but I have had a number of big days on the mountains which should help.”
– Dr Alex Murdoch, Technical Relationship Manager
