Rubb Managing Director Ian Hindmoor and his wife Joanne lost someone very dear to them earlier this year. Jill Reed, a very close friend of Joanne’s, sadly passed away from breast cancer at the age of 36. Jill (pictured below right with Joanne) leaves behind a loving husband Mark, daughter Connie and son Luke. Now Ian and Joanne are taking on the Total Warrior challenge on June 28th to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Total Warrior is the pinnacle of obstacle racing, providing the most innovative and highest quality obstacle event in the UK. With around 30 punishing challenges provided over a 12.5KM all terrain course, Total Warrior also offers greater variety and more obstacles-per-kilometre than any other race. The Hindmoors have both been in training and Ian will be updating the Rubb blog with all their latest efforts in the run up to the event. Read all about it in his first post below…
There are now only 15 days to go until the Total Warrior Challenge.
We would be very grateful if you can contribute to this cause, which is very close to our hearts.

Day 2 – Continued
As more live demonstrations got underway the stand was quieter in the afternoon, however as the final hour of the show approached we had two excellent meetings that really put a spring in our step, that not even the notorious IDEX taxi queue could dampen. The plan for the evening was simple, gym, shower and then off to the Gala Reception (pictured below) for some networking.
Day 3 – Gala gossip
Again we completed an early morning gym session followed by breakfast and a taxi to the show. Gym sessions, two times a day, on top of a full day at the show are taking their toll, especially after the Gala Reception, but MD Ian Hindmoor is in full flow and and fully dedicated to his new healthy lifestyle.

Upon arrival at the show the visitors’ queue was out of the door again, which is always a good sign. It didn’t take long for our first visitors to arrive and Day 3 was officially underway. The footfall has been intermittent, which has worked quite well to help us get caught up on emails, walk the show and get to know our stand neighbours. The main topic today was last night’s Gala Reception at the Emirates Palace Hotel. It was an excellent event, nice venue, good food and good entertainment. The downside was that there was no seating, and after two gym sessions and all day on my feet I was ready for a comfy chair, but that could just be me getting old…
