MacTuff is the right stuff

Training at the Alloa Campus gym toughened up a team of Forth Valley College staff members who took on the MacTuff endurance race at the beginning of January.

The 10 strong group – named the purple Muddy Runners – competed in the event at Knockhill in Fife on the 8 January 2017 and covered between 15 kilometres and more than 52 obstacles along the way.

Alloa Campus Gym Assistant, Steve Fleming – who also participated in the run, said:

“This was an endurance race, which takes into account mental and physical fitness and obviously will power. The staff all trained well beforehand and put in a great effort on the day. The whole team finished the course with times ranging from 3hrs -3hrs 30mins. The majority of the team have now signed up again for next year’s punishment. I am sure they will be back in the gym preparing soon.”

The FVC team consists of: Evelyn Burgees, Steve Still, Steve Fleming , Stephen Mitchell, Laurence Ferguson, Colin Kirk, Raymond Evenden, Claire McLaughlin, Jen Hogarth and Laura Hutton. Others who competed alongside the FVC employees included: Louise McLeod, Peter McLeod and John Walker.

FVC Construction Lecturer Andrew Hilton took these great pics on the day.
