Nine reminders of the times you took on a mega challenge in Sunderland and County Durham

Dare you share your memories of the amazing challenges you have done over the years?

We scoured the Sunderland Echo archives for a selection of images from people who took on top tasks – either for fun or for charity – in years gone by.

Here are nine of them, from a cycling challenge dressed as a banana to a ‘most pegs on the washing line’ task.

There’s the people pictured in a bid to play four golf courses in a day and an attempt to eat 6 hot dogs in their buns and a pound of chips in 20 minutes.

There’s plenty of television challenges at the moment to get your attention such as Celebrity SAS Who Dares Wins, Celebrity Masterchef, and Strictly Come Dancing is back soon too.

In the meantime, feast your eyes on these challenges closer to home.
