Tackling one of the country’s most extreme assault courses was a Doncaster fundraiser on Sunday.

Fran Babirecki, aged 31, completed the Tough Mudder - a course designed by British Army Special Forces over 12 miles of terrain - in three hours and 40 minutes.

The event involves many elements of surprise - competitors having to lift their own body weight over a wall and climbing along 25 metres of monkey bars which have been greased

Fran took part to raise money towards restoration work at Doncaster Minster having spent several months there during 2013 on a work placement.

She said: “It was challenging but enjoyable. I had a smile on my face the entire time. I had prepared well, so I wasn’t sick like a couple of people I saw!

“I managed to do the ‘electric eel’ and ‘electroshock therapy’.

“Both these challenges have cables hanging from above charged with 10,000 volts. I had thought I’d be so full of adrenaline I wouldn’t feel it- wrong!

“I’m very proud of myself for having trained so hard, got through it and raised a healthy amount for charity.”

Fran has a target of £2,000, to donate to her fund visit the website https://www.justgiving.com/Frances-Babirecki/
