Mud Runs and Obstacle Racing

Participants climb from water onto an iron girder bridge in the obstacle raceObstacle racing combines running, obstacles and a lot of mud to create the ultimate challenge of strength, stamina and mental grit.

You can compete as an individual or as a team and the length and difficulty of races vary.

The majority of events are set over 5km to 20km and will normally include over 10 obstacles, (but often a lot more!) There's something for everyone, from hardened elite racers, to novices and newbies.
