The inaugural challenge, run in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice, took place at Ipswich Rugby Club on Saturday.

Inspired by the TV programme Ninja Warrior UK, the event saw participants face 10 giant obstacles including a travelator similar to the one used in the Gladiators TV show.

Two different courses were on offer at the event, allowing guests of all ages to take on the challenge.

Joanne Rodger, events and challenges manager at St Elizabeth Hospice said that reaction to the new event had been hugely positive.
