Over 200 people are expected to take part, raising money for Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity.

Teams can be between 6 and 10 people and the challenge is for adults and young people aged 14 and over. There is small registration fee and a request for teams to raise additional sponsorship to take part. It’s an excellent corporate team building opportunity, but equally the event lends itself to the wider community. Participating teams may be a school sixth form, social club, hotel, pub or restaurant, or even a street.

Individuals don’t need to be at the top of their game physically as the games are designed to encourage team working and lots of fun along the way.

David Fisher, Community and Events Fundraiser with Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity, said: “We are really looking forward to bringing this classic TV game show to North Yorkshire, and can’t wait to welcome the teams to the event field in Ripley and find out who will be our 2018 ‘It’s a Knockout’ Champions!

“There is still time to get involved, so if you want to enter a team, please get in touch by Friday 21 September.”
