Beach ballistic is an OCR event set in the vast grounds of Balmedie Country Park in Aberdeenshire and is Scotlands only beach based OCR course.

The stunning beach, and unique dune system, is the location for the gruelling 16K and 6K OCR courses and the extreme 32k monster that is the ULTRA BEACH.

Beach Ballistic event is a great day out for the family, with Balmedie Country Park offering an excellent park for kids along with ample parking and toilets next to the beach pavilion.

Beach Ballistic is one of only two World and European Championship qualification OCR courses in Scotland!
Competitors from both the 32K+ and 16K+ races will have the opportunity to qualify for the OCR World and European Championships.

Obstacles are set in the unique and challenging coastal landscape, including a dip in the North Sea - this will be a true test of strength, stamina and mental toughness.

    • Did the 16K Beach Ballistic in 2019

      Enjoyed the experience
      There was a long stretch of running on sand that could have been broken up with obstacles.
      Some queuing at the start (first few obstacles) but no queuing at the rest of the obstacles.

      Did the 32K Ultra Beach in 2019

      It was too easy. Not going to do it again. Everyone taking part were not funny and they made me feel left out and different.
