Will Survives the Rat Race Dirty Weekend

Will Survives The Rat Race!

Congrats to our own Will Wood, Head of Pre-Sales at Datasharp Integrated Communications, who took part in (and survived) the ‘world’s largest obstacle race’ on Saturday 11th May.

Rat Race Dirty Weekend - Will Wood

The Rat Race ‘Dirty Weekend’ took place in the grounds of Burghley House near Stamford and included 150 monster obstacles over a gruelling, half-marathon distance.

The day before the event, Will said:

“I’ve never run this distance before, let alone with so many obstacles, so I’ve trained hard to make sure I don’t let anyone down”.

By taking part, he raised a tidy sum for his chosen charity Children With Cancer UK. To date, this huge event has raised a total of over £1 million for the charity.

After the race (once he’s got his breath back), Will commented:

“Turns out it was longer than advertised at 14.4 miles! I’m fairly battered and bruised, but am happy everything went to plan. The whole thing took over 5 hours in the end!”

Well done Will!
