The Stena Drilling-ConocoPhillips Corporate Team Challenge competition on Saturday will pitch Scotland hill running international Kyle Greig against his girlfriend Debbie Moore.

Greig is representing Aberdeen Sports Village, who were the first winners of the trophy in 2013, while Moore competes for the ConocoPhillips Cops and Joggers side which lifted the title last year.

Moore said: “I wasn't in the team when they won in 2014 and I'm sure we'll be even stronger this time. Kyle has been injured recently so I'm determined to beat him. His team has no chance."

Moore is currently training for her ironman triathlon debut and is following a punishing training plan.

She said: “I’ll be cycling 50 miles from Aberdeen to Balmoral as a warm-up. Then I'll run in the ConocoPhillips 5km and the Stena Drilling 10km."

Each team must field four runners in the ConocoPhillips 5K and four runners in the Stena Drilling Tartan 10K. The same runners can compete in both the 5K and the 10K if they so wish – and if they feel up to it!

Teams competing in the Corporate Challenge must field at least four runners in the 5km and 10km.

The finishing position of each of the four runners in each race will be added together to give an overall score and the team with the lowest combined total from the two races will win the magnificent winner's trophy, made from red deer antler and sycamore wood.

Eighteen teams have signed up for the Challenge. Here's the full list:

Aberdeen Sports Village
Accelerate
BP Challengers
Cops and Joggers

It’s a Fair COP
