Rocket Race Discovery routes

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.

Marshals are a crucial important part of Rocket Race's high-energy experience and we always get the most fabulous feedback about our marshal team, so why not join the Rocket family?!

Roles are allocated on the day, so we ask that you are available from 8am on Race Day for the vital volunteer brief – we would ask that you are flexible and available to support us where we require the help. Don’t worry though, we will not ask you to do anything you are uncomfortable with.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please email the team at [email protected], and head to the event website to sign up.

    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

    Did the 10K in 2018

    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.
    Kerry and David were so welcoming to new faces, and very helpful.
    I thoroughly enjoyed helping them, that I signed up for all future events and have even run with their team colours at another event.

    Ive now got my son interested in ocr races because of rocket race, and he can't wait to do it again.
    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.

    Did the 10K in 2016

    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.
    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
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    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!
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    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!!!
