FitMix Race Squad is made up of both experienced runners and those who have started running for the first time after getting involved with FitMix classes.
FitMix Race Squad is now often out in force at Mersea, Maldon and Colchester Park Runs. Our younger members too take part in the popular Maldon junior park run every Sunday morning.
The Race Squad is open to everyone of all ages and abilities to enjoy road racing, park running and mud obstacle racing. Come and join our inclusive friendly team.
We had our first outing in May 2014 at Insane Terrain obstacle race in Ipswich and since then team FitMix has been represented at many running and obstacle races all over the country, including:
Maldon and Colchester Park Runs
Muddy 5 in Colchester
The Gauntlet in Braintree
The Oxford Half Marathon
The Colchester Half Marathon
Dirty Dozen Races
Rock Solid Races
The Paras 10 (Highest finishing female team!)
Endure 24 - team FitMix came 3rd with 150 miles!!
and many more.....
Achievements as a team also include the annual appearance at the epic 6 or 12K Nuclear Rush race which sees a team of FitMixers complete a course involving 85 separate obstacles. For many of the team this is something that they would never have dreamed they could achieve before becoming involved in FitMix
. Have a look at this video of our adventure.
Team FitMix also raised £1,645.87 for the Anthony Nolan Trust. A 23 strong team completing the Mucky 5K in Colchester.
