The south-west gets its rush on
Already a hot-bed for fitness, the South West welcomes a new assault course to the mix this weekend. Adrenaline Rush is an urban assault course from Inmotion Sport and Macmillan Cancer Support, that aims to test both ability and nerve.
The high voltage, non-stop, energy-packed obstacle race, which is open to entrants of all abilities over the age of 17, has already taken place at a variety of venues around the UK this year including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, Pollok Park in Glasgow and Heaton Park in Manchester. with 25% of the entry fee going to Macmillan.
Each event will include:
- mud pits and trenches
- water pits and chutes
- ramp walks and jumps
- dodging flour and water bombs
- plank walks and rope crawls
- trapezes and bungees
As well as the obligatory mud, Adrenaline Rush also mixes it up with signature obstacles including “Leap of Faith” – a 15ft jump into a stuntman crash matt; “Freight fright” – a fight through a pitch black container as your senses are blasted and “Ice Ice baby” – a dip in a giant bucket of ice.
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.”
Adrenaline Rush comes to Blaise Castle, Bristol on Saturday, August 15th. For more info visit TheAdrenalineRush.com
