A team of employees from a Clitheroe care home will attempt one of the toughest military obstacle courses later this month to raise funds for two worthwhile causes.

The six-strong team who work at High Brake House Care Home, Chatburn Road, consists of Mark Brierley, who is part of the management team, and care team members Tyler Spencer, Dannie Pires, Emma Robertson, Lauren Bentley and Laura Grainger.

The Born Survivor event takes place on September 21st at Lowther Castle in the Lake District.

It consists of 40 extreme obstacles, 10km of brutal Lake District terrain and 1,000 ft of climbing.

Described as “the ultimate military obstacle course” it has been designed by elite British Royal Marines Commandos.

And participants are warned to train for the highest walls and the longest tunnels of any obstacle event. There will also be mud and more mud, river crossings, bottomless bogs, “the Killer K” which is 10 obstacles in one kilometre, monkey bars, scramble nets and “the bomb hole”.

The team will be out and about in Clitheroe over the next few weeks raising money for its two chosen charities, Clitheroe Foodbank and Alzheimer’s Research.

Anyone who wished to make a donation can visit the team’s JustGiving page which is listed under “High Brake House born survivor page”.
