Organiser's Description

Take on a brand-new fitness challenge this November!

Hosted at the stunning Blaise Castle Estate, Battle at Blaise will be a unique, memorable, and totally epic fitness experience for sure!

Our 7k obstacle course race combines an awesome trio of tasty trails, fun and challenging obstacles, and an array of mini primal fitness challenges along the way! You can find out more about the exact course route on our website!

…And just in case an epic obstacle course race wasn’t enough for you, we’ve also designed a super-sexy 6k & 10k trail around the amazing Blaise Castle Estate, all taking place on the same day! – so you can now choose to tackle the OCR, the trail run or even go that extra mile (excuse the pun) and take on both challenges!

Battle at Blaise has been specifically designed to be accessible to all abilities! So you can run it just for fun and giggles, or you can join our competitive heats and test yourself against hundreds of other runners (Categories include individuals, pairs or in mixed teams)!

So, get ready to conquer the castle this November! Book your spot today before prices rise!

The route

1 JUST GETTING STARTED
When you hit the first challenge zone you’ll dive straight into tackling a series of jumping obstacles before having your balance and co-ordination immediately tested on the balance beams and extended tyre run track!

A plethora of obstacles to waken up the senses ready for the long road (well, trails) ahead! 🤩

JustGetting Started

2 ONTO THE TRAIL
Next up, the first of our 4 epic trails! (follow the blue line)

Time to navigate nature at its finest ….

Bring on the trees 🌲

Bring on the mud 🐾

Bring on the lung buster 🥵

HERE WE GO!!!

3 CLIMB & CARRY
First trail done, now time for our first Obstacle / Functional Fitness Combo Zone – you’ll need to conquer a series of climbing obstacles coupled with unconventional carries!

Carries could include sandbags, tyres, logs, kegs or even a couple of your fellow competitors...

...only joking about that last one…that might get a bit weird! 🤨

Climb & Carry

4 BASE CAMP
Now that you’ve bested the old climb and carry, it’s time to start your second trail (follow the yellow line)...and the grind begins with a looonnnng sharp incline! 🏃‍♀️

OOOOH YEHHHH BABY!
(We won’t tell them about the backpacks, that’ll be a lovely little surprise for them … shhhhh) 😈

Base Camp

5 EVEREST
A challenge at the summit and one that's guaranteed to get those legs feeling like you're climbing Everest! (Again) 🏔

Because friends don’t let friends skip leg day…and we’re definitely your FRIENDS…right? 👀

Everest

6 CAN YOU HOLD ON?
GET TO GRIPS (see what we did there? 😏) with our rowing machines and scaffold-based obstacles!

Yep, rowers AND scaffolding obstacles...where else would you get to do that?! 🤷

Can you hold on?

7 IN THE BAG
Our shortest, flattest but spiciest little trail run!

Why spiciest we hear you ask quizzingly 🧐?

Well, because we always like to add a little bit of sandy spice to our hikes! 🏝

(follow the orange line on the map)

In the bag

8 PUSH
Our second Obstacle / Functional Fitness Combo Zone!

Consider it the bigger brother of old Climb & Carry!

Be ready to test your odd-object lifting strength but also your ability to move your own bodyweight! 🤔

Push

9 PULL
The perfect way to balance out all of the pushing that you’ve just done!

Same structure, different focus! Same good time! 😎

Pull

10 THE FINAL CLIMB
Our FINAL but most challenging trail that takes you all the way up to Blaise Castle! 🏰

(follow the red arrow on the map)

11 BODYWEIGHT BLAISE
At the base of Blaise Castle, you'll have to conquer our very own outdoor Room of Doom, a room filled with all of the FUN!

Expect bodyweight exercises like Bear Crawls, Broad Jumps and of course…Burp (don’t worry, we can pretend that they aren’t included for a bit longer!) 🤫

Bodyweight Blaise

12 FLIP & FLY
Our final test which combines some Superhuman classics with some brand-new obstacles! 😍

OOOO we can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store for the finale!! 🏆 🎉 🎊
