Instead of swimming those taking part in the Greene King Big Bro Race will have to complete a course of 25 obstacles.

All the money raised on the day will be going to local charity GeeWizz.

Laura Hudson, the organiser of the race said: “The event is completely unique, no other triathlon combines the disciplines of cycling and running with obstacle course racing.

“We are very excited this year to be supporting GeeWizz.

“It is fantastic as a Suffolk event to be fundraising for a Suffolk charity, and for everyone involved to be able to see where their entry fee has gone.”

The event will be taking place at The Playground in Barrow on Sunday September 23.

Entry is £45 per person and can be completed online.
