In less than three weeks over 30 A-SAFE employees will take on one of the most demanding obstacle courses in the world, The Tough Mudder.
The gruelling 12-mile course, devised by British Special Forces, extends over rough terrain and woodland and includes a host of fiendish obstacles along the way, including Ring of Fire, Skidmarked, Electroshock Therapy and the enticingly-named Arctic Enema.
Staff of all ages, shapes and fitness abilities will be taking part. Some A-SAFE employees have adopted a rigorous training schedule over the last six months in order to prepare for the challenge. Other staff, however, have chosen to adopt the less conventional ‘wing and a prayer’ approach to their preparation.
Events manager, Rob Siddle said: “We have people with lots of different athletic abilities prepared to give this challenge a go and, although some may not be quite as fit as others, everybody has the same determination to complete the course in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research. Who knows what the day will hold, but the A-SAFE team is ready to get muddy, wet and exhausted for a good cause. We really think it will be a great and memorable day.”
