Could the GS Team be Facing Their ‘Toughest’ Challenge Yet?

The GS team has its work cut out.  No… not grappling with code governance regulation (though that is not without challenge!) but perhaps the biggest challenge to date; Tough Mudder 2018. On 28th April, 2018, some of us will be taking part in ‘Tough Mudder London West’ https://toughmudder.co.uk/events/2018-london-west-half-weekend-1 which involves taking on a gruelling 10-mile obstacle course through the mud, designed to test every ounce of our physical strength and mental endurance. Are we mad?  Quite possibly.

On a serious note though, we decided to embark on Tough Mudder in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, as we know first-hand what incredible work it does for families in the UK, during difficult times.  Some of the GS team were affected by cancer last year, through someone in the family.  Those team members unanimously agreed that the help and support they and their families received through the charity was second to none.

With that in mind, we felt compelled to do something significant that challenged us, and as a group.  Tough Mudder was an obvious choice!  If you are interested in seeing just how ‘tough’ this challenge actually is, take a look at some of the challenges 2018 contestants will face:
