Are you up for the challenge?

Whatever your level of fitness or experience we’ve got something for you. We want to provide newcomers to each sport, an achievable goal and help them reach to reach it. We want to provide quality local athletes with interesting challenges. We want as many people as possible to use these challenges as opportunities to raise money for charities that matter to them. We’ll do our bit and donate money from your entry fees too. Finally, we want to create sustainable events that make the local community proud to support.

As each event gets closer, we will be running free support sessions for entrants. We will post details on here, nearer to the time.
