Earlier this year a great bunch from Evolution Leisure took on the Tough Guy Challenge in nearby Perton.
Club Manager Reece Crooke wanted to publicly thank and acknowledge the amazing team that took part and raised a huge amount of money for charity.
“A massive well done to over 30 of our staff and members who competed in the Tough Guy challenge – a 15km course, dubbed the “Full Brutal Jacket”, which included more than 250 obstacles said to induce “extreme fear or panic”. All in aid of raising money for Compton Hospice, so far we are up to over £2000.
Competitors tackled barbed wire, trenches and even fire in the event, which takes place in freezing and muddy conditions every winter on farmland in Perton, near Wolverhampton.
It was a fantastic day, which was the climax to all the effort and training sessions over the last 3 months. As a team we pulled and pushed each other over the line and beyond…. even dressing and showering the ones who the cold had just got too much for! There was a great team spirit and an experience i will treasure for some time. The support we had was unrivaled so thank you to all the other members, friends and family who can to cheer us on. Each and every member can be proud of the effort the showed tackling one the hardest assault course in the world. The way people have conducted themselves and dedicated much time and effort before, during and after the event is truly humbling. We are extremely proud to have you as members, Sunday afternoon proved one thing more than anything else that we’re not just a team, we are a family. Now for the next one”…… Reece
