Broth­ers Adam and David get ready for a real sur­vival test

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

A To­ry­glen man has won the chance to test him­self against the el­e­ments this week­end.

Adam Cu­sack (29) will take part in a two day sur­vival week­end in Wilt­shire from this Fri­day on­wards.

The ad­ven­ture came about be­cause he won it as a prize in a con­test or­gan­ised by Jeep called Rene­gades Wanted.

Adam found out about the com­pe­ti­tion be­cause Jeep were a spon­sor of the Tough Mud­der event that he was tak­ing part in.

He de­cided to go for the out­door sur­vival prize, and was de­lighted when told he’d won.

He said: “I’m keen on the out­doors and I do a lot of camp­ing and things like that.

“I can’t wait for this, it’s a good chance to learn some new skills and see how I do.

“I’m not ac­tu­ally sure ex­actly what it’ll in­volve, other than it’ll be in Wilt­shire and I’ll be there for a cou­ple of days.

“It’s go­ing to be ex­treme sur­vival and it’ll be good to find out what it in­volves - the more ex­treme the bet­ter be­cause how of­ten do you get the chance to do that? “It’ll be a good ex­pe­ri­ence.” Adam will be joined by his brother David for the week­end, who he regularly goes camp­ing and walk­ing with.

The com­pe­ti­tion was set up to en­cour­age peo­ple to take on ad­ven­tures, with 10 win­ners picked from across the coun­try.

Damien Dally, Jeep Coun­try Man­ager, added: “We all have a bit of the Rene­gade within us, and we’re ex­cited to see Adam un­leash his as part of this in­cred­i­ble, once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity.

“Jeep is the epit­ome of ad­ven­ture and pas­sion and we cre­ated the Rene­gades Wanted com­pe­ti­tion to show just 10 win­ners how they can chal­lenge con­ven­tion and add ad­ven­ture into their lives.

“Our win­ners are go­ing to be chas­ing their dreams dur­ing July, from train­ing with Olympians, to swimming with sharks and learn­ing to sur­vive in the wild.

“We’ve found our Rene­gades and can’t wait to see what we’re go­ing to un­leash!”
