The Biggest Obstacle Course On Earth Adventure!

The latest episode of our children’s podcast, Armchair Adventures, is out now. Make sure you’ve got your P.E kit at the ready for The Biggest Obstacle Course On Earth Adventure!

At Armchair Adventures Travel Agency, customer Steve has come to Connie for a journey of the imagination with all of the gang. Connie has fallen out with her cousin Sura because she’s pulled out of sports day, so it’s the perfect time for a getaway. However, Steve has an active adventure in mind – he and the rest of the gang love to get moving! That means it’s time for something seriously sporty…

Connie:                I’m rubbish at that physical stuff! I’ve never won anything either, so that proves it’s not for me!

John OG:             It’s not just about winning Connie

Carla:                   Absolutely!

Linda:                   Well, why don’t we see if we can help change your mind?

Lynda:                  Grab your exercise gear…

Pauline:               Because we are about to take you on an adventure!

Steve:                   An adventure to compete in…

Pat:                       The toughest…

Lily:                      The muddiest…

Carla:                   The scariest…


Connie isn’t convinced – the obstacles are enormous and everyone else looks so athletic! However, with Steve as her coach and her customers standing at the side-lines to cheer her on, she’s willing to give it a try. She struggles over the giant pyramid net, meets her match in the railway bridge hurdles and then she needs to battle her way through the muddy tunnel – yuck!

Can she do it, or will she get stuck in the mud? Listen to Part One of The Biggest Obstacle Course On Earth Adventure now, and make sure you join us for Part Two, launching on Thursday 20th April!
