Two tough obstacle course races took place in the north west on Saturday. The first was the Liverpool Pretty Muddy 5km, which was held at Sefton Park. This was part of the Race for Life breast cancer charity runs but with a twist, this race was a 5k muddy obstacle course where women of any ability can “climb, jog and walk all over cancer”, whilst wearing pink.
Meanwhile, the Spartan Race took place in the 600 acre Heaton Park, Manchester, giving competitors lots of space to run, climb and crawl over and under obstacles and through mud. There were two different race distances over the two days; the sprint distance of 5 km, which had 15 obstacles and the super 13 km, which had 20 obstacles. The heavens opened around lunchtime on the Sunday, making the course better or worse depending on your love of mud. It is suspected that there were fewer competitors in pink at this event.
Congratulations to all our clients who took part in those events. Those of you who participated in any race in the heat (or the mud or the rain) at the weekend or had a long, hard training session may have, or will have tomorrow, sore legs, arms or backs. A sports massage is a great part of the recovery process; don’t forget that recovery is as important as training! This will help to reduce those aches and pains and ensure that you are refreshed to start training all over again for that next exciting event. Finally, please don’t leave any niggles or injuries in the hope that they will go away; it is always better to get them checked out as soon as possible. Our experienced physiotherapists can put your mind at rest.
