Here’s some information on Overload:

Overload Run – The ultimate obstacle course race. August 25th 2018 near Brailsford, Derby.

Overload is designed to be fun and build team work with 30 obstacles on every 6km lap, but don’t be mistaken into thinking its not tough, because if you decide to do more than 1 lap you will find out how tough physically and mentally it is as you run, walk, crawl and climb your way around our Ultimate Obstacle course.

The whole course is accessible for the spectator too and all obstacles can be seen, so bring along the family to watch you in action, oh and whilst you are challenging yourself they can get all refreshed at the onsite bar.

And if you have young ones who want to try out a full lap then that’s OK with us, we only charge £15 for under 16 year olds.

All runners will receive a unique medal and commemorative top for participating in the ultimate running weekend. More details can be found at www.overloadrun.co.uk

NEWS – NO BUSINESS LIKE SNOW BUSINESS

Scores of wannabe Santa’s descended on Lichfield (Sunday December 2017) and took on the challenge the annual Santa Dash held in the snowy freezing festive like weather to raise much needed funds for Queens Croft School in the city.

Stowe Field under the gaze of the city’s magnificent Cathedral witnessed the start and finish of the event, in between the Santa’s wound their way through the city centre streets and mingled with the crowds visiting the annual Christmas Food Festival.

Kevin Wilson of joint organisers KP Events praised the hardy souls who made the day so special; “ the weather was dreadful under foot and on the roads too but so many guys and gals and kids and dogs turned out to raise much needed money for a school that does fantastic work for youngsters in the city and surrounding areas who have a range of learning difficulties.
The atmosphere was fantastic and it felt like a proper Christmas Day!!”
