Taking on the Manchester Rough Runner!

Taking on the Manchester Rough Runner!

Earlier this year we updated you on how Square 1 Products planned to support the MS Society throughout 2017. Square 1 Products are making a huge effort to support the charity throughout 2017, and numerous members of our team are tackling some huge challenges along the way, from climbing Snowdonia, tackling the Colshaw Hall 10k to now taking on the Manchester Rough Runner! 

The Manchester Rough Runner is our fourth big event of the year in aid of the MS Society in which over the distance of the course our team face an obstacle course challenge, combining distance running with a variety of obstacles along the way, each inspired by game shows such as Total Wipeout, Takeshi’s Castle, Gladiators, and Fun House. The course also includes a huge 40m slide, giant pigeon battles, sweeper arms, big balls and yes, the famous travellator!

Lee Wilson, Phil Charlton, Andy Steward and Simon Cummings will be taking on this fun but challenging course on behalf of Square 1 Products. The team has put in plenty of training to physically prepare themselves for such a big challenge, to give the Manchester Rough Runner their absolute all.

There will be some incredible challenges through the epic gameshow inspired tasks and possibly times of saying, “well this looked easier on TV” from the team. We’re sure they’ll get stuck in and the team will be doing their utmost to get to the finish line! Come on Boys!

It’s a fantastic way to raise awareness for the hard work the MS Society do as well as being a big challenge for our team. To support Lee, Phil, Andy, Simon and their huge challenge you can donate through our JustGiving page. It's simple, fast, and totally secure. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. Over the course of this year Square 1 Products aims to raise £5000 for the charity through various internal activities and challenges, with some really pushing our team to their max.

The MS Society is an exceptional charity that can help and support those who have been affected by the condition. It’s going to be a huge challenge for Lee, Phil, Andy and Simon tackling the Manchester Rough Runner but one they look forward to. Square 1 Products wish the whole team the best of luck, we know they’ll give it everything!
