Energised Round Up: Survival of the Fittest, Hawaii Ironman & Paris Half

It was a busy weekend for Team Energised as usual with some great adventures, wonderful results and lots of mud!!

Team Energised went to Nottingham to race in the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest Race – a brilliant, amazing race!

Team Energised consisted of Antony, Ross, Fred & Kim with Lucy and Joe the dog as chief supporters.

The 12km race set off in the pouring rain with 10 crazy obstacles to overcome throughout the route!  So much fun – climbing over giant hay bales, carrying sand bags, crawling through tunnels, swinging off high walls and whizzing down slides into the River Trent!  Amazing fun, challenging & a great Team Event.

Antony whizzed off, used to fell running races he was so fast! Coming in 2nd man home in our Wave 2 – Big Well Done Antony.  Fred and Ross raced well too, and our Head Coach Kim came 2nd out of the ladies in Wave 2 – overall we are not sure where Team Energised ended up but we had a great time and would highly recommend the race. In 2012 we have lots of Team Energised interested in taking part and will run some training sessions by popular request!
