Five Retirement Division Regional Managers brace themselves for the Tough Mudder Classic

The hardy souls in FirstPort’s Retirement Division have taken raising money for Centrepoint, the charity which supports homeless young people, very seriously.

The photos below show them suffering electric shocks during a 5km warm up for the Tough Mudder Classic, which is held in West Sussex in September.

“The Tough Mudder Classic has 25 obstacles over a ten mile course,” explains Roger Bodden, Head of FirstPort Scotland and member of the national team. “Centrepoint is our corporate charity partner and we wanted to do something fun for this great cause and show a bit of grit in the process!”

“That said, we’ve all lost over a stone in weight preparing for the Tough Mudder. As you can see from the 5km event we did recently it’s not just about wallowing in mud, but helping each other complete the course. It’s fair to say once you’ve experienced ‘Arctic Enema’ and ‘Electroshock Therapy’ together you’re ready for anything.”

The Regional Managers have set up a fundraising page if you would like to support their efforts to raise money for Centrepoint.

They have just nine weeks to get fully fit. Wish them luck!
