DARING individuals are wanted by a children’s hospice to take part in a muddy fundraiser in Hampshire.

Richard House Children’s Hospice in east London is on the hunt for adrenaline junkies who will help raise money by taking part in Hell Runner.

The 10 to 12-mile route is described as trail running at its toughest and most enjoyable, with participants navigating twisting trails including the Hills Of Hell and the Bog Of Doom at Longmore Camp, near Aldershot.

Participants will be helping the hospice, based in Beckton, to continue its work with children who have life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Hannah Bosley, 23, a fundraiser for Richard House, has taken part in the run for the charity before and has signed up again.

She said: ‘The Hell Runner is 10 to 12 miles of laughter while trying to complete a course of challenging off-road running, including running up sandy dunes and through muddy bogs. I was nervous at first because I expected my fellow runners to be incredibly fit and keen runners, but the people there were just like me.

‘There to take part in a real challenge, to raise money for their charity and most importantly to have fun.’ Registration costs £25, and the minimum sponsorship is £100. Hell Runner takes place on November 10. Call Ben Alonso on 020 7540 0230.
