The Isle of Wight Challenge - iDaCs goes the extra mile.

Date: 8th June 2018   |   Author: Liz Farrimond

At iDaCs, we’re always willing to go the extra mile, to make sure we find a solution to suit our customers’ cabling requirements. Our team ethos is led by our MD, Paul Cattell, who recently went a few (dozen) extra miles. In early May, Paul took part in the Isle of Wight Challenge.

The challenge wasn’t getting there, as we’re just across the Solent in Chandlers Ford; it was more to do with the round the island course, which he had to complete on foot.

The event took place over the May Bank Holiday weekend, when the temperatures were unusually high (around 25 degrees C).

Paul and three friends embarked on the 106km (66.25 mile) route from Chale, in the south of the island.
For those of you that haven’t met him, Paul’s the second from the left in both pictures.

Despite weeks of intensive training, including 10 mile daily walks and 30 mile walks on Sundays, not all of Paul’s team were able to complete the course. In fact, Paul Cattell, Managing Director of iDaC Solutions Ltd was the only one of his team to cross the finish line - in just over 32 hours of continuous walking.

Not everyone in the iDaCs team is as determined as Paul, or as energetic, but we are right behind his efforts.

He’s told us that he may do the round the island challenge next year – but this time on his bike!
