We like to do things differently here at Deeo. So instead of settling for the traditional ‘analogue’ May Day Bank Holiday pursuits of gardening or wet & windy day trips, one of our team, Jodie, decided to take it up a notch & enter herself & her mum into Race for Life’s Pretty Muddy event.
For those of you that don’t know, the Race for Life Pretty Muddy is a brilliant 5k muddy obstacle course where you can show cancer that hell hath no fury like a woman in pink!
Cancer Research is a cause close to both of their hearts & they wanted to take the opportunity to raise awareness, raise some money & have a lot of fun. The day started well with the sun shining & as they pulled into the grounds of Weston Park they were awed by the sea of pink before them, made up of the hundreds of other women getting ready to run & their supporters. However, as they made their way to the start line to join in with the pre-run warm up, the sun quickly turned to hail!! But amazingly this passed as the starting pistol went & they began their muddy adventure.
Cheered on by their fellow walkers, runners, spectators & the many volunteers they started along the course & came across the first obstacle, large, pink inflatable logs to run at & jump over! Great, bouncy fun!! This was followed by climbing into & through large ‘paddling pools’ of mud, up & over the cargo nets, through the spider webs, crawling through freezing muddy puddles & under cargo nets.
Soon the finish line was in sight, along with the final obstacle, a giant inflatable pink water slide. They made their way up the cargo net & after a brief pause at the top, slid their way down while being sprayed with water pistols & landing in one final mud bath.
Even though they were both cold, soaked & covered in mud, they finished with massive smiles on their faces & a vow to do it again next year. To add to their joy, they have also managed to raise £373 so far for Cancer Research.
It’s not too late to Donate
