This was our first OCR event and I did it with my 2 daughters, 1 of which only has one hand. We loved it.. The marshals at each obstacle not only encouraged but went out of there way to help both my girls get over or across the structure.<br />This is the most family friendly event we have been to 10/10. - cool t shirts too.… read more

Route description
Route description

This is an unforgettably muddy obstacle course, one for the mud-lovers amongst us. Rocketeers should brace for an epic experience filled with jumping, army-crawling, tyre swings, rope-climbing, water and...well...loads of mud.

With loads of obstacles packed into the course, this is an awesome way to get the whole family to enjoy an active day out.

You can only pick one option to recommend yet most apply. Family friendly, challenging yet great for beginners. Fantastic atmosphere, well organised and safe in the support of the marshals. Loved every minute

Fantastic inclusive OCR for all abilities - perfect for newbies and also for those really wanting to push themselves with FREE multiple laps. Industry leading marshals really look after and encourage you. A permanent fixture in my race calendar.

If you haven't done it, then simply do it. If you are new or old to this kind of event it does not matter. It caters for all abilities and honestly is the best vibe you will get on a course! I've been back.. Again and again

I first found about rocket race from a friend, who mentioned it was fairly local to our hometown. I arrived ready and eager to marshal and help other runners when needed.<br />Kerry and David were so welcoming to new faces, and very helpful.<br />I thoroughly enjoyed helping them, that I signed up for all future events and have even run with their team colours at another event.</p><p>Ive now got my son interested in ocr races because of rocket race, and he can't wait to do it again.<br />Fantastic family event, great price, great team to volunteer for, can't fault this event and wish them many years of fun and events into the future.

We did the family wave with our boys back in 2016 and had such an amazing time we have been at every event since and have become part of the marshalling team. <br />The run is very achievable for beginners but can be run hard and as many laps as you like if you want to challenge yourself <br />

The Rocket Race is my number 1 go to OCR, it's great completing alone or with friends. The atmosphere is unbeatable by any other run. The obstacles are unique, inventive and oodles of fun!

As always the Rocket Race was superb! Great fun and just enough challenges for all levels! There is also the option to run multiple laps, I did two, so if you start on an early wave you could easily run 24k!The Rocket team are always on hand, and approachable, but on the course and on social media! I have previously marshalled this race and that was just as much fun. I am returning April 2019 with my daughter to run the Family Wave, something for everyone!!!
