The obstacles are designed to challenge everyone, and needed teamwork to overcome them. One obstacle for example was a large plastic tube suspended above a muddy lake, which required team members to rotate it in order to spin someone over the top of it to progress. The bitterly cold weather and wet obstacles also meant we had to make sure we all kept moving, and encouraging each other to do so.
We helped each other round, stuck together and conquered it. A great experience for sure, but more importantly than that it was great to see our team not only willing to push themselves through such a challenge, but to do it with a together, supporting and encouraging each other.
The adventure ended with beer and burgers around an open fire in the event village, after putting on some very soothing warm dry clothes, ahead of the journey back. It was amazing to see the team get their teeth in to this unfamiliar and intimidating challenge. I think being able and willing to step up to difficult tasks and give it your best is a massive display of character.
