FAQs

  • Do I need to be really fit to take part?

    Not at all. Our events are designed to be for everyone. Yes, they are challenging in areas but they have also been designed to not be super-technical (whether that's the trails, the obstacles or the primal fitness exercises) and therefore are accessible to everyone! You can also decide how to tackle the course, whether that is in our competitive heats, our just for fun heats and by yourself or with friends!

  • What other amenities will there be on the day?

    A bag drop area, toilets, food and drink vendors and also some extra special fitness apparel & merch!

  • Will there be a photographer on the day?

    Of course - we'll have several throughout the route!

  • Will there be water stations on the course?

    Of course, there will be several along the route!

  • What if I fail an obstacle on the Assault Course?

    Burpees! Each obstacle will have a burpee penalty if you are unable to complete it.

  • When will we find out our heat times?

    We will send out an athlete pack which will include exact heat times on the week of the event. This pack will also include important information including parking etc

Great Event,well organised,9 th overall, in the 16k,2nd in vets,apparently guy who won vets,beat me by an hour👀🙈,not possible in such a short race,didn't fail anything, definitely cheating going on there
Hi Mark, Thanks for your review and your kind words about the event. In terms of your query about the results, we do take issues such as these very seriously. Upon investigation into this finishing time, it was found that this person had not completed the course correctly and was therefore removed from the leaderboard. Which means you actually came first in the 16k vets category. Congratulations!! You can check out the updated leaderboard on our website :)

I had such a great time doing the Battle at Blaise 6k. It was my first ever trail run and it took a lot of courage to take part. I was worried about being too slow but the marshalls and photographers were super supportive and really pushed myself and my friend to keep going. Unfortunately though, just before the end of the race there were 4 young marines that made me want to give up. They were demoralising, laughing at myself and my friend, and caused all of my insecurities to come flooding back and I really struggled to finish the race. It took a lot of encouraging words from my friend to get me over that finish line. However, everything else was brilliant!
Hi Holly, Congratulations on completing the 6k Trail Run and having the courage to sign up. As event organisers, hearing that we had a small role in helping people to accomplish something that they initially had doubts about being able to do, makes all the hard work that goes into putting on events completely worth it, so a massive thank you for your kind words! Equally, I'm really sorry to hear about the behaviour of the Marines on the course, this is not something that we condone, nor is in line with the positive & supportive atmosphere that we wish to create at our events. Following Kate's review last week, I have escalated the matter, speaking to our point of contact at the Royal Marines and explaining that this behaviour is totally unacceptable. I do hope that despite this unfortunate happening, you still feel proud of your efforts on the trail run (as you should) and are willing to give another one of our events a go in the future! Well done again, Luca :)

First trail run and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. A well organised event with extremely friendly marshalls, even the photographers were supportive. The only negative and criticism I have is of the four young Royal Marines stationed at around the 5.7 km. These men were openly laughing at myself and my friend, they were condescending and rude. This dented my friends confidence so much, so close to the finish line. This is not the support you need or expect, and is unwelcome to those who are working on their running ability and confidence.
Hi Kate, Thank you for your kind words about the trail run and it's great to hear that the marshalls and stewards were so supportive!  With regards to the Marines, I'd like to be the first to apologise for their behaviour on the course, it is totally unacceptable and not in keeping with the positive atmosphere and supportive nature of our events at all. I am in the process of emailing our point of contact at the Marines to make them aware that this behaviour has no place at our events.  Our aim has always been to put on events that lift people up and build confidence rather than the opposite and so it's really disappointing to hear about this. I've emailed you directly to discuss this further. Apologies again and congratulations on smashing the trail run, we hope to see you at one of our events soon! Luca :)

The race was good and hard, but it didn't seem particularly well organised. I spent too long searching for information that should have been obvious. Big panic about parking that wasn't really an issue. But I parked off site and there was no signage to the event. Sorry to say - but the music (percussion) wasn't really motivating. In spite of all we had a great day. Great helpers on the course. Plenty of toilets. Food options OK. Just a medal and a drink for finishers - No shirt though.
Hi Robert, Thank you for your review - great to hear that you found the race challenging and had a great day! I'm sorry that you feel that we didn't quite hit the mark in certain areas such as the parking. Luckily, next year, we plan to hold the event slightly earlier in the year so as to make use of all of the onsite parking. We really appreciate all of your feedback and look forward to putting on an even better experience for everyone next year :) Thanks, Luca
