Baldock will welcome the One True Grit challenge to town for the first time.

Organised by Bassingbourn residents Paul Hildrow and Andy Levett, who have both served in the Army, the 10k obstacle mud run challenge is now open for entries.

The course will take competitors through a host of natural and man made obstacles at Kingswoodbury Farm, including the ice water dips, barbed wire mud crawls, fire runs, 8ft climbing walls, tunnels and a few surprises on the day.

It’s also for a good cause, with a percentage of registration fees going to Prostate Cancer UK.
