Teams of six took on more than 20 army-style obstacles at Betteshanger Park.

The Co-op team Scrambled Legs completed the course in the fastest time of 19 minutes and 13 seconds, raising money for Oasis women’s refuge in Margate in the process.

There were three teams raising money for the PTA of St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School in Ramsgate; another three for the Thanet Extra’s charity of the year, Westgate-based Changing Minds; one for Age UK Thanet; and one for Yalding-based rehab charity the Kenward Trust.

Event coordinator Dominic Comins said: “Many congratulations to everybody who went above and beyond during the assault course challenge on Sunday.

“Everybody did absolutely brilliantly, putting in some seriously impressive times over what is a challenging course, and raising valuable funds for some fantastic charities.”

The event was supported by Betteshanger Park, Specsavers, personal fitness specialists MY/PT, White’s Transport and Eurostar.

And the money raised was split 70/30 between the participants’ good causes and the KM Charity Team’s literacy and road safety services for children.
