Umber Creative's super team of staff, friends and family are taking part in the Royal British Legion Major Series - a muddy 10-12km run through a military obstacle course - crossing rivers, crawling through mud and climbing cargo nets under the watchful eye of Drill Sergeants from the British military.
We want to raise funds for the wonderful Hull based charity the HEY Smile Foundation. A charity that has helped countless people, charities and projects in our local region. Including; Children with disabilities, Inshore Rescue, Down Syndrome, Memory Loss, Nursing and Respite Care as well as many others. www.heysmilefoundation.org
The event of our Umber Mud Run will take place on Sunday 20th March 2016 at Bramham Park, Leeds.
The lucky 10 brave runners who have volunteered are: Kara, Kevin, Luke, Anna, Am, Roxanne, Neil, Amy, Roz & Joanne. More runners may join the team as we get closer to the event.
"The Major's Northern event is held in the stately grounds of Bramham Park, near Leeds. The grand home sitting in the centre of the Estate is a sight to behold. However, the Major's troops are more interested in transforming the multitude of muddy bogs, thick woods and river crossings that surround it into the biggest and best course yet.
As your legs run across muddy trenches, through cold-water lakes and wild terrain, your imagination will also run wild as you are immersed in each amazing obstacle zone. Rest assured, the Major’s hand-picked, 40-strong platoon of elite troops will be lining the course to support and guide you with a smile, yells of encouragement, and a helping hand along the way. Remember, this is the Major’s muddiest course, so strap those boots on tight!"
