HUNDREDS of people from across East Lancashire and the North West are preparing to take part in this weekend’s high adrenaline No Ego Challenge at Preston.

The No Ego ‘Mud’ Challenge is a 10k assault course which promised to put people through their paces in a battle of physical endurance, agility and mental willpower.

On Saturday competitors will set off in seven waves, starting at 10.20am at the site in Leisure Lakes, Mere Brow, Tarleton.

Among them will be Lancashire Telegraph’s assistant picture editor, Lisa Woodhouse.

For this event, organisers have teamed up with Go Commando Fitness and will include around 30 obstacles including lake, mud, drainage ditches. The gruelling military-style obstacles will test more than your stamina and strength – and the event is certainly not one for the faint hearted!

Entry for this weekend’s event is now closed, but the next No Ego Mud Challenge event will take place in September in Preston.
