A fitness group from Norwich will be taking on one of the world's most extreme obstacle courses this weekend in aid of charity.

The team of 17, from Boot Camp Fitness, will be taking on Tough Mudder, a 10 mile mud and obstacle course, on May 20, to fundraise for the Break Charity.

Owner of Boot Camp Fitness Lee Ashford said: 'We have been training specifically for this in our outdoor sessions by recreating the obstacles we will be facing on the day. We have been crawling through cargo nets, carrying heavy corn bags and jerrycans when we're running and different ways of working as a team so we should be prepared.'

Break provides support to young people in care, children and young people with disabilities, families in need of support and children who may be at risk.

They hope to raise more than £2000.
