Trilogy and the 3 mile Spartan Sprint – Please Donate!
A typical Trilogy consultant would, more often than not, describe themselves as ‘competitive’: so much so that they often jump at the chance to compete even against each other…
Our consultants are always curious to see who is the fastest, the strongest out of the lot – even at the expense of one of our Managing Directors having to be admitted into hospital after last summer’s JP Morgan Corporate 5K.
So, it is was no surprise that more than half the office were willing to take part in this April’s Spartan Race, even though many were unaware exactly what it was they had signed up for.
If you haven’t heard of the Spartan Race before, it is a worldwide fitness challenge in the form of military-like obstacle course, varying from 3 miles to marathon lengths.
Trilogy have, of course, opted for the 3 mile ‘Spartan Sprint,’ which doesn’t sound at all that bad until you consider the kind of obstacles typically presented. We can expect to be crawling through barbed wire, climbing up cargo netting, doing monkey bars over pits of icy water and jumping through fire – all while trudging to each obstacle through lots and lots and lots of mud.
Following a particularly chilly start to March, our consultants are understandably contracting an array of ‘back’ problems, but still press on as they know that their participation is not to display their personal fitness, but to help raise money for our company charity, The Alzheimer’s Society.
Our chosen charity aims to transform the lives of those affected by dementia, a neurodegenerative disease with symptoms such as memory loss, problem solving and language. The disease current affects over 850,000 people and their families in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025.
Trilogy, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society, aims to raise money towards research for treatment and prevention, as well as ensure that those affected by dementia receive the support they need.

Every donation, big or small, brings us closer to our target and closer to a cure. We hope to have fun as a team along the way, and that all of our consultants make it back to the office on Monday in once piece.
