Mind over Mudder

Earlier this year we are delighted to inform you that the Savills “Mind over Mudder” team took part in the Ice Breaker Challenge on 15th February at Eastnore Castle, Herefordshire and raised almost £2,000.

The Ice Breaker Challenge, a severe winter duathlon, included a 10 km mud run over the Landrover off road testing tracks, followed by a 20 km mountain bike course and then to finish them off, a 3 km run around the lake.

A very big thank you to all involved.
