When was the last time you hunted for Easter eggs?
Rabble Easter Egg Hunt
Of course, we had to put in a little Easter race. Chase chocolate this Easter. You will need to hunt eggs as you’d hunt deer, requiring strategy, stealth and speed. Bring them all in and they’ll reward you with chocolate. The event starts at 11:00 and you have to be 18 and over to take part. Head to Clapham Common Bandstand, Clapham Common, SW4. Call 07719 688203 for further information.
Entry: Free (first rabble game); £7.50 for returning players; £10 without booking
WAR Warrior Adrenaline Race, Hertford
Said to have exploded onto the fitness event market in April 2012, the Warrior Adrenaline 10km Race has seen a soar in popularity. The team behind the race gains its experience from Regiment Fitness, which claims to provide challenging obstacles for participants, seeking to encourage as many new racers as possible to join the event. Leading from the front, MD Steven Nodwell has competed in a handful of Ironman challenges and is determined to push participants to their absolute limit.
Entry: £40 adults; £20 juniors

The hub of activity will be centred on the live demo stage. Last year’s festival saw Ruby Wax present her workshop A Sane New World – Taming the Mind.

Further afield: Madagascar Trek
Envisage a route that takes you through sandstone gorges and canyons in Isalo National Park, before capturing the lush valleys of Andringitra National Park, where the challenge team aims to trek to the summit of Pic Boby, the second highest peak in Madagascar. This is an open challenge, which means you can take part and raise funds for any of the charities listed. The journey is long, as you navigate your soles across uneven roads and set up camp at the foot of Pic Boby under the sinking evening light.
Entry: £299 (plus minimum sponsorship)
