Gung Ho is a 5k fun obstacle race and we are doing this as a goal towards getting fit, loosing weight, and raising funds for Dementia Awareness, and hopefully having fun along the way!!

- The financial cost of dementia to the UK is £26 billion per annum.
Last year I (John) attempted a color run of same distance and it was fun but I learned I am one of the most unfit people I know as couldn't manage 3 minutes without having issues and ended up walking quickly most of it but the inflatables were fun. So that's me and my general fitness although I do like to trampoline and swim regularly it doesn't seem to help with running.
We both have never really ran, we are both in our 30s, and we both want to make a difference. We are starting from scratch using any help we can get and as an added bonus we get to raise money for the alzheimer's charity as we both know people who are struggling with it and believe their organisation can help others too. It is also an extra motivation for us too.
We would really appreciate your support in this, in motivation as I don't doubt one bit this will be even harder than I think but also to support our chosen charity as well.
