It’s been described as the most extreme 10k adventure race – and it’s coming to a Northumberland beauty spot.
Hardy souls are being encouraged to enter the Norse Challenge 10k, labelled an event like no other.
Staged at Druridge Bay Country Park, participants will battle their way through mud, crawl under barbed wire, go down a mud slide and tackle other obstacles.
The Sunday, July 28, challenge has been created by a team of like-minded adventure race enthusiasts.
But while it has been designed to be tough, the course will be manageable and people of all fitness levels are being encouraged to take part.
The challenge is open to individuals, as well as teams of five or 10.
Prizes for teams include best fitness, best pub, best costume, the fastest, and best team work.
Spectators are welcome and there will be stalls, children’s entertainment and a barbecue.
The event will start at 9.30am with the first wave, followed by waves at 10am, 10.30am and 11am.
It is open to anyone aged 16 years and over, but under 18s will need to bring a parental consent form.
