Two businesses based at Harborough innovation Centre came together to raise funds for a good cause.

Zest Communications and Code String took on the Reaper 10km mud and obstacle race challenge on Saturday, March 22.

Employees from the two firms climbed, ran, swam and jumped their way over 26 obstacles and managed to complete the course in less than an hour-and-a-half.

Reaper Events, which organised the day, is also based at the centre.

Zest Communications and Code String were supporting county hospice chairy Loros. They haveraised £565 so far.

Zest Communications director Libby Langle said: “I am incredibly proud of us all. We are not athletes in any way, shape or form, so we really were a bit worried about taking on this challenge.

“We thoroughly enjoyed it though and have already signed up to the next Reaper event in October.

“Raising money for Loros was an added bonus and made all the bruises and sore muscles worthwhile.”
