COVID-19 INFORMATION

COVID SAFETY PLAN

The safety of our community is our priority and we are always working (and adapting) our plans to ensure safe racing.

All our 2022 events will be run in line with government guidelines and, if required, we have plans in place to run them as socially distanced events.

We ran a very successful socially distanced event at Hever Castle in September 2020. If required, we have safety plans in place so that all events and all venues can be run as socially distanced events. If this is necessary, we keep our community informed and will be in touch with relevant athletes with detailed information.

Our decision making will be informed by announcements from and conversations with the following groups:

  • Government
  • Sporting governing bodies
  • Venues
  • Suppliers
  • Athletes

To plan and run socially distanced events, we are guided by the following five principals:

  • Education Communication
  • Density Reduction
  • Touch Point Reduction
  • Athlete Self-Reliance
  • Hygiene Emphasis

It is vital that as a community, we all take responsibility to keep each other safe whilst preparing and taking part our event weekends. We are grateful for your continued support and understanding.

Organiser's Description

25% DISCOUNT ON ALL RACES IN 2023

Hever Castle, the 400 year old defensive structure, and a British icon, creates the perfect backdrop for The Commando.

This is the only event that can recreate the mud, sweat and pain of modern day Royal Marines Commando training. Have you got what it takes? Test yourself across a 6k or 12k course, taking on some of the toughest obstacles straight out of the Commando test book.

Be transported into the military world from the moment you step into our Commando base camp complete with Field Kitchen.

Fortified with crenellations, a moat, portcullis, this 400 year old defensive structure and British icon, creates the perfect backdrop for Commando. Hever Castle represents challenge, heritage, success, and military excellence.

Photographers will be positioned around the course, at the finish line and in the event village to capture you in action.

OMG was that a hard OCR!!!! I had sort of an idea what to expect, and then really I had not idea what awaited me at all. No spoilers for anyone considering this OCR - just do it. I ran on my own and the levels of collaboration between total strangers was unbelievable. I can honestly say having taken part in numerous other well known OCR's this ones the hardest - this was not made any easier with the webbing I chose to wear on the day - just a fantastic experience.
