Charity team to tackle the Spartan
A TEAM from Fordingbridge will be among those competing in this Sunday’s Spartan race to raise funds for charity the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT).
Nicola Arcedeckne-Butler, Tim Parsons and Simon Jones will be running in the race, which takes place at the West Midlands Water Ski Centre in Warwickshire.
The Spartan Sprint is a testing 5km race with ten or more obstacles, ranging from fire jumps to barbed wire crawls and other army-style challenges.
This is the second year the trust has been represented, and the organisers hope to raise even more than the £6,000 achieved in 2012.
Mel Dellow, the GWCT’s events organiser, took part in the 5k event last year. She said, “I wanted to duck out, I admit it, but powered on by the enthusiasm of my fellow Spartans I’m going again. I’m both proud and amazed that more than 40 people will be running for us.”
