Only the Brave is Back!

The East Anglian Air Ambulance Only the Brave is back for the second year running at the Elveden Estate near Thetford. Only the Brave – an obstacle course challenge event — will take place on the 1st and 2nd April 2017. And this year, it’s bigger, better, and muddier than ever before!

Participants can choose between a 5 or 10 mile mud run with over 40 obstacles; running, crawling, climbing, and scrambling to the finish line.

Last year over 1300 people from across the region took part and raised over £100, 000 for the life-saving charity.

There will be six races in total over the weekend; three per day beginning at 9.30 am. People can enter individually or as part of a team.

EAAA’s Dr Neil Berry entered Only the Brave last year as part of a crew team. He said: ‘Only the Brave is a fantastic event and we can’t do what we do – which is life-saving treatment for patients at the scene of trauma or medical emergency across East Anglia – without the money to do that, and it comes from events like this. All the runners who take part keep us going – which is absolutely fantastic!’
