Last Friday was our last event of the year which was an abseil for Children In Need from the Marks and Spencers buiding in Pudsey. In all we had around 50 members of staff complete the abseil plus a few notable others including the local conservative MP!

It was a great event and a nice way to finish off the year! Well done to all those who took part.

Suffolk Whole Hog Team Race
November 7, 2011, 12:48 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

Yesterday was the day for the team race!

With just over a 100 teams competing it was always going to be a busy day but after the success of the individuals day we were confident of another good day. The course followed pretty much the same route as the individuals race but also included a team challenge which involved dragging concrete posts around a short-circuit!

The race started well with the competitors making good times around the earlier section of the route. Unfortunately, unbeknown to us, somebody had tampered with an early section of the route which caused some of the leading teams to go off route! However, the mistake was soon rectified but the course tampering resulted in some strong teams losing much time and their rightful places in the race! We were obviously hugely disappointed about this and are still trying to get to the bottom of who might have removed the vital signs and tape. Needless to say it was very disappointing for the faster teams!

However, the race continued and the hole was plugged soon after it had been made meaning that the majority of teams were soon following the course as it was laid out. There were a number of good times made yesterday including another sub hour result from the leading all mens team! Another excellent time! It was a great effort from all of those teams that took part – especially those of you who did the extra loop. Big thanks once again to the Fitness Unit who sponsored the event. Thanks Guys!! Until next year!

Suffolk Whole Hog – Individuals Race
November 7, 2011, 11:54 am
Filed under: Uncategorized

Our first individual race at Wantisden, Suffolk was a great success. As it was its first year we didnt expect high numbers but those who did come brought some quality and speed with them. The course was, as usual, a fast first half interpersed with a few simple obstacles. Then came the first proper area of wet obstacles including river crossings, the Hog Pit, Tunnel of Love and the digger trenches. A short lap was then followed by the monkey bars and the Bomb Crater. Another short run led on to the Tunnels and a further river crossing.

The last few km took in the zip slide and then the cross country route over the hay bails and back to the finish!

It was an excelent fast race with Sam O’Neil and Alastair Wright both being the first to break the hour barrier!
