Residents invited to get muddy for St Francis Hospice

Active residents can get fit this New Year while raising money for a good cause.

St Francis Hospice is looking for fundraisers to take part in its Mud ‘n’ Madness challenge at Stubbers Adventure Centre in Ockendon Road, Upminster on Saturday February 9.

Lauren Josman, who works as the hospice events manager took part in the inaugural event last year.

She said: “It was a fantastic experience and a real challenge as you had to wade through muddy waters and climb over obstacles. It was very rewarding to complete the course and raise money for Saint Francis Hospice.”

Individuals and teams of three can enter the 7.5km challenge which involves a series of army style challenges over 1,500m, 800m on the water, a 1,400m run, river crossing, obstacle course, 2,400m run through a muddy course and more.
