Mutech’s annual summer event.
Mutech’s annual summer event allows the staff to have fun, let their hair down and engage in outdoor pursuits. Mutech has a history of visiting outdoor activity centres in and around the Manchester area, this year the company opted for the Trafford Treetop Adventure Centre, based at the Trafford Centre, Manchester.
The Treetop Adventure Centre is an aerial obstacle course, where participants a tackle climbing, rope bridge walks, balance beams and zip-wire descents.
On arrival at the centre, Mutech employees were required to complete a consent form to take part in the activities. Then given safety instructions by the Treetop Adventure staff. On course etiquette explained and fitted out with a harness to attached themselves to the safety line that spanned the whole course Mutech employees, now chomping at the bit to get going, were eventually allowed to head out on to the course.
Those employees with a competitive streak chose the sprint option around the course, whereas others took a more leisurely approach. It was a team effort to get everyone round the course, the more sure-footed ones helping and encouraging those less confident. Those that were not so confident taking part initially having fears about being so high up off the ground, were able to overcome their fears and complete the course and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the aerial pursuits.
Once all had completed the aerial pursuit course, those that wanted to prove themselves were able to take part in a timed race around the first section of the course. Congratulations goes to Jonathan who smashed the course record in a time of 1 minute 25 seconds. Many thanks to the Treetop Adventure staff, who were very friendly, helpful and encouraging during Mutech’s visit.
After all the physical activity, Mutech then headed off to Frankie & Bennys restaurant located near the Trafford Centre, where a hearty, well deserved meal was enjoyed by all.
