We had a fantastic weekend for the 1st Safe At Last Challenge Event. Eight Point Two put together the race in the grounds of Lord and Lady Scarbrough’s estate in Sandbeck. The 10k course was quick but great fun. We had just enough rain to wet up the muddy sections but the sun came out for the race and everyone enjoyed the weather!

The race is in a fantastic site and thanks must go to Lord and Lady Scarbrough for allowing us to use their grounds for the event. Next years event should be even more fun as we aim to use more of the lakes and rivers which we only scratched the surface of this year! well done to all those who took part. Well done to the winners and also to the winning fundraising team who managed to raise a whopping £1200+ (winning them a prize for highest fundraisers).

Thank you to everyone from 8point2 for ensuring that we had a fun, exciting and safe day on Sunday – our competitors are really up for doing it again and the competetive spirit has kicked in, whether they want to come in higher on the leader board or do a better personal time. It’s all good!

Well I was going to say I ‘enjoyed’ it…perhaps not quite the right word but it was good ‘fun’ and for such a great cause. I am proud of the personal achievement of completing the course (in quite a respectable time oh 1 hour 13 mins) as I was the kid at school that use to hate P.E. especially cross country and couldn’t usually do it anyway due to my asthma! I think I can safely say this makes up for all those years!

Thanks for a great organised event and do you know what, I think I may do it again next year!

I loved the event, it was personally challenging and came with the feel good factor of raising money for a good cause. Will be back next year. Well done to SAFE@LAST for getting it right again.

I’ve read some good stuff right here. Definitely worth book-marking for returning to. I surprise how much effort you put to make such a great helpful web site.
