Malcolm is joining Snowdonia Challenge
This summer Romax employees will be participating in the Snowdonia challenge. This involves walking 100 km in 3 days. Each of our employees shared how they are preparing for the challenge and what they find the most difficult. Here Malcolm shares his thoughts about the Snowdonia challenge.
My name is Malcolm Saunders, I have been at Romax for four years. My job title is Document Setting and Print Operative, and my job responsibilities include Typesetting, Artworking, Design and Digital Printing.
Romax have done quite a bit of work for the Porchlight Charity, and I have read a lot about the hard and essential work they do, and this made me want to do something to help them.
I ran the London Marathon two years ago and am currently cycling into and home from work most days during the week, each day entailing a 30km return trip. So, I do consider myself as above average fitness level.
As mentioned above, I’m cycling 30kms most weekdays, and I also have a seven-year-old Son, so this also keeps me pretty fit!!!
I have run the London Marathon, and many half Marathons too. Obviously, the full London Marathon was a challenge, but I trained well, and the day was very enjoyable!
My only concern that I under-estimate the challenge of walking this long distance three days on the trot, especially considering myself to be pretty fit!
I’m sure the landscape is going to be pretty breath-taking, which is always going to help. And I’ll be taking my earphones – with my Music subscription!
My luxury item will be my earphones I suppose, and earplugs to make sure I sleep well!
I’m sure the team from Romax will be fun to walk with, possibly get to know a bit better spending so much time together, this will be important, I think.
I love football, Liverpool being my team, and I’m also an avid Formula One fan…hold on…there’s a race that weekend…DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
