waterwipeout 2020 preview

Water Wipeout is the WETTEST fun run in the world of obstacle racing - so if you are remotely aqua phobic then this will really challenge you to the core!

Hosted at the world class venue National Water Sports Centre conveniently based in Nottinghamshire. We selected this venue specifically based on it's amazing attributes, such as the ideal location in the centre of England makes it accessible from most areas. Capacity - this venue can cope really well with literally thousands on site at any one time as it plays host to some of the UK's most notable sporting events. There are plenty of areas to change, shower and get refreshments too. But we mostly selected this particular venue for it's plentiful supply of the wet stuff. Last year we introduced the white water course as an obstacle where you have to jump into the fast flowing water and boy did everyone enjoy that experience!

Safety – None of the obstacles are compulsory,  if there is something that you feel unable to do, then you can simply walk around, the choice is yours, stay safely!

Water Quality – Water facilities are supplied from a variety of sources including surface streams and the River Trent. The waters have fluctuating levels of bacteria and are similar to those found in UK coastal sea bathing waters. The water is tested regularly and prior to the event to ensure they are within parameters. If you fall ill with symptoms after the event, particularly from 3-19 days following, then see your doctor immediately.

Reduce the risk, avoid swallowing and/or splashing water or mud into your mouth, keep your head above the water, lower your self into the water where possible. If you are unsure or don’t want to take the risk there is always an alternative route to avoid the water completely. Wash your hands and face immediately after the event  read more
