‘Blood, sweat and tears’ made award win possible, say axe-throwing venture founders

An award win for innovation to an axe-throwing venture was the result of 16 months of blood, sweat and tears, say its founders.

Valhalla North is the UK’s number one independent axe throwing venue, owned and run by husband-and-wife Carl and Kat, the IATF highest ranked male and female in Europe.

The young venture won the Innovation category at the 2022 Make Your Mark Awards, held in association with Husqvarna at Redworth Hall Hotel.

“There’s literally blood, sweat and tears gone into the last 16 months, so it’s nice to see it pay off,” said Carl.

“We’re absolutely blown away to win this. We came into it thinking ‘it’s fantastic to be nominated but even if we don’t win anything, we’ll still have a great night’.
