Four MBA International Management students took part in this year's 8 Task Challenge, which took place in Rutland on Saturday April 9. The event consisted of a 3 mile run, two mental challenges, then a 12 mile cycle, two more mental challenges, and finally canoeing. More than 125 university teams from all over the UK and Ireland took part, and there was a total prize fund of £8,500.
MBA students Divyesh Amipara, Tabbish Mahmood, Ahmet Vurgun and Sam Groves did their best but unfortunately did not win any of the prizes.
