Buccleuch Property Challenge - 1ST PLACE

22nd September 2023

A team comprising of HTA Director Nick Atkinson, Michael O'Driscoll Commercial Property Investment Director at Northumberland Estates and  Thomas Prentice also of Northumberland Estates have finished 1st in the gruelling men's race at the Buccleuch Property Challenge.

Nick Atkinson said "Starting from the breath taking Drumlanrig Castle, Dumfries and Galloway, teams of three travel together through all the stages, competing against the clock and collecting race points as they go through the different checkpoints. The team with the most points and fastest time win the event. A key part of the race is to plan your tactics, think about timing and, most importantly, work as a team. The course is different every year and surprise activities are only revealed on the day itself".

Michael added "At 5 hours 11 minutes to complete the course in this heat was a great effort by all the team".

As a side note congratulations to Thomas Prentice who after completing the Buccleuch Challenge went on to finish the Great North Run in 47th place 2 days later.
