On Sunday 7th February Cooper Technology took part in the Xtreme Challenge at Catton Hall in Staffordshire and really pushed themselves to the limit! Marianne Rolland, Kirsten Grafton, Joe Lomax, Craig Shaw, Dan Weston, James Bacon, Peter Grafton and Craig Walker took the plunge (literally!) and completed the 10 K run, tackling both natural and man-made obstacles on the way including wooden and electric fences, chest deep freezing water, steep inclines, endless amounts of mud and the ferocious winds of Storm Imogen.
Craig Walker managed an impressive time of 1:02:17 and came 33rd out of a total of 223 participants. Kirsten followed with a time of 1:17:16, Joe came in at 1:26:33 and the others finished only a few minutes after each other. Dan’s time of 1:40:23 is particularly impressive as he didn’t do any training at all leading up to the race!
Below are some of the best pictures from the day.
