Are you ROCKSOLID?
After a hugely successful 2016 the ROCKSOLID RACE is back on our fundraising calendar for 2017.
Muddy obstacle runs are taking the nation by storm and are now more popular than traditional running events. The ROCKSOLID RACE is one of the best going and was a big hit with our fundraisers when we introduced it in 2016. As with last year there are two locations to choose from, Exeter in March or Milton Keynes (Silverstone) in October. Both events have the further choice of 5km, 10km or 20km distances, with the 10km middle distance the most popular with fundraisers.
Over 100 supporters took part for Scotty’s last year raising more than £25,000 in the process. Many enjoyed it so much they have already signed up again for 2017.
“One of the things we love most about ROCKSOLID RACE is there’s something for everyone, whether this is your first obstacle race or your 101st!” said Scotty’s Chief Exec Stuart Robinson. He added “This is one of the friendliest and most professional events we have come across to date and all of our fundraisers came away with a massive sense of achievement.”
Scotty’s Founder Nikki Scott also took part in the Milton Keynes event and added “it was amazing seeing so many people wearing their Scotty’s running vests or t-shirts and all looking out for one another, it was a real team effort. I overcame some serious personal challenges along the way as did many others, but there was never a point where I felt on my own or in any danger. I can’t wait to see everyone supporting the charity again in 2017!”
There are plenty of photos of the 2016 events over on our Facebook page and the official ROCKSOLID RACE website has lots of additional information and videos.
For 2017 we have 2 different ways to sign up; FUNDED or FUNDRAISER places. FUNDED places are £60 and cover the full cost of your entry to the event. This way there is no minimum fundraising target, you just raise whatever you can. A FUNDRAISER place has a lower entry fee (£30) but you do have to reach a minimum fundraising amount of £100.
