A group of Penticton women fulfilled an item on their bucket list by participating in the Freak’n Farmer Adventure Obstacle Race at Covert Fams in Oliver on Sept. 24.

9 Tuff Udders and 1 Mad Cow Udder dressed like cows from head to toe and completed the recreational 10-kilometre course organized by HooDoo Adventures.

It didn’t matter to the team how they placed or if they beat anyone, only that they finished.

We did it together and ultimately we rose to the top,” said Sue Lionello, the 1 Mad Cow Udder. “Our team won the Spirit Award over 700 competitors and it was an honour to be awarded such a meaningful trophy.”

“We were very excited, very honored,” said team member Donna Kingzett. “What we noticed through the course of the day was the team work. Helping each other. Everybody could come together and help each other and how fun it was to help.”

9 Tuff Udders and 1 Mad Cow Udder brought a variety ages as well as skill level and fitness to the table. Lionello said together they conquered the crazy obstacles and their fears.

I have never been so proud to be part of a team,” said Lionello. “The essence of truly supporting one another; helping one another; laughing and cheering each other onwards, was something I will remember and cherish for a long time.”

Lionello described the obstacles as innovative, challenging and a ton of fun, even if this was the messiest, muddiest, craziest, funniest thing they had ever done. The group tackled more than 30 obstacles that included scaling walls, crawling on their bellies under barbed wire and through mud, getting through the vineyard of death; got the slingshot in one try and did the truck drag.
