Mark Johnson of London endured waist-deep mud, skyscraper hills and burning calves to run in aid of The British Asian Trust in the British Military Fitness 10k race last October. “I ran for The British Asian Trust because I know my donations will make a difference for people struggling to escape poverty in South Asia,” said Mark.
“I underestimated the difficulty, it was intense,” said Mark. A relentless downpour the night before made the course “super muddy.” The worst part, according to the programmer for New Brand Media, was the ‘steeper than steep’ hills. The best part — finishing which he did in 63 minutes.
“It’s a definite sense of achievement,” said Mark following his first 10k obstacle course. “Mark’s effort is a brilliant example of how individuals can get involved to make a real difference to grassroots poverty in South Asia” said Madhu Rajesh, Trust Development Director.
