CSR Spotlight: Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon

Posted on April 12, 2022

For the fourth consecutive year, Roux’s Woburn, Massachusetts office participated in the Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon. This event entailed a race to benefit Friends of Tuckerman Ravine, an organization in New Hampshire that preserves trails and does avalanche prevention and safety in the White Mountains. Many of our employees live close to New Hampshire and love to travel to these mountains for a hike or weekend trip with friends and family, making it the perfect cause for an exciting event.

We fielded two teams for the fierce competition, consisting of a fat-tire bike ride, cross-country ski, snowshoe, mountain hike, and downhill ski. While the weather wasn’t ideal and the conditions were muddy, everyone crushed their event, and spirits were high despite the drizzle. The Tuckerman Inferno adventure race started in 2000 as the primary annual fundraiser for Friends of Tuckerman Ravine. It’s a great event and Roux tradition that our Massachusetts team looks forward to competing in for years to come!
