RISE TO EVERY CHALLENGE – stronger together!
Two of Northamptonshire’s most enterprising independent businesses, Uventure Run and ToughPhone, have joined forces to create a unique mobile challenge in which the UK’s toughest mobile phone range will be put to the ultimate test in one of the UK’s toughest outdoor event series. This is the start of a collaboration between these two companies who will work together in promoting the outdoor rugged adventure lifestyle.
For the opening event of its 2019 series, Kettering based Uventure Run will be putting The DEFENDER BEAST – IP68 rugged Android smartphone – through its paces. The first of a three-event series, comprising of a 12k, 6k and Junior event, will prove a stern challenge for the fully waterproof, dustproof and military tough qualities of the handset; one that Toughphone firmly believes it is more than equal to. Director of Toughphone Stephen Westley explains:
“We built The Beast, (as with the other mobile phones and tablets in our Defender range), to withstand the toughest environments, be it the outdoors or the workplace and still deliver on performance. Running the latest Android OS and incorporating the highest specifications expected of a smartphone, including toughened Gorilla Glass screens, the range is proving popular with professionals working in tough environments and outdoor pursuits enthusiasts who are fed up being without their phones due to broken screens, water damage or cracked cases”.
At the 6th April 2019 event, the Uventure team will test The Defender Beast on a course packed with over 40 obstacles incorporating water, mud, crawling and climbing challenges, they will be making use of its push to talk capabilities to communicate with each other, ensuring the smooth running of the event and the safety of all participants. As explained by Pete Lewis, one of the Uventure Directors:
“Our events are incredible fun, but a tremendous challenge. Our team are completely ‘hands-on’ and involved in assisting the runners where necessary, always looking-out for their safety. From previous runs we know the the Beast and runners will be exposed to, a good water soaking, mud baths and a few spills along the way, so The Beast will be tested to its limits. Good communication is essential to ensure we offer a well organised and safe event for staff and participants; we are confident that the Defender Beast will serve us well in this”.
There also be the opportunity for every contestant to be entered into a draw to win one of the Defender Toughphones.
