Will you go the ‘Whole Hog’ for East Anglia’s
Teams and individuals are being challenged to go the ‘Whole Hog’ for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The Whole Hog is an annual obstacle course and mud run taking place for an 11th year on Sunday, 15 October at Wantisden Hall near Woodbridge.
Participants can expect to be scrambling over cargo nets, through tunnels, climbing up steep banks and walls, wading through rivers, swinging across monkey bars and much more.
As well as the Whole Hog, a five-mile course for beginners, there will also be a more arduous and challenging ‘Boss Hog’ taking place over eight miles.
Ian Bliss, one of the organisers, said: “Each course is tough, fun, wet and wild! We guarantee lots of obstacles, lots of mud and lots of water. It will be the biggest staging of our Whole Hog to date and we’re delighted that EACH will be benefiting.”
The events usually take around one-and-a-half to three hours to complete. Runners will go off in three waves at 10am, 11.30am and 1pm.
There will be prizes for first, second and third individuals and teams for both men and women.
Hannah Walker, EACH Suffolk Community Fundraiser, said: “The Whole Hog sounds like a brilliantly fun way to test yourself in extreme conditions. We can’t wait to see how people will fare slogging their way through the mud!
“A big thank you to the organisers for choosing to support EACH this year. The money will make a massive difference, helping to provide care for local children with life-threatening conditions and support for their families.”
The earlier teams and individuals sign up the more they save, with those who register before 31st August charged £43 for the Whole Hog and £48 for the Boss Hog. Those who want to support EACH should make sure to tick a box indicating they would like a donation to go to the charity.
