The Challenge Continues
In 2013, NGA's Goondiwindi based Trials Agronomist Rachel Norton successfully completed the Sunshine Coast Tough Mudder
fitness challenge. After much teasing - and the odd bit of coercion - it was decided to enter an NGA team in the 2014 event.
Unfortunately a remote wedding and a 'sniffle or two' meant only half the team participated with the photo below showing Linda Bailey, NGA's Darling Downs based Trials Agronomist, Nicole Carrigan, NSW DPI and Richard at the end of their extremely muddy ordeal.
To make up for their non-attendance, NGA's Brendan Burton together with Rachel and her husband Leigh, participated in the 21km Spartan Beast at Ipswich. They claim it made Tough Mudder look like a walk in the park ! Not to be outdone, Brendan's young daughters, Matilda and Lila, completed the Kids Spartan race.
