Mud Challenge in aid of Essex Primary School

Both teachers and parents from Lavenham Primary School took part in the 12k challenge, otherwise known as ‘The Gauntlet’ located at Spains Hall Estate in Essex, in order to raise money for their school. The event; which took place in April earlier this year, includes deep mud, obstacles and swimming through water in a gruelling endurance challenge.

racingIt tells a good tale of parents and teacher united together towards a good cause. When it comes to educating their children, parents and teachers don’t always see eye to eye, so to see them competing together for charity is a sight for sore eyes.

‘The Gauntlet’ was hosted by Mucky Races, who strive to produce challenging obstacle courses that tests your strengths and weaknesses while keeping a fun and light-hearted atmosphere.

They host events throughout the country, with a number of upcoming events including the Muddy 5 & 10 in Colchester this July, and Mucky Mayhem in Suffolk in September.

Teachers and parents banded together to raise a total of £1174 for school equipment for Lavenham Primary School, with company Knight Developments promising to match fund the team’s JustGiving original online target of £500. It was certainly a successful day for everyone involved.
