A new series of energy-packed obstacles races is set to take place this summer in various cities across the UK. Adrenaline Rush launched by Inmotion Sport and MacMillan Cancer Support will feature 5k and 10k courses, with the option of entering a four-person team.
Each event will see competitors take on a variety of obstacles, including mud pits, trenches, water pits,chutes, ramp walks, dodging flour and water bombs, plank walks, rope crawls, trapezes, bungees and an ice bucket challenge
John Gladwin, director at Inmotion Sport and 1500m Commonwealth Games silver medallist, said: “Entrants to the Adrenaline Rush events are going to have a lot of fun. We’ve worked with fitness and obstacle experts to design a unique course which includes everything from mud pits to flour bombs, not forgetting Adrenaline Rush’s signature obstacles which include the Leap of Faith and the Fires of Hell. But don’t worry, you don’t need to have Mo Farah to complete it! The course is suitable for all fitness levels. I would urge people who love a physical challenge and a great day out to get involved and support a very worthy cause in the process.”
Events will take place in easy, accessible and central locations, with the following four events currently scheduled from May – August this year:
• London, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – Saturday 30 May 2015
• Glasgow, Pollok Park – Saturday 25 July 2015
• Manchester, Heaton Park – Saturday 1 August 2015
• Bristol, Ashton Court Estate – Saturday 15 August 2015
Joe McDermott, from Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Inmotion Sport to set up Adrenaline Rush. Although fundraising is not compulsory, every additional pound raised will help us reach more people affected by cancer.”
