Father & Daughter duo smash the crazy, muddy and amazing Airfield Anarchy Epic Weekend Challenge in support of Autism East Midlands
Airfield Anarchy is an acclaimed mud run with obstacle courses aptly named the Epic Weekend challenge. The event was held on 10th -11th June 2017 at Winthorpe Airfield in Newark, Nottinghamshire. The father and daughter duo, Martyn and Jessica Boden, decided to jump in at the deep-end to do complete all three runs that make up the ‘Epic Weekend’ – and to fundraise for Autism East Midlands in support of a young family member.
Autism is something we, as a family knew very little about, until the youngest child in our family was diagnosed with it last year, little Ollie. This challenge was incredibly demanding both physically, and as strength diminished then mentally. We both woke up Sunday morning, injured from the 5K & 10K events on Saturday but were determined to also complete the 10 mile obstacle run, especially spurred on by the £1k in sponsorship, we had something to live up to! By the end of the 10 mile event on Sunday we had given everything we had and were well & truly spent! As well as the fundraising achievement, there was also a great sense of personal achievement, that not many dads & daughters get to achieve together.
The money raised from this event will support us to continue offering services which help to meet the needs of children and adults with autism, their families and professionals working in the field of autism.
We would like to thank Martyn and Jessica Boden for their great effort in raising these funds for us.
