SIG Insulation has sponsored the event for the past six years, but this is the first time the business has fielded a team to take part in the race. The company is encouraging others from across the construction industry to sign up to the Team Challenge, which invites teams of three or four to enter from any business or organisation.

Scott Jones, legal department supervisor at SIG Insulation, who is leading the team, said: "The industry has had a tough time of late, and it’s easy to overlook the value of events like these. We are not only pledging support and funding, but using this as a great opportunity to build team spirit – and we think others should do the same!

"There’s nothing wrong with a bit of healthy rivalry between businesses, and this is a great opportunity to fuel that competitiveness while doing something good for a deserving cause. With 10,000 places available this year, we hope to see others in our sector, from our competitors and suppliers to other parts of SIG plc, getting involved and taking up our challenge!"
