Sunday arrived bright, sunny and warm and with it four brave heroes from Sawyer & Co. trecked over to Battle to the 220-acre estate that is Ashburnham Place. No, not for a nice day out but ready to throw down the gauntlet and tackle the BEAST, the toughest course from the SPARTAN RACE portfolio.
Not your average race! The Spartan Race is not for the faint hearted but more for those adrenaline-junkies who thrive on adventure and excitement. Perfect then for our intrepid four, Ashley, Lee, Nick and James.
Admittedly the course did take in some of the most gorgeous terrain the world has to offer…….but then there was the running, climbing, crawling, splashing through mud, tackling many challenging obstacles and putting to the test their overall strength, balance, mental tenacity and endurance……all finished off with a fiery leap of victory!!
Did any of that put them off? No, the team was awesome smashing the 24kms and 31obstacles in 4 hours, 4 minutes! Not only did they smash the race they also smashed their target by an outstanding 115%, over £2300 for the local Clock Tower Sanctuary. An amazing feat of endurance for an amazing charity looking after our City's homeless. Well done boys! And thank you to everyone who donated to this worthwhile cause.
