Fire and Ice Challenge
Will you brave the elements for your local hospice? Take on two extremes… our coolest new challenge walking over razor sharp glass, also known as ice walking. Or our red hot Fire Walk!
Following the scorching success of our previous Fire Walks, we have turned up the heat by adding a cool twist to re-ignite this ultimate challenge. Alongside the iconic Fire Walk, we are excited to announce the brand new Ice Walk.
Picture yourself walking bravely over hundreds of pieces of sterilised broken bottles, navigating razor sharp shards at every step in the guidance and safety of professionals!
Our iconic Fire Walk really turns up the heat but fear not, training talks will be provided to ensure you can conquer the walks confidently in the safe hands of professionals!
Our goal is to raise £25,000 from this event. Sign up for one of the challenges for just £25 and raise a minimum of £100. Or take on both Fire and Ice for only £40, raising a minimum of £150.
To commemorate your bravery, each participant will receive a certificate, mug and t-shirt.
And in addition entry to the famous Rugby Fireworks Display is FREE for those taking part in one of our walks.
The challenges will take place at the spectacular Rugby Fireworks event on Saturday 4th November so you can celebrate bonfire night with a bang and join us for the ultimate mind over matter crusade!
You, your family and friends can soak up the electric atmosphere and enjoy the firework displays hosted by Rugby Round Table at their 70th bonfire celebrations whilst revelling in your glory, all for a worthy cause!
We can’t wait to see you there!

What should I wear?
There is no special clothing required. Casual comfortable clothes are best. Please remember fires can be quite dirty and clothes may become ash stained. Footwear needs to be easy to remove, and will need to be replaced before going back indoors so a hand towel might be a good idea. Flip flops are a good idea, especially if the ground is cold. Nail varnish and toe rings are fine.
Will it hurt?
The sensation is described by some as walking on eggshells, and others as walking on hot sand. Each walker has his or her own experience. We have not known walkers to experience pain and when the opportunity arises many will walk across the coals more than once.
