This summer’s Inverclyde Warrior 5K assault course event has attracted sponsorship from local businesses.
Inverclyde Warrior 5K is a five-kilometre obstacle course featuring flying monkey bars, ninja walls, balance boards, walking beams, crawl and cargo nets, climbing frames and the iconic Travelator seen in Gladiators.
It is being organised by Inverclyde Leisure and takes place at Battery Park, Greenock in June.
The event charity is fellow ICC Members Inverclyde Community Fund, which distributes funding through a number of different grant programmes, on behalf of public and private sector partners.
Joe Boyd, operations manager at Blair Windows, said: “Blairs Windows and Doors are pleased to be supporting the first Inverclyde Warrior event.
“It is also great to see the chosen charity for this event is Inverclyde Community fund, further supporting our ethos of giving back to the local community and helping Inverclyde to become an even better place.”
Puneet Gupta, chief executive at PG Paper, said: “After the difficult times over the past two years when events like this have been unable to take place, we are delighted to be supporting Inverclyde Warrior.
“Our involvement has reminded us just how important both our physical and mental wellbeing is, and I’m looking forward to taking part with my team.”
Paul McCafferty, general manager of Arnold Clark Greenock, said: “At Arnold Clark, we’re passionate about giving back to our local communities. That’s why we’re delighted to support the Inverclyde Warrior Event.
“It’s a truly fantastic opportunity for participants to meet people from the local community and challenge themselves while trying something new. Good luck to everyone taking part!”
The sponsors will have teams taking part. Holly Stinson, marketing manager at PG Paper said: “The whole PG Paper team is looking forward to the event. Many of us live locally and are excited to get involved with the community.
“It will be a brilliant opportunity for team building, and what I hope will be a lot of laughs together.”
The event course and obstacles have been entirely funded by Inverclyde Council as part of the Meliora Festival 2022.
Local secondary school students will take part on Friday 10 June, with the main event, open to everyone, on Saturday 11 June.
