Motiv8 Exercise and Fitness is planning a sponsored run in aid of Lynn-based charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers. Fifteen members of the group that operates out of The Walks in Lynn, will take part in the Spartan Race in Cambridge on September 1. Competitors must climb walls, crawl through barbed wire and brave fire in the toughest of obstacle races. Mark Flowers, Motiv8 proprietor and ex-Royal Marine, aims to raise £5,000 for the charity, which helps the children of fallen servicemen. He said “Most people never believed they could train for a race like this, but it’s for a great cause.” To support Mark and his comrades, visit bmycharity.com/motiv8andscottygoesspartan.
