NMBS tackles beast of a challenge

The Head Office Team from NMBS have gone to impressive lengths in support of a number of different charities.

 

A group from across the business, including MD Chris Hayward, who was keen to lead by example, recently took part in the Wolf Run – a fun run with a muddy, wet twist.

 

The only wild run in the UK, the Wolf Run champions the sport – and the spirit – of wild running. It enables participants to experience the excitement and challenges of running freely through raw, natural terrain. Combining off-road running, mud runs, trails and even obstacle runs, its 10k course takes in open ground, woodland, water crossings and thick mud.

 

The NMBS runners took part as team ‘NMBS Wolverines’ and ran in the autumn Wolf Run on the 3rd September. This was held at Welsh Road Farm outside Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. Each Wolverine was sponsored to complete the course by colleagues, friends and family members and chose their own recipients for any money raised.

 

In total, the Wolverines collected in excess of £2,300.

Speaking on behalf of the Wolverines, Chris Hayward, said: “The Wolf Run was one of those events that left everyone involved absolutely exhausted but proud of themselves and of the wider team.

 

“We’re all delighted that we completed it and that we’ve collected so much money for so many worthwhile causes.”
