Our Military Castle Challenge is aimed to be a fun morning for all the family.

Forces Fitness Ltd will ensure 20% of all profits from our race will be put back into our local community. This money will be used on projects that will improve the Health and Well- Being of our local Community and managed by a team of local Individuals / resident! Its simple. Come along and have some fun while raising money for a great cause.
We have the fantastic group Coity Festivals co-ordinating our activities inside the castle. We will have activities such as - Air Soft, Military Stand with weapons demonstrations, fun games for the kids, hot drinks food stands and Bar. Access to the castle will be a donation of your choice to our chosen charity that can be thrown in our donation bucket at the entrance.
