After a brief conversation in the school playground I have been persuaded to take part in the Major Series event at Bramham Park in March.
The Major’s Northern event is held in the stately grounds of Bramham Park, near Leeds. The grand home sitting in the centre of the Estate is a sight to behold, but the Major’s troops are more interested in showing you the multitude of muddy bogs, thick woods and river crossings that surround it – as well as the infamous giant slide, spider’s web and the dreaded ice crawl – a real treat for you tough Northerners!
This is not what I would consider fun, but is being used by the school as a fund-raising event with approx 20 parents and staff taking part to raise money to further develop the outside garden area of the school. Supposedly a 10k, run with obstacle in the way, but based off what people have spoken about these events its a period of running, followed by a period of standing around at each obstacle waiting for your turn.
But it’s a for a good cause.
