Did the race in 2019
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.This is the most family friendly event we have been to 10/10. - cool t shirts too.

I've run rocket Apollo and Discovery as my first OCR and the first for my daughter. They didn't win a best family award for nothing. Challenging but super fun course, marshals supportive and helpful. Booked on agsin and again!

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.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.
