In less than two months teams will be undertaking the military style obstacle course at Lowther Castle on April 4.

Fitness Formation has arranged Sunday sessions at the University of Cumbria to help tackle the course which is designed to test strength, vigour and teamwork.

The sessions are free of charge and open to all.

A collection bucket for the hospice will be on site at each session.
