River Rat Race 2016

Do you sometimes we need that little extra motivation to help you work a little harder? Do you want to help the people around you? Do you want to challenge yourself?….

If the answer is yes to any of these question you might want to join The Fitness Room Spartans and start raising money to help local charities, people and community projects. We at the Fitness Room have set up a community fundraising project. Through sporting a physical endeavour and challenges we will be raising money to support our local community. Our first challenge is The Stockton River Rat Race on August the 20th.

We are looking for 10 people to join our Fundraising Team. On the 20th of August we are taking part in the Stockton River Rat Race; a 10k Urban Assault Course. Our team will be raising money for Alec Syphas a local mini superhero that suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy making everyday of his life a challenging as running this Assault Course. Are you willing to put your body through a 2hr test of strength and endurance to help Alec?

We have set our team a target of raising £2000 to help Alec. We have secured 10 starting places for our team at the discounted entry fee of £28 per person (current entry fee is £45). To join our team you don’t need to be super fit you just need to be ready and willing to raise some cash and test yourself physically at the Rat Race. If you want to take part please get in touch via the Contact Us button or send us a message on Facebook.

If you can’t take part we will be organising other events throughout the year to help Alec and other local charities.

You can learn more about our local hero Alec from this article written in the Sheffield Star at the end of last year.

Other Events we plan to take part in over the next year – Are you ready for the challenge?
