AudioGO set for “mother of all Mudders” charity challenge


AudioGO, the audiobook publisher, hopes to raise money for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) by taking part in one of the UK’s toughest charity challenges.

Members of its Sales and Marketing team will be enduring “extreme amounts of pain and humiliation” this weekend at ‘Tough Mudder 2013’.

The challenge – described as the one of the toughest events on the planet – involves a 12-mile long obstacle course designed by the Special Forces. According to its website, it tests “all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie” and has attracted 1million participants to date.

The AudioGO team include Rachel Josephson, Sales and Marketing Director; James Kent, Digital Account Manager; Kevin Johnson, Multiples Account Manager; Clare Harper, International Sales Manager; and Kate Doyle, Social and PR Manager.

Rachel said: “We have spent months running, bungeeing, burpeeing, squatting, lunging, kettlebelling, lizarding, crawling, lifting, pushing, hurting, aching, crying and generally putting ourselves through huge amounts of pain to raise money for the RNIB. All of this has been at ungodly hours of the dawn, sunset and weekends.”
