Breathtaking stunts in show

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

BURN­ING wa­ter, a barbed wire crawl and world first ‘Hell Fire’ fin­ish are just a few of the many ob­sta­cles to ex­pect when in­ter­na­tion­ally-renowned stunt per­form­ers, Gary Con­nery and Cur­tis Rivers, bring the ex­tra­or­di­nary world of Hol­ly­wood film and TV stunts to the English coun­try­side in March.

The in­au­gu­ral Stunt Chal­lenge, tak­ing place in Buck­ing­hamshire, will see par­tic­i­pants tackle out­ra­geous stunts and ex­pe­ri­ences – as seen in Bri­tish-made films – over ei­ther a tough half marathon route or a shorter 10km course.

Con­nery, bet­ter known for his role as HRH The Queen parachut­ing into the London 2012 Olympic open­ing cer­e­mony, and Rivers, who played HRH Prince Philip in the show The Royal Body­guard, will en­ter­tain spec­ta­tors and par­tic­i­pants at the two-day event by each at­tempt­ing an in­di­vid­ual stunt world record.

While the stunts are be­ing kept highly se­cret un­til the day, par­tic­i­pants and spec­ta­tors alike are bound to be amazed.

The event takes place on March 7 and 8 and there are only 3,000 tick­ets avail­able per day for ei­ther the half marathon or 10km op­tion. Tick­ets are be­ing sold at £99 each.

Spec­ta­tor tick­ets are be­ing sold at £5 each. To pur­chase tick­ets, visit www.stuntchal­
