People in Hartlepool are set to take on a gruelling obstacle course as they look to raise vital funds for charity.

Twenty-one staff and members of Brierton Community Centre, in Brierton Lane, will take part in the Total Warrior event, raising money for Hartlepool & District Hospice.

I wish Scott and the Brierton Allstars the best of luck with this gruelling challenge

Janice Forbes, community fundraiser at Hartlepool and District Hospice

The challenge is in the form of a 12km obstacle course, and will be held at Bramham Park, in Leeds, on Saturday, June 27.

One of the obstacles, The Plunge, features a pool that is 20ft long and 4ft deep, filled with 10-tonnes of ice.

Human BBQ is a leap of faith over fire into a cold pool, while the Shocker will have hundreds of electric wires hanging from above, with competitors having to find out the hard way how well their wet bodies conduct electricity.

Scott Rush has set up the team, named the Brierton Allstars, and they are aiming to raise at least £1,000.

Janice Forbes, community fundraiser at the hospice, said: “I wish Scott and the Brierton Allstars the best of luck with this gruelling challenge.

“All the money they raise will go towards patient care services for people from Hartlepool and East Durham.”
