Whilst Mud Running has taken the UK by storm, there is one Buckinghamshire event that stands head and shoulders above the rest - The Swanbourne Endeavour is set to

return to the countryside in October.

The fourth challenge takes place on Sunday, October 18, with and event for all fitness levels, from 12 year olds to the elderly. More than 600 took part last year to accomplish running, climbing, crawling and dragging themselves around the bespoke course and this year sees an even tougher challenge for eager schools, individuals and running teams looking for some muddy fun.

Challenges range from the 5km Kids Endeavour up to the tougher 10km Adult Endeavour there is something to challenge the young and the old.

Organiser Tom Finchett said: “It is tough, it is hard and we always have a few little additional challenges up our sleeves to surprise new runners and loyal competitors alike.”

All the sign up fees are donated to charities: Medical Detection Dogs, SSAFA, The Royal British Legion, The Buck Services charity and The Puzzle Centre.

The event was the brainchild of Tom Fremantle, a member of the adventurous, naval Fremantle Family who have lived on the Swanbourne Estate, Buckinghamshire for hundreds of years. Using the concept of fearlessness from the history of the Fremantle family, The Endeavour is themed by “The Admiral” who behind the scenes sets new and challenging stages to anyone mad enough to participate.

The event is being sponsored by Oxfordshire Law company Henmans Freeth and supported

by other local Swanbourne businesses and will take place at the Swanbourne House School, Swanbourne.
