Six weeks and counting....

Our intrepid team of professionals are gearing themselves up for the Rocksolid on 21st March 2015. The course has been published and there are some "interesting" obstacles within the race that include a lot of mud, water and daring do! Oh my, there should be some interesting pictures to add to our gallery; you may see some of the professionals as never anticipated BUT it is all for a good cause, your cause and to raise the profile of bowel cancer. What other way would you want to spend  a Saturday other than with your colleagues clambering over, under, and through all manner of obstacles   (30 in just over 5 kilometres) that just happen to be located on, in or near mud and water!! Keep up that training guys, we are behind you, ok maybe with a strategically placed camera or two but hey, all for a good cause.

If you would like to sponsor the team then please call 01823 342452.
