What’s the dirt?
Fidus Mud Heroes 2014
Fidus has 8 Guiding Principles; one of which is “Fit and Healthy”. In an effort to stay on par with our principles, 11 Fidus personnel made up our team for the 2014 Ottawa-Mud Hero obstacle course. On May 31st, 2014 our team got down and dirty when we ran a 6km race through a muddy forest complete with water passages and 20+ obstacles.
The anticipation built up as our team members lined the start line ready for action… the DJ counted down our wave of 150 people; then bam – we were off! We climbed walls, treaded through swamp water, trudged through mud pits, slid down fire poles and slides into marshy water, and wiggled through tunnels… needless to say, we experienced it all and we had a blast!! Every team member completed the race with a smile on our face. We are very proud to have completed the course with our friends/colleagues by our side cheering us on and helping us to overcome the challenging obstacles. GO TEAM!Fidus has a great team; the Mud Hero obstacle course proved that as a team we are unstoppable.

*Note: We spent the next 3 days in the shower, and we’re still finding sand in places it doesn’t belong!
