It’s not often that you will find DK Fulfilment staff up to their necks in it. After all, we pride ourselves in being the best. However, there is always an exception and Saturday 5th September was that exception.
Eight of us from DK Fulfilment took part in the Wolf Run. For those of you not familiar with this event, the Wolf Run is Wild Running – a unique combination of three kinds of off-road running: mud runs, trail runs, obstacle runs and some swimming. It’s the only Wild Run in the UK, it’s a hardcore 10k run across raw natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes & thick mud.
Its not for the faint-hearted, which is why we chose this event to mark the start of our fundraising activity for our nominated charity, Turn to Starboard.
Lining up for our ‘before’ photo, we had little idea of what awaited us. However we were committed to the cause and therefore sported a brave face in spite of our fears.
It wasn’t long before we were off – running through woods, wading across muddy ditches, clambering over slippery obstacles, sliding down hillsides and swimming across freezing water. For me the worst was crawling through dark muddy tunnels (I’m sure I saw a rat!), but then I hate confined spaces and my imagination usually gets the better of me.
I’m proud to say that throughout it all and despite our different levels of ability, we ran and finished as a team, which sums us up really.
We are now all looking forward to our next fundraising activity. And if you want to help us on our way, you can donate via our Virgin Money Giving page
