The event

The Iron Run combines mud, obstacles… and running!

“The wild 12k obstacle course is naturally carved out of 1000 acres of severe Northamptonshire woodland. You will run, crawl, jump, wade and swim through swamps, mud, hills, water and woods. It will test your physical and mental endurance skills to the max. This is adventure running at it’s purest.”

By taking part on behalf of Link Ethiopia, you will help us to continue our work in changing lives through education. With the money you raise you will help to empower teachers, improve schools and ensure that all children can get a good education.

We will also support you with any help or resources you might need, to get you on the right foot with fundraising. Please fill out the contact form on this page if you have any questions.
