THREE employees at BT's Adastral Park are set to take part in a tough fitness challenge to raise money for charity.

Paul Martin, James Gardiner and Marshall Crowe, who work in BT Design, are members of a joint BT Operate/Design team, which will be undertaking the Microsoft UK Challenge in Stirling, Scotland, next month.

The event, lasting four days from June 12, involves running, mountain biking, kayaking, and construction challenges.

The team held a running cycle roller racing at the Adastral Park Hub this week in a bid to raise even more money for the NSPCC. Riders reached speeds of up to 60mph over 500 metres and 1,000 metres distances.
