Jonathan takes on gruelling mud run to raise funds for CSF Leak Association

We wish to extend a huge thank you to Jonathan Skinner and friends, who have been extremely busy over recent weeks fundraising for the Association.

Jonathan and colleagues collected donations at Currys PC World in Inverness on the 28th August.

And if that wasn't enough, a few days later Jonathan then went on to participate in the 'Prime Four Beast Race' on the 1st September along the banks of Loch Ness. Described as a leg numbing 10km run through dense forest, undergrowth, heather and bog, on rough dirt tracks and of course, into Loch Ness itself.... and that's not mentioning the 30 mega obstacles, which included:

THE MUD SUCKER - This bog promised to suck the shoes off the runner's feet.

THE LOONY DOOK - For participants mad enough to wade out into icy Loch Ness to tap the marker buoy.

THE LETTERBOX - Where runners posted themselves through a series of giant letterboxes.

HIT THE WALL - There was no easy way over the 12ft vertical wall.

BEAST BOG - Required participants to drag their whole bodies through mud soup whilst being pinned down by a huge net.

CHUTE - A massive 100m water slide.

Are you brave enough to give it a go next time to raise vital funds for the Association? For more information and pictures of the crazy obstacles, click here.

Thank you Jonathan and pals. We hope you have been able to get rid of the mud by now!
