SIX BROMSGROVE friends are planning to undertake a 10k Wolf Run in aid of the town’s Basement Project.
The group, who all grew up together in the town and attended Lickey End First School, have set out on a fund-raising mission.
The big event will be held on April 12 and the friends will have to overcome a number of man-made and natural obstacles through the off-road course including mud pits, fallen trees, boggy ground, ditches, hills and dense foliage.
They will even have to swim across a lake before they can reach the end of the course.
Organisers have said it tests competitors mentally and physically forcing them to run in a more primal and instinctive way in raw, challenging terrain.
Daniel Wilkes is the only member of the team with any experience, having previously completed the gruelling Tough Mudder which is a ten to 12-mile run with obstacles too.
Joining him will be Kelvin Daley and Vicky Moore – who are both teachers, Paul Moore – a headteacher, Nina Mozolakova – a youth worker and Simon Hall – a music technologist.
As a team the group will be helping each other to work through the obstacles and finish the run together, although many of them have admitted they did not know how they are going to cope with such a tough challenge.
