Raise funds for disabled veterans in Warrior Run


How would you like to take part in the south coast’s toughest obstacle run? On Sunday October 11, the second Warrior Run of the year will take place in Albourne.

You can choose from a 7km, 14km or 21km course, with over 30 obstacles per 7km lap. You’ll be crawling through nets, climbing walls, smashing through swamps, throwing yourself over dirt mounds, hauling logs and tyres, making your way through webs and tunnels, and splashing through the ditches and streams that make up the course.

This year, the Warrior Run has chosen The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home (QAHH) as its charity of the year. If you confirm your entry via QAHH, your entry fee will be donated to the Worthing-based charity, and will go towards the care and rehabilitation of disabled ex-Servicemen and women at the home.

Stewart Gillespie, Marketing and PR Officer at QAHH, completed the Warrior Run in April this year. He said: “I am a keen runner, but I had never done anything like this before. I still can’t believe how much I enjoyed it! Yes, it was tough. But the excitement and adrenaline completely took over, and I smiled throughout the whole course! I would recommend Warrior Run to anyone.”

Entry via QAHH is just £25 per person (half the normal price), and you can run as a team if you’d prefer. To confirm your place contact the QAHH fundraising team on 01903 218444 or fundraising@qahh.org.uk. Visit www.qahh.org.uk
