Scarborough’s toughest competitors will make the journey to the Broughton Hall Estate on Saturday to tackle the infamous Tough Mudder challenge in aid of charity.

Teams from Baron’s Health & Fitness, Sniper Bootcamps and The Black Pigs will tackle the 12-mile assault course.

Participants will have to deal with mud, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity during their arduous treck, which only 78 per cent of entrants manage to conquer.

The Scarborough Pirates are tackling the course in aid of Ellie’s Fund.

You can donate to their team, named Ellie’s Emperors, by visiting www.justgiving.com/teams/ElliesEmperors.

Paul Marton and his Black Pigs are also running in aid of Ellie’s Fund, after his son Tom won his battle with a brain tumour.

Paul’s team can be supported by visiting their Just Giving page at www.justgiving.com/paulmarton.

You can also text your donation by sending MART49 plus the amount you would like to donate to 70070.

Also getting stuck in to the daunting assault course are the Sniper bootcamp team, led by Chris Stubbings.

They are running in aid of the local charity Sutton’s Trust Fund.

The Trust was set up in aid of Sutton Greening after the tragic death of his dad Joe three years ago.

Donate to Sniper by contacting Chris on 07837959393.

Dave Mort and his Muddy Barons team are running in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice.
