UKCS manager Vicky Roberts recently took part in a Race For Life ‘Pretty Muddy’ event in Nottingham.  Vicky completed the 5K obstacle course (mud included) along with friend Cath, raising money for Cancer Research whilst having plenty of messy fun.

Like many of us, Vicky and Cath have friends and family affected by various forms of Cancer.  Vicky describes the day in her own words:

It was a cold, damp day and we were layered up in pink ready to run! Although we started with a brisk run once we found the first obstacle we slowed down!

Obstacles included a net A frame, mud pit, muddy water baths, elastic spiders web, path through the woods, muddy space hoppers, muddy tunnels and a finale of an inflatable mud slide..

..I don’t think either of us expected to get quite so muddy based on a previous Pretty Muddy. It took me four shampoos to get the mud out of my hair!

Race For Life includes a variety of women-only, non-competitive events such as this with the sole aim of fighting cancer in all its forms.

Congrats to Vicky and Cath for getting through it, we trust the mud was eventually washed out!
