Four brave ladies from Temple Recruitment in Northampton very bravely signed up to compete in a 5km Color Run obstacle course in Milton Keynes on 3rd June 2017. We asked how their day went and Amy Stockley, Office Manager at Temple Recruitment gave us this very ‘colouful’ report!
“We had planned on a big training regime and even bought a running machine for the office. However, work got a little bit busy so we weren’t all in peak physical condition by the time the day came around.
The race itself involved four of us throwing themselves over giant sized inflatable obstacles, running through foam pits and crawling under a maze of ropes, all while having tonnes of coloured powder thrown at them as we ran around the course.
It was an incredibly hot day and one of the team had stayed up a little later than they should have the night before. (no names mentioned!) That said, the girls did incredibly well and overtook some of the earlier runners as they negotiated the course!
The low point was having to inhale large amounts of multi-coloured powder whilst crawling face down on the ground under a low obstacle. The high point was that all four members of the team reached the end upright and in one piece and the most important part was that we had great fun whilst raising £736 for the Lighthouse Club Charity”
Thank you so much to Team Temple, Claire Griffin, Amy Stockley, Ricia Jones and Kelly Burdett, you are our Color Run Charity Champions!!
