- 4-11 years: 1k Kids' course
- 12-15 years: 5k Adult course, but without one of the obstacles. There will be a specific ‘teen wave’ so this age group will only run with people in that age bracket
- 16+ years: Adult course, 5km or 10km option (they choose which option they want to complete on the day)
We want everyone to enjoy the day, so if you really can’t complete one of the obstacles then you can bypass it and move onto the next. There will be water obstacles, so anyone who is unable to swim can simply skip these.
It’s always useful to have a checklist to ensure you’ve packed everything. Here’s our list of essentials, but be sure to add your own!
• Your race clothes: leggings/shorts (joggers will be too heavy when wet), tshirt/technical running tee (if you have one), socks, old trainers
• Safety pins: for your race number
• Bin bags: for standing/sitting on, plus it’s easier to throw your wet, muddy gear into them to take home!
• Change of clothes: you will get wet and muddy
• Change of trainers: there’s nothing worse than wet feet!
• Towel: just make sure it’s not your mama’s best white, fluffy towels!
• Spare socks and undies
• Wet wipes
• Jumper: don’t get cold when the adrenaline wears off
• Water: stay hydrated, although there are refreshments available in our event village
• Carrier bag: again useful for wet clothes, but also to take away your rubbish and keep our parks clean
• Blanket: for sitting on/keeping warm
• Cash: for spending at the event village
• Deodorant: it will be a long drive home if not!
• Medication (if required): don’t forget your inhaler if you need one!
• Your sense of adventure: fun guaranteed
• Remember: lockers are available but please avoid taking valuables with you
