A woman from Stamford takes on her biggest challenge yet to help raise money for charity.
Obstacle course enthusiast Laura Try, has set herself a number of endurance challenges to prepare for a 36 hour endurance race taking place next year, whilst helping to raise money for the Evergreen Care Trust.
The race titled Judgement Day - The Unknown will take place in Wales next September and will push the limit of Laura’s physical, emotional and mental wellbeing,
Laura took on her first endurance challenge last Wednesday at Rhino’s Gym in Stamford where she walked a 26.2 mile marathon wearing a 10kg weighted vest on a treadmill.
Ladies from the Evergreen Care Trust came along to the event to help support Laura throughout the day.
The event was a success with Laura completing the marathon in less than seven hours, in which she even ran the last mile.
Laura said: “Given that the challenges are going to be uncomfortable, I thought it would be great to raise money and awareness for Evergreen Care Trust.”
Owner of Rhino’s Gymnasium, Nick Swan said: “Laura was one of our first gym members to join when we first opened, the progress she has made is fantastic - she is really driven. It was a great event for the gym and all of the members got involved cheering her on throughout the day.”
