What is it?
London’s water obstacle course, the Rat Race, will take place on Saturday 12th August. The race will provide an incredible challenge for crazy competitors, as well as raise vital funds for the charity Children with Cancer UK.
The 10km water course will see participants run, jump, swim, crawl and slide their way around Docklands in East London.
This year’s course will feature more than 35 obstacles, including a 50ft water slide, giant inflatables, and the biggest water jump in any UK race.
Participants should expect to get wet, and have a sense of adventure. The Rat Race will begin and end at the ExCel centre, and all entrants will receive a wristband, t-shirt, headband, and timing chip.
Participants who manage to raise at least £250 for charity will receive a free Rat Race robe for their efforts.
Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer.
