ABOUT 300 people tackled a 10km obstacle course for charity.

The Whole Hog Challenge was held on the Hambleden Estate and involved participants scrambling up steep hills and wading through muddy water.

They were raising money for Ronald McDonald House Charities, which provides free “home away from home” accommodation for families with children being treated at specialist hospitals across Britain. It is hoped the event raised about £30,000.

Nicola Savage, fund-raising manager, said: “We had a fantastic turnout and were delighted to have individuals, corporate teams and families we have accommodated in the past taking part.

“The best part about this event is that it gives people from all walks of life the opportunity to take part and encourages teamwork with the common cause of raising funds for families with seriously ill children in hospital.

“This is the fifth year that Ronald McDonald House Charities has run the challenge and we hope that next year it will be bigger, better and muddier than ever before.”

The winning team was called Team Economics, from Havi Global Solutions in Hayes.
