The team crossing the finish line.

Last Friday a group from Peel Energy joined over 500 people in taking part in MediaCityUK’s Urban Challenge. The challenge was set around a 6km assault course in Salford Quays and included a fair amount of grueling obstacles. The team managed to navigate through a sprint carrying sandbags, wooden hurdles, plastic pipes, monkey bars and a giant inflatable slide into the docks followed by a 100m meter swim.

The course finished with a 15ft wall climb, which was not for the faint of heart.

A day that started in the rain, finished in the sun with the whole team making it across the line together and in one piece....just. It is safe to say that some of us are now proudly supporting some substantial bumps and bruises!

Congratulations to the members of the team that took part and completed the course, and thank you to MediaCityUK and JLL for making the event happen.

Can’t wait for next year…
