Willow Warrior 2015 - certified tough

Mud was definitely the main component of the day, and the tough obstacles pushed even the fittest team members to their limits. One unlucky staffer even lost a shoe just one kilometer into the race. But, in true RLD style he still managed to complete the other nine kilometers in full force.

Here’s a shiny ‘before’ picture:
