Health, Wellbeing and Sport clean up at Mud Run

Truro College Health, Wellbeing and Sport regulars headed over the border into Devon to take on the challenging River Dart Mud Run.

The HWS team was made up of staff and students who participate in the free physical activities offered by HWS every day at the College, which are designed to promote mental wellbeing and physical health.

The Mud Run event attracted over 350 competitors who completed either a 5k or 10k cross-country route through the forest, over obstacles, through mud, across rivers and up and down some very steep terrain. All team members completed the course battling through water-filled tunnels, log carrying tasks and deep mud.

Truro and Penwith College dominated the podium places, with six members of the team picking up age group category prizes in the two races, and also securing overall victory in the 10k race.

Julian Wills, HWS Project Lead, said: “We are delighted that the HWS programme has helped to change the lives of staff and students, providing them with positive experiences on a daily basis. The Mud Run was a fantastic day out, where we were able to undertake a challenging event together, yet still achieve individual goals.”
