Mud, mud, glorious mud for Team Stobart Rail & Civils

Scrambling over obstacles, diving into water and running through mud, a team of Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice and Great North Air Ambulance fundraisers will take on the ultimate test of stamina this September.

On Saturday 21 September, a team of fundraisers from Stobart Rail & Civils will join thousands of people tackling a range of obstacles during Born Survivor at Lowther Castle.

Lauren Douglas, Business Development Officer at Stobart Rail & Civils, said

“We are so excited for this year’s Born Survivor; the team are busy outside of work getting some training done in preparation.”

Everybody taking part in Born Survivor will have their own reasons for attempting the challenge. Whether it is to raise money for charity or simply to complete the course, they will all be united as they overcome the obstacles.

Born Survivor is the UK’s ultimate obstacle course designed by Royal Marine commandos within the stunning backdrop of the mighty Lowther Castle. The 12km course will feature more than 30 obstacles and tons of mud.

Kirk Taylor, Managing Director at Stobart Rail & Civils, said

“We’re all relishing the challenge, the rewards are tenfold, improving our health and wellbeing, personal and shared satisfaction, more importantly we’re raising money and awareness for two fantastic charities, we can’t wait to get stuck in.”
