No Ego Challenge puts East Lancashire entrants to the test
3:07pm Monday 16th September 2013 in News
THERE was mud, sweat and tears as teams competed in one of the world’s most gruelling events.
Competitors battled through a testing 10km obstacle course at Brockholes Nature Reserve, designed to push them to the limit.
The race, the first of its kind, took place at the Samlesbury nature reserve on Saturday.
Organiser Brian Lee said: “We encouraged people to work as a team, help each other over the obstacles and enjoy the camaraderie of taking part in this new type of adventure race.
“There were chipped timed waves for competitors if they wished, but the majority of people did the race for fun, to raise money for charity or for personal achievement.”
The No Ego Challenge was different in that, although there was a competitive edge, it was more about trying to complete the race and cross the finishing line.
Those taking part were asked to ‘leave their ego at home, get muddy, wet and sweaty while having fun’.
Based on a muddy 10k army assault course, the No Ego Mud Challenge tested competitors’ stamina, strength and agility.
The course contained 25 obstacles including ‘The Mangle’, ‘Tunnel of Mud’ and ‘Getting Tyred’.
