Royal British Legion brings obstacle course to Tunbridge Wells

April the 9th will see Eridge Park near Tunbridge Wells transformed into a mud bath for the day, as an army of mud runners take on air, land and sea themed obstacles over both a 5k and 10k course. The Royal British Legion Major Series will challenge competitors with a variety of obstacles such as mud crawls, cargo nets and a vanishing bridge.

While many obstacle races are catered for fitness fanatics, The Royal British Legion Major Series is aimed at appealing to all students whatever their fitness level and the courses will be littered with troops to offer tips and encouragement.

The Major Series is the charity’s flagship muddy obstacle race and participants can choose to fundraise for the Royal British Legion at the same time. Money raised is used to help members of the Armed Forces community, from serving personnel, and their families live on to a more hopeful future.

If this sounds like your sort of thing then you are in luck, because the course returning to Eridge Park (about 50 miles away from Brighton) on October 1st. From April 9th onwards any potential competitors will be able to register Early for a reduced sign up cost of £35.
