North West Air Ambulance Charity throws down the gauntlet

THE North West Air Ambulance Charity has been announced as the nominated cause for the 2016 Gauntlet Games and event organisers are calling for people from across the region to crawl, swing and slide their way through a wacky obstacle course, in an effort to keep the charity's helicopters in the air.

The Gauntlet Games takes place in Manchester's Heaton Par, on Saturday, 3 September 2016. 5km or 10km of inflatable, water and climbing obstacles stand between the start and finish lines, with real Gladiators to compete against. Obstacles to negotiate include the 'Flume of Doom' water slide, rocking see saws and even a joust pit.

With no time limit, the 5km race is suitable for participants of all fitness levels, and is billed as a hilarious day out for friends and family, with the 10km option throwing in some extra challenges.

Participants who choose to compete as part of the North West Air Ambulance Charity team receive exclusive discounts, as well as raising vital funds to keep the charity's fleet flying 365 days a year. They also receive a T-shirt, water bottle and medal to wear with pride.

Linda de Sa, Challenge Events Officer at the North West Air Ambulance Charity, says:- "The Gauntlet Games are a real 1 off event and we're thrilled to have been selected as their nominated charity. When else will you get the chance to try out such a brilliant range of obstacles; all while raising money that goes straight to save lives all over the North West? Last year, we flew over 2,000 rescue missions throughout the region, funded entirely by public donations. We encourage anyone who's looking for a day out with a difference to join our Gauntlet Games team now and be part of a truly lifesaving adventure."
