Xtreme Challenge

4 Sep 2016

On Sunday 4th September 2016 Lodge Hill Centre near Pulborough, West Sussex, held their bi annual Xtreme Challenge at their 32 acre site in the heart of the South Downs National Park. This fun and testing race event was held to raise funds to continue the incredible support and assistance that Lodge Hill provides for young and disabled people. Over 60 competitors of all ages and abilities took part and chose whether to take part in either a 5K or a 10K or a gruelling 20k race. This challenging course consisted of various man-made and natural obstacles including chilling mud pits, flooded underground tunnels, a low ropes course and steep and unforgiving hills. This family orientated day was an incredibly enjoyable experience for all who were involved and all spectators were welcome to walk around the site to offer their encouragement and support. For those who preferred to watch, tea, coffee and bacon sandwiches were on hand throughout the day. Every competitor went home with a medal and a sense of pride at completing this gruelling yet thrilling course.

A huge thank you goes to all the competitors as well as competitors from Harwoods in Pulborough for their excellent turn out and support. 

The winners of the event were:

5K Mens – Harry Nye:

5K Ladies – Natalie Green

10K Mens – Sean Scutt

10K Ladies – Eveleigh McCarthy

20K Mens – Duncan Bennett

20K Ladies – Rebecca Gattenesi
