So I'm attempting to create a deathrun map for the first time, and I wanted to use a custom sound for the motivator, however I cannot find any up to date tutorials on how to impliment custom sounds, anyone care to help me out?

Assuming you've already found a sound, just shove the mp3 or wav into this directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\sound

You might need to fiddle with the bitrate some to get it to work, but generally TF2 isn't that picky with its sound files.
Just be aware that it won't play in the actual hammer editor, although it probably will play in game, assuming it's an acceptable bitrate.
