Sunday 19th May is D-Day (or should that read M-Day?) for our intrepid team of 4 individuals who will be taking on the formidable Love Mud Challenge in aid of the fantastic charity, Agents Giving.
Katy Poore and Danielle Thordal from our St Ives office, Declan McGuire from Royston and Robert Owen from St Neots will be attempting to raise at least £750 for charity by completing this truly gruelling task to be held at a secret bunker estate in Essex.
The course is 7km in length, comprises over 50 obstacles and should take approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete.
‘I’ve never done anything like this before’ said Robert Owen from St Neots. ‘It actually looks like a lot of fun, though some of the obstacles do look a little daunting!’

The challenges facing our team of four includes zip-lines across open water, 120 metres of gorilla bars, and lots, lots more, including the ominously named…. Death Slide!
The infamous “Death Slide” awaits the team from Thomas Morris
But it’s not just the four members of our ‘elite team’ that can enjoy the fun. Spectators can watch the whole thing (including various attempts at the Death Slide LIVE on a massive screen!) by joining them for the day. Parking is free of charge, though a small fee of £2 per spectator will get you in to the event which includes a wide range of food outlets, a bouncy castle and stalls, live bands and plenty more besides. It promises to be a great day out for all the family. Here is the location:

Of course, there is a very serious side to this whole event, and that’s to raise money for charity. That’s why we’re asking for sponsorship, no matter how large or small a donation… it all helps.
Agents Giving supports a wide range of registered charities, both large and small. They include We Are Macmillan, The Trussell Trust, Help for Heroes, Magic Moments, Alzheimer’s Society and Centrepoint.
I’ve no doubt that this will be a big challenge’ commented Danielle Thordal ‘ but if we help raise money for good causes and have some fun along the way it will all be worth it.’
