First Media Director, Shane Traill believes in keeping himself fit and healthy. Over the last few years he has been involved in many charity runs and challenges such as #toughmudder the Cleethorpes half marathon and many more. Shane is an advocate of health and wellbeing and brings his enthusiasm for this into the workplace. At First Media fresh fruit arrives for staff and visitors on a daily basis and the team are given support to achieve their personal fitness goals.

Most recently Shane took part in the ‘Gruesome Twosome, a 13.1 mile run across the Lincolnshire Wolds. It is aptly named Gruesome Twosome as it is challenging terrain that has to be completed with a partner. Running with his friend Thomas Waldron, Shane came up with the genius team name ‘Traill Across the Walds!’

He commented

Such a great run! It really epitomised what teamwork means... uphill struggles, supporting each other when the going gets tough, long stretches when you don't think you'll reach the end, pushing each other to reach the goal... then celebrating together when we crossed the finish line as a team. Looking forward to the next one! #traillacrossthewalds 

Shane is currently considering the London Marathon as his next challenge. If it goes ahead, he will be doing this for charity and will need to raise a minimum £1,000. If you think he should go for it, why not drop him a line of encouragement! Your support would mean a lot, email
