Route information
Each day will host a brand new day of races, ensuring whatever day you feel like taking part, theres something for you. Take on one or multiple events, and enjoy the artisan food stalls, informative classes, inspiring exhibitions, and energetic live music in-between each race.
The entire event takes place over an obstacle course roughly the size of 3 rugby pitches, but with a variety of competitive and non-competitive options, all abilities are welcome.
There are also a number of awesome classes available to sign up for included within your entry. Entrants can choose 3 classes from a variety of options including:
  • Yoga
  • Tai Chi
  • Kick Boxing Workout
  • Main Stage Zumba
  • Boot Camp
  • Taekwan-do
This information will be collected by the event organiser after entry.
Run4 Your Life
Runners feeling like tackling the course by themselves can take on the Run4 Your Life. Entrants can use this race to charge through the course and beat the rest.
This is an individual event, each Contender, works alone, sweats alone, but will be victorious amongst all at Contender Fest. The fastest time wins £500 cash prize.
For those wanting to enjoy this epic course with a friend, this 2 person race is for you. Entrants will run in teams of 2 and can help each other push, pull, even carry each other along the course. Be the first to cross the finish line and the £500 cash prize is yours.
This is the only race that each team is asked to have at least one female who can run, jump, and carry, because 2 is better than 1.
Swarm 100
The Swarm 100 is more of a fun-run, and is the race for those looking to enjoy each obstacle. 100 runners will be let loose to swarm the course for an hour, and take their time over the obstacles.
The Big5 can be taken on in addition to whatever race you sign up for, so if you're feeling up for an extra challenge this is for you!
The Contender Big5 will be held over the three days, and this will be looked after by one of the PT’s and their team, who know their stuff, making sure that any and all Contenders know and understand the dangers that could happen before jumping in.
The Contender who does the most clean Reps Wins, all 5 discipline rep’s will be counted and added together and that will give us an overall score.
