'Suffering' Steve Cope raises £150
Steve cope raised over £150 by taking part in 'The Suffering' - a gruelling 10Km obstacle course at Rockingham.
Steve said "The day? Well I can see why they call it The Suffering! They could never be charged under the trades description act.
It actually was a great day and a great experience, regardless of how hard it was.
Luckily it wasn't too warm, a nice cooling breeze blowing up the
valley and occasional light rain that attempted to wash the mud and
blood from my broken body!
I plan on competing again next summer as I now have a personal best time to beat."
