If getting muddy, wet and dirty tackling a 5km obstacle course while raising money for children's hospices sounds like your idea of a good time, you might want to check out this event.

East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) is planning to run the course at Old Buckenham on September 23 as part of an event called Heroic.

Participants will have to negotiate obstacles including tyre runs, a double seesaw and scrabble nets.

Tal Williams, EACH fundraiser, said: 'We are really excited about the first Heroic event for EACH. The day is guaranteed to be a challenge, but also good fun and great for spectators too.

'All funds raised will be to enable us to continue supporting local children and young people with a life-threatening condition, and their families. We are grateful to our headline sponsor Bateman Groundworks for their support.

'This is an ideal challenge for individuals or groups and company teams. We have already had a lot of interest for the event and spaces are limited.'

The charity is also looking for volunteers to help on the day, call 01953 666767 if you can help.
