Rat Race

Our pontoons really can be used for any number of uses, in fact back in May one we hadn’t even thought of approached us. Gorilla Marketing & Events approached us regarding the supply of some pontoon to be used as part of The Rat Race – Dirty Weekend at Burghley House in Lincolnshire.

The plan was that as part of a 20 mile, 200 obstacle challenge, the competitors were going to be faced with an 80 metre open water swim, broken up by 5 platforms of pontoon acting as ‘hurdles’ that racers would have to climb up onto and re-enter the water from.

Always up for a new challenge, we were more than happy to help and using slightly ramped pontoons and grab lines to aid the competitors when climbing, 5 ‘hurdles’ were successfully added to the course.

The Winner

The obstacle certainly provided us with some great photos as the above image shows, incredibly the winner of the whole event Jonathon Albon completed the whole event in 2 hours 34 minutes, that’s 20 miles over obstacles, in water and running in 2 hours 34 minutes!
