Six intrepid mums and staff from Horringer Pre-School are in training for a gruelling 10k muddy obstacle race to raise money for a new building.
The pre-school’s Acorn Project, which aims to raise £200,000, will be supported by the six-strong team, who have christened themselves the Muddy Mummies.
The group will tackle the Insane Terrain obstacle race on Sunday, September 24, at Washbrook Farm, Doddington, near Cambridge, which features hay bale climbs, pond wades, waterslides and a Maize Maze.
Claire Whiting, team captain, said: ““Some of us have never run before and none of us have ever done an obstacle course, so this is going to be a real challenge.”
Stephie Page, pre-school manager, said: “We are very grateful that the Muddy Mummies are going to all this effort to raise money for the pre-school’s Acorn Project and we look forward to cheering them on.”
