The Activelife Urban Warrior route

One of the most exciting elements of Urban Warrior is that you won’t know what the obstacles and challenges are until you get here. We’ll keep this as our closely guarded secret! However, what we can tell you is that there will be over 20 different, smile inducing, obstacles across 2000 square metres of indoor space. Each year the obstacles will be different with a twist on the year before, allowing you to get your fix year after year.

We don’t want to spoil it for you but expect to climb, throw, drag, jump, lift, swing, crawl, carry, pull and more. There will be obstacle favorites but we won’t tell you which ones.

Does the idea of taking part in a secret mission as fast as you can, without being caked in mud, have you searching for the enter button? Well what are you waiting for!

What do I need to bring?
Whether you’re a seasoned event warrior or a complete beginner, 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, t-shirt/technical running tee (if you have one – either long or short sleeves), socks, trainers. You are welcome to wear fancy dress but please avoid any loose fitting clothing.
• Water bottle: stay hydrated! There are water fountains around the site and refreshments available in our event village.
• Cash: for spending at the event village. Lockers are available but please avoid bringing valuables with you.
• Deodorant: you will be starting off in small groups, so they may appreciate it!
• Medication (if required): don’t forget your inhaler if you need one!
• Your sense of adventure!

What you won’t need?

• Bin bags: for your wet, muddy clothing to take home!(as you won’t be getting muddy!)

• Safety pins, your race number will be transferred directly onto your body as safety pins and race numbers always seem to get in the way!

• A change of clothes and footwear: as you won’t be getting wet and muddy!
• A new towel: You are welcome to have a shower after the event but you won’t need to buy a new one due to it being caked in mud.
• Anything to clean the mud off before you get home!
Spectators
The site has bleacher seating, making viewing of the event for family and friends really easy.

    The course was too short and the last room obstacle were uninspiring. Perhaps do the course twice?

    Fun and friendly but the last room needed music or something. Good fun for our first obstacle course

    Good fun, friendly atmosphere & well staffed, but WOW, so so short. 10 minutes for £35. Not worth money

    Did the Urban Attack in 2019

    One of the worst obstacle courses I've ever been to! I paid £30 for a course that lasted about 10 minutes and at least one of the obstacles (rope pull) malfunctioned mid-use. Just had a real budget feel to it from start to finish. One of the instructors gave a brief verbal description of the course at the start line but there was no walk through which meant you lost time moving from one obstacle to the next. No mass warm up at the start or exhibitors there offering drinks, snacks or clothing. Chairs and sticky tape marked parts of the course and despite several course wardens, obstacles were missed or not completed properly by fellow competitors so didn't feel like a fair race. Chip timings also very dubious. The DJ and the medal were pretty much the only decent thing about this race. Wouldn't even bother coming to this event if you're a complete beginner - there are much better valued and well organised events out there.

    Good event for my first obstacle course. Some of the obstacles were brilliant fun, tough but do-able. Would do the event again tomorrow as i only live in Canterbury so doesn't involve driving miles and wasn't expensive like some of the obstacles races.
