Extreme challenge for St Michael’s

St Michael’s Hospice is recruiting determined individuals and teams who are looking for a challenge to take part in the upcoming Dirty Dozen Race at the Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, Kent next Saturday (April 18).

If you are looking for the ultimate challenge this year, then Dirty Dozen Races is perfect for you.

The gruelling obstacle race is designed by ex-British Special Forces with military style obstacles, strategically combined with challenging terrain to test agility, strength and endurance.

It is an obstacle course to test even the fittest of participants.

All race participants running for the hospice can use discount code SMH to receive 10 per cent off.
