Cumbria to hold UK's first beach obstacle race
Last updated at 14:10, Thursday, 04 April 2013
Cumbria is to host the first obstacle race in the UK ever held on a beach.
The obstacle court will go up at St Bees with competitors challenged to run, walk and crawl over it during the St Bees ‘Beach Bash’.
The challenge, in aid of two local charities, will be the first one on a beach and organisers say the three-mile course along will follow on from next month’s Hell on the Harbourside stamina event.
The Beach Bash, in August, costs £20 to enter and, just like the Hell on the Harbourside, places are limited.
Participants can enter online at www.sientries.co.uk and can take part as a team or individually, with all participants receiving a T-shirt for finishing the course.
When registering for the event, competitors can choose which charity they want to support – either Hospice at Home West Cumbria or Cash for Kids.
It’s a non-profit making event and, after start-up costs, all proceeds will be donated to charity.
Hospice at Home provides help to hundreds of people every year.
Its nurses provide 10,000 hours of nursing care to over 200 people at the end of their lives. However, it also provides support to hundreds of their family members through informal support groups, complementary therapies and one-to-one sessions. All of these services are free of charge.
