Rocket Race Apollo

Henstridge, Somerset

Organiser's Description

Rocket Race kicks off its 5th season with Apollo - in a brand new format for another epic obstacle run experience.

With the course distance increasing to 10k, Rocketeers now tackle one obstacle packed lap with regular entry.

Those looking to test themselves can enter the early waves in a bid to complete a Rocket Marathon (4 laps) or Half Marathon (2 laps) before the Marathon Sweeper heads out on course at 4pm (that's your cut off time!).

With the undulating course jammed packed with a huge variety of challenging and innovative obstacles to run, jump, crawl, climb, wade and swing across, Rocketeers have the perfect chance to have fun whilst testing themselves and achieving new goals. Keen to encourage families to get fit and have fun together whilst achieving something unforgettable, Rocket Race offers a special family wave for children aged 7+ to run with parents/guardians.

Rocket Race Apollo is also a qualifying event for the UK OCR Championships. Those wishing to qualify should enter the first wave only. The top 50% of male and female age category finishers with 100% obstacle completion will qualify. Please see the UK OCR Championships Facebook Page for further information about age categories etc.

Our obstacle heavy course provides the perfect challenge for newbies, teams, families and elites, so sign up today and join the ranks of our Rocketeers!

Fun OCR for all abilities

Don’t think you can’t do it because you can. Just give it a go, so much support and encouragement from the marshals. Climbing, mud, water and so much fun. Family wave too. Hope to see you there.
