The Swanbourne Endeavour

Please Share:

Yesterday (Sunday 23rd October) 6 brave souls from K International competed in and survived (with only minor injuries) the Swanbourne Endeavour. In the picture above (from left to right) you’ll see, Dave, Jana, Paul, Yvette, Rich and Brian standing next to the bell from HMS Victory which we rang when we completed the race.

Held in the beautiful grounds of Swanbourne School and with patriotic music blasting out of the sound system we ran, crawled, swam and slid our way around the course.

It was all for charity and we raised over £500 for Fundacion Comunitaria de la Frontera Norte, support to Territorial Army soldiers, the Royal British Legion, the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association and Amara.

In total, we recon we ran 7k cross-country and if that wasn’t enough the organisers had us… wading through ponds 4 feet deep, submerged in muddy water, crawling under 50 metres of barbed wire, crawling under nets, crawling through flooded tubes, leaping over burning straw, climbing over 8-foot tall walls, carrying logs and getting the muddiest we’ve all been since we were 6 years old. It was great fun.

Running through rivers, carrying logs, crawling under nets and running over fields were just some of the things ‘the admiral’ had in store for us.” Thanks to everyone who sponsored us, thanks to everyone who took part and BIG thanks to the organisers – it was a truly amazing event.

Hope to see you there next year :).
