Hope you're all well!! Today my blog is to write a review of Survival of the Fittest obstacle race in London....
So on Saturday 23rd July, Hannah Bailey and myself took part in the amazing Survival of the Fittest event at Wembley Stadium!!
We left Norwich super early and had a great drive straight in to Wembley stadium, car park was perfect and we were nervous but very excited to be taking on this massive event! The weather was absolutely scorching and we were in the 11am wave so knew we were gonna be boiling!!
So the time had finally arrived and after a quick warm up we were off, in temperatures of 26 degrees.... The first part of the race was lots of running around the amazing Wembley stadium with a few small ish obstacles thrown in! The organisation was fantastic, marshalls were brilliant too - so encouraging and always on hand with water sprays to cool you down!!
Due to the hot temperatures the event put on an extra water stop too!!
So after lots of running around the stadium, a water slide and running through a storm drain (which was not good for my claustrophobia) we were heading back to the village area for the main obstacle section!
The rat race obstacles did not disappoint at all - Monkey bars, space hoppers, a massive water slide, huge cargo nets, the biggest wall climbs ever, a rope climb and a whole load of other obstacles!! But my favourite two obstacles were the Stunt man air bag jump and the fabulous Travilator that made me feel like I was taking part in the Gladiators TV show!!!!
Massive thanks to Hannah for racing with me at the last minute, you were fab! But absolutely gutted for Jenny Henry too who couldn't race due to injury! Also lovely to meet Jojo from the Mudd Queens too!
So all in all a superb event which I definitely want to take part in again next year..... My upper body hurt so bad the next day though after completing the monkey bars and rope climb which made my year!!
