Caerphilly-based Colour Tone Masterbatch entered a team into this year’s Survival of the Fittest 2010 - Tri Nations Challenge. Events were staged in England, Scotland and Wales on 3 October.
The Colour Tone team competed in the Cardiff leg where its members attacked a 10km urban assault course that featured 10 testing trials including a hay bale wall, heavy lifting at the Men’s Health at Work construction site, a crawl through tractor tyres, a stadium climb and an unforgiving 8ft high wall on the finishing straight.
The course was due to take in a river crossing but adverse weather conditions rendered this too dangerous to attempt. However, the nice organisers kindly arranged for the South Wales Fire Service to deliver a couple of extra soakings.
