I was contacted at the back end of last year by a family friend who fund raises for the Herts Air Ambulance charity, with what she said was a strange request!
To cut a long story short this year The Gauntlet Games obstacle course is supporting Herts Air Ambulance and Cancer Research UK and they were looking for “Gladiators” to participate in the experience, and the first people she thought of was Paula and myself!
Of course, it’s for a great cause, my sister (Kerry) works as a paramedic on the Midlands Air Ambulance and I hear all the time about the great work she does, so I was all over this!
The Gauntlet Games
The Gauntlet Games is a hilarious obstacle course race. To successfully complete the challenge, run 5K or 10K, taking on a series of obstacles, and challenges against real Gladiators!
Forget pain-inducing runs and challenges, the Gauntlet Games is all about having a giggle – what better way to spend your Saturday than bouncing, sliding and fighting your way through all kinds of crazy challenges with your friends?
This is your chance to become a gameshow hero. Sign up and regret it never.
– Real Gladiators (Including myself and Paula, the husband wife team and she’s tough trust me!!) challenging you around the course (We’re all friendly, I promise!)
– Huge rope swing onto an air bag to finish in true Gladiator style
– A giant slippery slide
– Climb, Splash and Crash in the water zone
– Giant Inflatable zone complete with foam
Here’s a few pictures from a previous event to give you a bit of flavour as to what to expect, looks good right?
