Active Warrior 5k 2019 – Southampton

19 October 19

Southampton Sports Centre, Thornhill Road, Bassett, Southampton, SO167AY


The Active Warrior 5k is the original event in the Active Warrior series. With its signature 100-meter water slide, over 40 manmade and naturally occurring obstacles, it takes in the best of the varied landscape the Southampton Outdoor Sports Centre has to offer to create the perfect obstacle based challenge.

As part of our 2019 improvements, which introduces new obstacles, a new medal, free adult participant t-shirts, we have redesigned the course to bring together the best of the adult course and the young recruit’s course to create one challenge fit for all.


Active Warrior is powered by Active Nation, a charity on a mission to persuade the Nation to be Active. Enjoyment is the single biggest factor in motivating children to be active, new analysis from Sport England Reveals.We know our course is enjoyable, so we’ve made a commitment to inspire a generation of children to be active. For every adult ticket purchased, we will award one free child place, either as part of a family ticket or, if it’s an adult only ticket, we will donate the free place to a local school.


Our event takes place in the Southampton Sports Centre, Thornhill Road, Bassett, Southampton, SO167AY. Limited parking is available at the centre and we respectfully request you don’t park over our neighbour’s driveways.

Race Categories

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

If you want to compete, to test yourself at pace, then enter the Forlorn hope (first 100) which takes place 09:30, is the wave for you.   If you’re looking for distance then this is also the ticket for you as the Forlorn hope is a limitless ticket allowing you to complete as many laps as you like.

If you are simply looking for a challenge, to test yourself against the obstacles then pick one of our adult only waves at 10:00 and 10:30 or our family waves at 11:00, 11:30 and 12:00.

You don’t have to be the fittest, you don’t have to be the quickest, you just need to have a can do attitude.
