Challenge Events

There are many ways to help us support prisoners who can read to teach those who can't. Why not take on a challenge and raise funds to give the gift of reading?

We’ve teamed up with Run for Charity to offer a range of exciting events for you to take part in. For some events, we have a free place so it's always worth checking us with before registering.  

Here's some of the highlights in for 2017

Tough Guy Obstacle Race - Wolverhampton     

Tough Guy has been described as "the toughest race in the world"

Competitors are challenged to crawl through flooded underground tunnels, balance planks across a fire pit, and wade through half-mile of chest-deep muddy water (in January !!). There are many high timber towers to climb with the Brandenburg gate at 50 feet being the highest. Marshals, dressed as warriors, fire amphibious tank gun blanks and let off exploding flares and smoke bombs over the heads of competitors as they crawl under a 70-metre section of barbed wire. Do you think you are Tough enough?
