Adrenaline Rush event in Leeds will push you to limit

Have your say

Thousands of fearless fitness fanatics are set to descend on Harewood House in Leeds when it plays host to a new endurance challenge later this year.

The Adrenaline Rush race is taking place in the grounds of the stately home on Saturday, October 17.

Entrants will tackle a series of intimidating obstacles over courses of three lengths – 5km, 10km and half-marathon.

Each obstacle is known by a different name, with Pitlane Hell, Water Torture, Dead Weight and Bungee Time among those that could be put in place at Harewood House.

And organisers Inmotion Sport are confident their decision to bring the event to Leeds for the first time will prove the right one.

Graham Anderson, one of the directors at Inmotion Sport, said: “Entrants in Leeds are going to have a lot of fun.

“We’ve worked with fitness and obstacle experts to design a unique assault course that involves everything from jumping onto a stuntman’s airbag, climbing through mud pits, dodging water bombs and even taking the ice bucket challenge.

“If you love a physical challenge and a muddy day out then this event is right up your street.”

Macmillan Cancer Support will benefit from Adrenaline Rush’s visit to Leeds, with 25 per cent of each entry fee going directly to the charity.

The Yorkshire Evening Post is a media partner of the event, which is also held in other places around the country such as London, Glasgow and Manchester.
