The Co-operative jogscotland 5k challenges kicked off for 2009 in Aberdeenshire on Tuesday 16th June, and specialists Team Challenge Company was there in full force, with one team member prepared to go a little further than most...!

Team Challenge Company's very own Dozer the Clown was set to take on the first 5k challenge of this year in the stunning surroundings of Haddo Country Park. Arriving in his full clown attire, Dozer entertained the masses with his fantastic Juggling tricks and Plate Spinning skills, before wowing the crowds with his trademark Diablo Finale! Dozer's brightly coloured clown smile masked his nerves, for he was about to take on his biggest challenge yet - all five kilometers of it!

The fabulously friendly jogscotland atmosphere inspired the crowds of runners who had come along in eager anticpation to Haddo Country Park. Around 500 atheletes of all experience and abilities warmed up at the start line to some pumping tunes - trust our crew to be right up at the front giving it everything they had! With nerves subsidding and adrenaline taking over, the echoing sound of a hooter marked the beginning of the first leg of this years Co-operative jogscotland 5k Challenges.Dozer the Clown bounded round the course in a lightning quick fashion - which included a bit of a hill (to say the least)! The winning athlete completed the course in a stunning 16 minutes, but Dozer the Clown held his Clown Hat proudly aloft as he crossed the finish line in a remarkable 25 minutes - great job Dozer, we all knew you could do it, what a way to end a tremendous run!

A fantastic start to the 5k challenges at Haddo House. The jogscotland team did such a great job with the organisation of the evening - apart from the hill ! Alastair we have to talk ! Beautiful evening and the warm ups and childrens race was a real inspiration to everyone. Our Team Challenge Team was lead off by Dozer the Clown who looked da bomb in his size 34 trainers ! Jonathan and Neil put in a temendous effort with excellent times and I as usual measured my time with a calendar ! Fantastic workplace effort from Arjo King to take the trophy and well done to all the finishers who received super goody bags , T shirts and medals . We were all winners on the night See you all at the next start line Stephen



Dozer...Dozer...Dozer! What an effort, an inspiration to us all, and the rest of the Team Challenge Company bunch are looking forward to following in your clown footsteps, putting on our trainers and running in the up and coming 5k challenges. The Haddo Country Park leg of the 5k challenges was a tremendous success, the entire event very well organised and the course itself was absloutely gorgeous! Congratualtions to Alastair, Megan, Duncan and the rest of the jogscotland team, we look forward to seeing you again in Inverness. Congratualtions to the you Arjo King Team for their performance in the 5k Workplace Challenge - storming! Can't wait to see Dozer back out on the course in Glasgow next Wednesday
