The Lismore Samson Fitness Challenge is on this Saturday.
Over 140 Teams from across the region will have a staggered start from 6.45am, with teams coming from as far as Melbourne and Brisbane to compete.
This event is to raise funds for local charity, Our Kids.
Our Kids charity raises money for Lismore Base Hospital’s Children’s Ward as well as for kids from the broader Richmond Valley and further afield, so they can receive specialist medical care locally.
The Lismore Samson Fitness Challenge is a team event, where four people in each team will complete 10 gruelling challenges including: strength activities, running, swimming and an outdoor obstacle course. The fittest team will take home the Samson Title.
This year, like all years, the competition is hot with teams competing to win the converted Samson title.
The Presentation of the winners will be held at the Results Party at the Richmond Hotel from 4.30pm on Saturday.
New to Samson and Samson Kids this year are two extra events: Samson Solo and Samson Sprint.
Samson solo is an individual event that will be run on the night of Friday, 2nd March starting at 6pm.
Individual competitors will pit themselves against each other. The Samson Solo will consist of five heats with the winners going through to the evening’s main event, the Grand Final to decide the ultimate winner.
Samson Sprint is a great way to get teenagers involved on Saturday 3rd March. It is a 3km dash starting and finishing at Hepburn Park for kids aged 11-15. Registration is on the day.
On the day, Samson Kids will also be running to help get children interested in fitness and have a great time while the adults are doing the main Event.
Held at Hepburn Park, Samson Kids will have their own separate course, run by Brad at Fitt Kidz.
Entry is by gold coin donation
This year the Samson is looking at raising over $25,000 to help purchase an Ultrasound machine to monitor the health of babies in utero and during labour.
