Several thousand people will tackle fire, ice, electricity and monkey bars this weekend when the Total Warrior event returns to Bramham Park.

Some 7,000 participants from 28 different nationalities will tackle 30 punishing obstacles over a gruelling 12km course.

Competitors will jump fire, tackle cargo-net climbs, crawl under barbed-wire, clamber over giant A-frames and plunge into icy water before they get to enjoy a giant, 40-metre long water slide.

This is the third year Total Warrior has been held at Bramham Park.
