Promising to be one of the most memorable journeys you will ever undertake, the St Clare Firewalk on Saturday, November 14 is a barefoot walk over red-hot wood embers smoldering at about 800 degrees Fahrenheit.
St Clare challenge events fundraiser Jade Clarke said: “Man’s fascination with fire goes back thousands of years, and while it is tempting to look at fire walking and explain it with physics, that is not enough to dispel the primal fear caused by the feeling of intense heat on your face as you stand at the edge of the fire pit.
“Participants will need to get fired up to fight all their survival instincts to take the first step on this thrilling challenge, but what a fantastic sense of achievement once you’ve crossed the embers and conquered the coals.”
Registration for the St Clare Firewalk is £25 per person, and participants are asked to pledge to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship.
The event is open to all ages, but under 18-s must have signed parental permission to walk.
