W.A.R GAMES - WEEKEND ASSAULT RACE
Sniper W.A.R GAMES (Weekend Assault Race) Charity Event in aid of Ellie's Fund - Brain Tumour Trust
A 5k obstacle course open for all civilians (everyone)... Snipers and non Snipers alike... to go and do battle against! The course is designed to test all-around strength, stamina, determination, mental grit... and most importantly with the goal to raise £21,000 on the day towards Ellie's Fund - Brain Tumour Trust (BTT). In memory of Ellie in the year she should be celebrating her 21st birthday
In support of Ellie's Fund BTT we have changed our tagline from, "If it doesn't CHALLENGE you... it doesn't CHANGE you!" To...
"...NO ONE BATTLES ALONE"
Set in the grounds of Stepney Hill Farm through mud, water, and over the valleys, this obstacle course will challenge your physical and mental limits and prepare you for all forms of future OCR events!
Think of Sniper W.A.R GAMES as a your own personal obstacle course "battle field" as you are faced with a uncompromising 5K trail run paired with 20 energy sapping, adrenalin pumping, obstacles including:1. GET WET OR GO HOME2. HAY UP3. OVER THE TOP5. HIT THE DECK6. ROLL CALL7. HELL SLIDE8. IN THE TRENCHES
9. THIS IS NUTS10. PREDATOR RUN... AND MORE!!!
Sniper W.A.R GAMES requires strength, stamina, mental focus and determination in order to complete the 5K course in an average time of 1.5 hours.
Each W.A.R GAMES event is given its own unique name as the course route and its obstacles will be changed over time! This allows recruits to not only challenge for the fastest times on each event day, but it also provides repetition of previous courses in the future to allow all recruits to better their own personal bests for that event! In honour of Ellie, the WAR Games course for 2016 is course "Ellie!"
SNIPER WAR GAMES CHARITY EVENT: We have been approached by Ellie's Fund - BTT charity to run this WAR Games event as a charity fund raiser in order to provide assistance to families who live in Yorkshire and across the Humber who have a child going through treatment for a brain tumour and to raise awareness about brain tumours and support established research projects.
Our goal on the day is for the WAR Game recruits to help raise £21,000 to help aid the charity - "No one battles alone!"
HOW WILL YOU RECRUITS RAISE FUNDS ON THE DAY? Firstly, enrollment is ONLY £25.00 of which a minimum of £5.00 from every ticket sold will go direct to the charity. On the day car parking will be made available with a suggested donation of £2 per car as the whole event will be marshaled by volunteers from Ellie's Fund - BTT. They will be walking around with charity donation buckets, so if you need to get rid of those spare coins in your pocket come race time... the volunteers will gladly help you out!
The day is not just about the race... spectators can get a great view of all the action from a viewing platform at Stepney Tea rooms and the whole family can enjoy a fun day as well... not only can they watch and take part in 'some of the race action' (more about this at a later date) but on the day there will be a DJ, face painting, bouncy castle, raffle, hog roast and more. All of which will help raise funds towards the charity.
Finally with regards to the fundraising, be it if that you are taking on Sniper WAR Games on your OWN or as a TEAM... get sponsored to take part! If everyone on the day was sponsored just £100 to do battle in Sniper WAR Games we would easily raise the goal of £21,000 towards Ellie's Fund - BTT. No one should battle alone... and with your goodwill and determination we will help all those affected by such conditions to win their own personal battle!

THE SNIPER PLEDGE:
“Today I start my journey with #teamWAR and I pledge that…
Come rain or shine I will always stand in line
