On a mission - take part in the British Military Fitness 10K challenge

Are you ready to take on mud, steep hills, wet weather and army-style physical training to raise vital funds?

Test your fitness and take part in a 10-kilometre military style course organised by British Military Fitness on 27 October 2007 to help raise money for diabetes research.

Participants will have to face steep hills and negotiate natural obstacles such as muddy ponds, fallen trees, drainage ditches and even a swimming pool while former army officers keep their beady eyes on their progress.

The event takes place on 27 October 2007 in Redhill, Surrey and starts at 10am. Entry is £20 (£40 on the day) and people taking part will be expected to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.

British Military Fitness are the original 'military style' training provider. Set up in 1999 and now operating across the UK, they offer a unique way to get fit while having fun in the great outdoors.  More information about their activities can be found by visiting their website (see right).

There will also be an opportunity to win prizes for those taking part in the race: £100 gift vouchers will go to the fastest male runner and fastest female runner and a month’s free British Military Fitness membership will go to the slowest five men and women!

If you wish to take part in the event contact the Diabetes UK London regional office on 020 7424 1122 or
