Lynn’s own Mr Motiv8r has raised around £2,000 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers by entering his team of 15 into the Spartan Race in Cambridge.
Ex-Royal Marine and owner of Motiv8 Exercise and Fitness, Mark Flowers, said: “It was tough for some of our members, especially the 5k over rough terrain. There was barbed wire, ice pits, 12ft walls and barrel runs. It was something that nobody had ever done and was a massive achievement for them.”
Mr Flowers was inspired to help the charity by training the team for the tough obstacle course and run, and hopes to continue to do so with another charity challenge.
He said: “ I knew Lee and helping this cause was fantastic. A lot of the competitors have been bitten by the bug now and want to try something bigger and better.
“We’re looking at doing something like the Norfolk Steeplechase.”
