Our main course is an obstacle dense 5km race, with a 10km option, offering a range of man made and naturally occurring obstacles divided into timed and competitive waves. Suitable for ages 16 upwards. We also have a young recruits mini course for 4-15 years of age. The last wave of the day is a family wave for children 8 upwards and their parents to run together.


Our course has been designed to test your determination and uses the beautiful landscape around the Outdoor Sports Centre. The course will contain around 40 obstacles varying in size, difficulty and terrain. There will be at least 2 water stops. If you want to carry your own water bottle that is fine but Camelbaks or similar are not recommended.

Limited parking is available at the centre and we respectfully request you don’t park over our neighbour’s driveways. Racers can pre-booked parking to secure there place.

Race Categories

Whatever your motivation is, Active Warrior is the perfect way to challenge yourself.

If you want to complete, to test yourself at pace, then enter one of our competitive waves which take place between 09:00 – 10:45. These waves are timed and racers will be in with a chance of winning a prize for the quickest age category as well as the quickest overall male and female racers. Prizes will be awarded on the podium at midday.

If you are simply looking for a challenge, to test yourself against the obstacles then pick one of our timed only waves which take place between 11:00 – 12:40. You don’t have to be the fittest, you don’t have to be the quickest, you just have to have a can do attitude. These waves are timed so you can set a time to beat next year.

    10 km

    When once isn’t enough Active Warrior gives you the 10km option!

    We know some Warriors like distance, some love the mud and some feel once down the ski slide simply wont cut it. Well this year we have introduced two 10km waves. The first at 09:30 is a competitive option, prizes are available for the quickest around, and the second wave at 11:00 is timed only.

    The 10km waves will lap the main course twice but in the transition between lap one and two we are creating something special including an obstacle unique to racers at this distance.

    And of course 10km Warriors will get there own medal! So for only £10 more, are you ready for twice the fun?
