Obstacle Course

This outdoor obstacle event and festival for children and their families has so much to offer with something for everyone. The Little Welly proudly provides the UK's biggest obstacle courses.

Expect mud, water, and over 30 obstacles across the 3k and 5k routes. Some of the most popular obstacles include the foam run, the climbing wall, the ball cage, and the giant slide. With new and exciting obstacles this year it will be more fun than ever!

The obstacle course is for children aged 4 and above, and is best suited for children between the age of 4 and 12. Children under the age of 8 must have an adult accompany them on the course, so alongside your Child Ticket you will need to buy an Adult Assist Ticket for the same start wave. Your obstacle course ticket will give you access to the Festival and everything it has to offer!

Henley Trail Run

The Henley Trail Run is also available this weekend with a 5k and a 10k on both days.
