Ely based branding company, Soopa Doopa’s Jake Scott-Paul and friend Matt Lucas recently undertook the Obstacle Course “Rush” put on by Nuclear Races.
While putting themselves through the mill with over 52 obstacles and 7km of running, they thought it would be a great idea to raise money for the charity Action on Addiction. This cause is particularly close to the heart of Jake Scott-Paul who is coming up to two years free from alcoholism.
The course had every obstacle you could imagine from hang tough, mud baths and swimming, to zip lines, tunnel crawls and death slides. To top is off there was a total 7km of running, while covered head to toe in mud!
The pair raised over £800 for this great cause and Soopa Doopa kitted them out so they could be easily spotted in their hot pink tops.
Jake said that “while we are doing this for a bit of fun, we felt it was a great opportunity to raise awareness around addiction, that affects so many people. It shows that recovery is possible”
