This coming weekend, Channel 4 will be showing the inaugural running of what is set to become a legendary challenge – Xtreme Storm (which took place on 20 April).
The 30-minute programme will air at 7am on Sunday 26 May, and will showcase the event that includes 32 man-made obstacles over a 14-mile course, set in the Victorian seaside resort of Southport. Competitors must take on freezing waters, the sands and mudflats that line the edge of the Irish Sea, climb the mile-long Victorian pier and take on the unusual challenges of the Pleasureland Theme Park, including the Hall of Mirrors. At last they will come to the Xtreme Storm’s final obstacle: Apocalypse!
