Recruitment consultants from Cardiff get down and dirty for charity
The Dirty Dozen Race took place on Saturday 11th July in Monmouthshire and the IntaPeople team joined hundreds of enthusiastic racers to take on this challenge. This race consisted of 20 military style obstacles and a 12K run which saw the IntaPeople team get wet, muddy and extremely sweaty, all in the name of charity.
Victoria Wood, South Wales divisional lead, IntaPeople said, “It was a great day despite being tougher than last year. The Dirty Dozen Race was mentally punishing from the moment we set off with so many steep hills to walk, run and climb, especially when the sun was beating down on us.
“Only two of the team completed the monkey bars without falling in the muddy water. I personally struggled with the under-barrel swamp swim, but managed it eventually. We all worked in small teams to ensure everyone crossed the finish line together. It was a really testing challenge but the whole team was spurred on because we were doing it for a very worthwhile cause.”
