Our Goal is to bring Gung-Ho! to even more cities and more people to give them the chance to experience something new. In that time, we have seen tonnes of people take part to raise money for good causes, first timers who who have never run any sort of 5k before and groups of friends who just want to try out something new.

Hi. My son is very capable but is just under 4ft in height (he's 6). Are you very strict on this policy or is it down to personal discretion?

Hey there, unfortunately the event organisers are quite strict on these rules, its more of a safety issue as a few of the obstacles are quite large and the risk injury rises the smaller the person is. All the best!

Hey there, just to let you know theres roughly about 11 obstacles, this in mind its roughly 400-500m between each of the obstacles. They’ll be water stops at some of the obstacles. Best of luck!
