Samson challenge seeks entrants

PREPARATIONS are up and running for the 3rd annual Lismore Samson Fitness Challenge, to be held on Sunday March 3 this year.

The Challenge, a team event, involves four people in each team completing eight gruelling challenges that include strength activities, running, swimming and an outdoor obstacle course.

The fittest team will take home the Samson Title.

The Challenge this year is raising funds for Our Kids to purchase a Humidicrib for the Lismore Base Hospital Special Care Nursery, which cares for one third of the babies born in the Northern Rivers.

Major sponsors along with long-time major sponsors Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre, Southern Cross University and Telstra, this year Woollam Constructions have jumped on board, and are helping to create some 'top secret' obstacles and equipment for the Challenge.

The registration fee is $320 per team and registration closes on 24th February.

For more details on the course and to register phone Our Kids on 6620 2705 or go to the website.
