what is obstacle course racing?
An obstacle course race is an off-road run with obstacles such as cargo net crawls, walls, monkey bars, balance beams and muddy ditches. Think of it as a cross between a massive adult adventure playground and a military assault course. Our events are hosted in the great British countryside, in stunning locations, so you can enjoy being outdoors with beautiful scenery and fresh air in abundance.
X-Runner adult events (15yrs+) are all 5k or 10k obstacle races and mud runs, each race is made up of five kilometre laps containing around seventy obstacles in the full race distance. More obstacles, less running!
Obstacle Course Racing is one of the fastest growing sports, there are more obstacle course races & mud runs taking place than half and full marathons combined.trainingtips
