Bring on the Big Battle with Helen Rollason Cancer Charity!

Lyons Hall Friends Association

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity are inviting the brave and courageous to take part in our brand new Big Battle challenge on Saturday 29th September 2018.

The 5km course will test your endurance, speed and strength, all in the name of charity. A personal trainer will escort and encourage groups of participants around the course which will see you take on the famous Nuclear Races obstacles including the 15 lane Zip-wire into water and 20’ free-fall Deathslide. Have you got the nerve?

Participants should expect an ultra-muddy and obstacle-loaded course from Nuclear Races who are well known for delivering award winning races with high quality obstacles that will test your fitness as well as your nerve. Held at the The Event Village, Parsonage Farm, Ongar Road, Brentwood, opposite the Secret Nuclear Bunker in Kelvedon Hatch; the event is open to individuals and teams aged 13 or over.

Our inaugural Big Battle challenges all levels of fitness ability and ages, testing courage, determination, teamwork and physical strength. Based on permanent farmland with mud, woods, rivers and lakes, Big Battle pushes participant’s limits over a fun combination of big and small obstacles. Hot drinks and snacks will be served at the end of the event.

Janet and Charlie from J C Designs Ltd in Braintree are two brave participants taking on the challenge!

Janet Peacock, 63 from Braintree said “We are really looking forward to taking part in the very first Big Battle event for the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity. My husband, two daughters and granddaughters who are four and six will all be coming along to cheer me on. I’ve been preparing for the challenge by eating a lot of cake and painting my toenails; what else do I need to do!?

It’s completely out of my comfort zone but I’ve set myself the challenge and I’m determined to complete it. It is so important to me that I support the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity which is so close to my heart.”

Charlie Spires, 24 from Witham added “We will be sticking together through the whole event to encourage each other along – we are a team outside of work as well as inside. My fiancé Abbie will be rooting for me on the side-lines, as well as other family members and our colleague James.

My family and I are currently going through our own cancer journey, which makes it even more appropriate that we are supporting Helen Rollason Cancer Charity. They do such incredible work in the local community, supporting those with cancer and their loved ones. We are just happy to help contribute to the running costs of their free, invaluable service.”

So expect to enjoy a muddy memorable time, to get wet, dirty and to #LoveMud for Helen Rollason Cancer Charity!
