MET Marketing Tackles the Major’s Amphibious Assault!
Back in the heady, long days of summer, we here at MET Marketing thought it would be a great idea to do an Amphibious Assault Course in October. What says team building more than rolling around in mud getting wet and cold in October?!
As the day loomed we all kept an eye on the weather forecast and were pleasantly surprised to find that we would have an unseasonably period of warm and dry weather, pre-hurricane Ophelia. So, we all headed to Brahmam Park at 10am for our 10.45am start time. Weaving our way to the site we were met by groups of people covered in mud, dripping wet and slowly jogging through the woods. In truth most looked like a Stag or Hen do that had taken a wrong turn and the lead Stag or Hen was now in serious trouble!!
The beauty of the course was as you arrived you could not see any of the treats that awaited so you could naively run off thinking ‘it doesn’t look that bad’. We were called to order by ‘The Major’ (think a character from an Agatha Christie novel) and put through various warm-up exercises to make sure we were ready for the upcoming assault!! Air horn and firework send-off was soon followed by Press Ups, Squats and Burpees before heading out into the country.
Next came the fun bit, 5 miles of mud, water, lakes, rivers, swamps, climbs, lifts and throws. Between Gary and his hang-over and Ed with his calf strain, we took around two hours to complete the course. It was a great day and with the warm conditions, the mud and water were fantastic fun. We are now back in work on Monday with softer skin and some fun memories of our day in the mud at Bramham Park.
