Post Event Update 

2 May 2016

9am - the team are together, pretty much all of us are Bluefinians (work for Bluefin Solutions) and we are raring to go.

9:15am - Adrenaline pumping, music blasting as we hop, skip and stretch near the starting line with a really dodgy DJ strutting about. 

9:20am - Bang- We’re off! The day looks glorious, the sun is out and most importantly it isn’t too muddy… yet. I’ll stop using times now as it’s all a blur after this point! 

We’re 1 mile in and we saw a pretty challenging obstacle, climbing over a wall three times our size. Once we got over that, I came to regret complaining about the heat, when we closed in on ‘Arctic Enema’. A terrifying obstacle, where you jump into icy, freezing water! One by one our team slid down into the water, screaming as we dunked our heads under the floating tyres and come out the other side in complete shock. We kept running in the extremely challenging Reading hills, into the final stretch. With this course of 12 miles, we were all exhausted, but the famous obstacle of electrocution was yet to come. With a Zap here and a scream there, we all bravely ran through this obstacle of hanging electrical wires… crossing it with a surge of relief, happiness and pride crossing the finish line. A beer, t shirt and headband were handed to us as we crossed it… about bloody time! The team was absolutely brilliant, and I cannot thank them enough for their brilliant contribution and for raising over a thousand pounds (and thanks Bluefin Solutions for doubling that!)

5 May 2016, Bluefin Team

On a beautiful May morning, a squad of like-minded individuals from Bluefin decided to endure the arduous task of taking on the Tough Mudder course.

Armed with weeks of gruelling training and of course paying for themselves to participate in this challenging course, they began their adventure.


Each obstacle was more difficult than the last but their support for each other at each hurdle was amazing to watch. Highlights were jumping into a freezing ice bath (only to come out and run another 10 miles) and getting electrocuted just before the finish line!

Bluefin can be proud of our amazing individuals. They raised over £2000 for One Kind Act, for which the charity are truly grateful. Destitute people around the world, who have had their lives affected by efforts such as ours, hopefully may be comforted in the knowledge that we are ready to make a difference!


Event Details

Tough Mudder Challenge is as an 11 mile obstacle course which is famous for its incredible test of mental and physical strength. From barbed wire crawling, to climbing massive walls (and getting electrocuted… if that isn’t enough, ) this course is not for the faint-hearted

12 Tough Mudders (Karun Soni, Hannah West, George Whitby, Nathan Adams, Chris Gully, Jack Clark, James Hale, Amy Widdicombe, Sally Jones, Lesley Elliot, Sarah Martin, Tom Edwards and Sully Hussein) from Bluefin, a SAP partner in the UK, will be participating in this event and hope to become real Tough Mudders in support of One Kind Act!

Great work Bluefin. I was lucky enough to witness these amazing people giving their time and money for our worthy causes on the tough mudder course Watching their preparation , which was months in advance , it was very emotional to witness them do this taxing course. To have such insight into working towards deserving causes at such a young age, shows amazing strength of character. Rita Soni. Associate at onekindact.org Well done guys.

An amazing challenge and thanks to all at Bluefin for raising money for One Kind Act. We have just finished a building in Tanzania for children with disability and are working on several other projects around the world. With your support you have made a difference!
