Equity Solutions staff will be entering a couple of teams into this year’s Winter Urbanathlon event in Manchester.
Building on the success of the summer Urbanathlon event held at SportCity, Manchester, the 1st winter Urbanathlon is being held at Platt Fields Park, Rusholme, Manchester on Sunday 27th November 2011.
Organised by The Sports Enterprise Challenge, the distinctive 5k race is based on a format made popular in New York and Chicago in which competitors negotiate a series of man-made and natural obstacles around the Urban Park setting. With exciting and whacky obstacles such as climb the rock wall, tackle the fire-fighters slide, vault the scarp cars, tackle Shelobs Lair, with great spectator points the 2011 Winter Urbanathlon is certain to prove a massive success.
The Equity Solutions staff will be raising money through sponsorship for the Helping Hands Trust, a charity providing assistance to people in times of hardship whether in the UK or overseas.
