|Team "Radio Heads" Taking stage at the Dubai Hercules Trophy - March 2014|
Once we had got kitted up in our team costume (courtesy Adidas), the day started out with some brain labours - simple puzzles that we solved together as a team. We were so tired exercising our grey cells, we had a really huge breakfast, and then to burn it off, a fantastic group warm up session. The thrill of moving in a synchronized way with 1000+ fit people is something that has got to be experienced. It was really heartening to see all the participants from the 80 odd teams do the warm up drills.. man what a rush!
Post that we had a little impromptu parade kinda routine where each team took stage, waved their team flags and posed for the camera! Some photos are on the hercules trophy facebook page

Right after that we moved into the first set of Labours.
A labour is one of the 12 team activities/challenges that all teams must compete in. Its called a labour, after the 12 tasks the legendary Greek hero Hercules had to carry out to please the Greek god Zeus. The different labours require varied levels of stamina, strength, problem solving abilities and skills. Descriptions and photos of the 12 Labours we had are here - On the Hercules Trophy Facebook page
