The annual KM Charity Challenge involved teams of six taking on more than 20 obstacles, many of them Army-style.

The gruelling event was used by teams to raise funds for the charity or good cause of their choice, with a slice supporting the children’s road safety work of the KM Charity Team, who organised the day in collaboration with MY/PT.

Every corner of the county was represented with Harmony Therapy Trust and Dover SmART Project from Dover, Kent MS Therapy Centre and Pilgrims Hospice from Canterbury, Heart of Kent Hospice, Golding Homes and air ambulance from Maidstone, Scout leaders from Gravesend, New Leaf support and DragonzLair Gym from Sittingbourne, MGD Dance Crew in Ashford, Saga from Folkestone and Dover, Porchlight in Thanet, Air Ambulance.

The event’s fastest time was recorded by a group of students from King’s School, Rochester calling their team Elite Squad, who conquered the course in 8min 32sec. The group were raising funds for the Kent MS Therapy Centre. Runners up New Leaf MudHatters from Swale completed the course in 10min 56sec.

The best fancy dress outfits were worn by the Scout leaders of Culverstone and Vigo who dressed as video games characters.

The event, staged at Betteshanger Park, Sandwich, raised more than £5,000 for good causes.
