Team tackles 10k wild run to raise money for Cancer Research UK

Press release

In just over 2 weeks a pack of adventurous TBA Leicester ‘wolves’ will be taking on the famous Summer Wolf – the most popular event in the Wolf Run calendar.

The team has spent the last few months preparing for the 10k wild running event, which combines mud, trail and obstacle runs in the ultimate test of mental and physical strength, skill and stamina. They’ll tackle open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud on the land surrounding Stanford Hall in Leicestershire on Saturday 2 June.

While the event itself will be a day of teamwork and hilarity, the team are also participating in support of a greater cause. In the final months of 2017, a colleague at TBA Leicester was diagnosed with cancer and has been off work battling the disease ever since. It is in her honour that the team are raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Cancer Research UK is a nationally recognised registered charity with the ambition ‘to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years’.

Summing up the ethos of the TBA Leicester Wolf Pack, veteran Wolf Runner and service delivery lead Sam Tomlinson said: ‘We are rooting for you to beat the Big C, Kerry! Keep fighting, be brave and kick cancer’s butt!’
