Tough Mudder – Charity challenge is a dirty business for Binn Group

Binn Tough Mudder

Binn Group is going to get down and dirty – and it’s all in the name of charity!

Forty five intrepid members of staff have signed up to take part in the challenging Tough Mudder 5k assault course at Edinburgh on August 25. The obstacle challenge in Holyrood Park will push participants to the limit as they struggle through a range of challenging obstacles.

Pulling the team together for the charity challenge is Operations Supervisor Charlene McOmish.

“I’ve always wanted to do the Tough Mudder. So, I asked a few of my workmates if they would like to join me,” she said. “The whole thing just snowballed from there and we’ve now got 45 people taking part.”

Those signing up include drivers, admin staff, plant operators, yard workers, management and salespeople. And everyone is busy gathering sponsorship to support Binn Group’s two chosen charities:

  • CHAS at Rachael House
  • SPEAK mental health support charity

Binn Group Chief Executive Allan MacGregor – who has also signed up for the team – has promised to cover the administration/entry fee for everyone raising £100 or more in sponsorship.
