The crew spent five hours running, climbing, crawling and diving their way through the half marathon at Burghley House in Lincolnshire at the weekend.

Spokesman Tracy Harding said: 'It was tougher than we could have imagined. We never warmed up and we have bruises on our bruises.

'Even the fittest people were getting cramp, but we stuck together, and colleagues encouraged each other through to the end.'

Their efforts, involving 150 obstacles in the Rat Race Dirty Weekend event, raised more than £1000 for cancer charities, Bloodwise and Children with Cancer UK – chosen because many of the group have family and friends affected by the disease.
