More than 600 employees and suppliers from across the UK and Europe took on the 33rd Jaguar Land Rover Challenge in Llangollen, Wales.
The UK’s largest and longest-running team-building competition, saw the teams tackle a number of different activities along the designated route, which they needed to complete within 11 hours. Tasks included small boat building, mountain biking, a driving challenge, abseiling and 54km of walking routes across the Welsh countryside.
After hours of tough competition, it was the Mighty Schmucks who took the Jaguar Land Rover Challenge golden boot for a third time. The Chosen Ones, crowned champions in 2016 and 2017, secured second place, closely followed by Lost Cause. While automation and robotics specialists Comau won the supplier award.
The Mighty Schmucks team captain Ian Cooper, said: “Teamwork was vital to our success from scouting the terrain to planning our route. We’ve all had a brilliant time and think it’s great Jaguar Land Rover gives us such an amazing opportunity to develop our skills outside work.”
The outward bound team-building challenge promotes teamwork, leadership and confidence, and was supported by 50 employee and retiree volunteers.
