Your chance to get muddy and 'Push It' for the Peace Hospice
9:50am Friday 31st August 2012 in News
Thrill-seekers, fun-loving friends and competitive colleagues will be heading to Cassiobury Park on Sunday, September 23, to take part in the Peace Hospice ’s newest fundraising challenge, Push it for the Peace.
The event offers participants a unique, five mile obstacle adventure, all under the watchful eye of military minders from Territorial Army units across south west Hertfordshire.
The TA soldiers will be on hand to guide and motivate runners through the course.
Peace Hospice event manager Nicky Maxwell Braithwaite has been working with ex-military physical training instructors Darren Glennister and Mark Chamberlin from Bootneck Bootcamp in Bushey and Sergeant Ian Smedley, Army recruitment officer from the Army Careers Office in Watford, to develop a course which balances both challenging and fun elements.
Darren said: “You don’t have to be super-fit to take part in this challenge, just willing to get a bit muddy and push yourself for the Peace. The course will be tough but great fun.”
Nicky added: “The hospice must raise £3.8 million this year to continue providing free services to local people so I’m encouraging everyone to support the hospice by signing up for ‘Push it for the Peace’ and have some fun in the mud.”
The event is open to men and women of all fitness levels, aged 14 and above. Entry costs £20. To register visit www.peacehospice.org.uk or phone 01923 335365.
