Get ready to feel 'The Burn'

The RAF Benevolent Fund has been chosen as the nominated charity for a superb new company called Revolution Runs who on 18 May will be hosting a new challenge event called 'The Burn'. Welsh International rugby player Adam Jones is one of the organisers of The Burn and in a guest blog he tells us more about it.

My company Revolution Runs was created to provide demanding physical and mental challenges whilst maximising the Revolution Runs experience. Each of our events will consist of some of the toughest terrains Mother Nature has to offer for all levels of ability.

The BurnThe Burn isn't just for the hardcore trail runners; we've designed the course so that all fitness abilities can take part. Compete as an individual or as part of a team, your objective is not only to finish the course but to beat it! 

The Burn takes place in Buzzards Valley, Tamworth, Staffordshire on 18 May 2014 and entry is £35 for seniors and £15 for juniors. Let the flames be your guide as you're led through 10k of punishing terrain until you reach your final destination and the ultimate 'burn'.

Our junior course is a mini version of the event and is perfect for all budding obstacle course runners aged 14-17. The event will also be a great day out for spectators and we'll have a DJ there, refreshments and bar on site. 

We're excited to support the RAF Benevolent Fund who are our official charity for The Burn. As the public profile of the Afghanistan campaign reduces and our forces end their combat role, it is essential that we continue to support service charities. We are therefore proud to be associated with an organisation that helps past, present and future RAF personnel and their families, whenever they need it.
