A charity which provides care and support throughout West Suffolk and Thetford will once again hold a fun 5km obstacle event.

St Nicholas Hospice Care's Battle of the Knights challenge raised £14,000 in March.

Such was its success, the number of participants for 2018 will be doubled to 400.

Held at The Playground in Barrow, near Bury St Edmunds, on March 18, the charity challenge will see waves of 50 participants complete a 4km run before tackling 25 obstacles strewn across a 1km course.

Participants can enter as an individual or as part of a team. The first 200 places are priced at £25 with the further 200 places priced at £30 until February 15. Places after that date will cost £35.
