Rocket Race Apollo routes

This obstacle filled adventure takes place at Toomer Farm in the heart of the stunner Somerset Countryside.

The course consists of a 10K lap around the venue which is jam-packed with obstacles that competitors will be challenged to run, jump, crawl, climb, swing, and even wade across. Participants can expect to get down and dirty in the rural terrain, and leave the challenge with a sense of accomplishment after smashing through personal limits.

Obstacle race elites might look to push themselves even further by taking on 2 or 4 laps of the course, completing either a half marathon or marathon of the course, honing their obstacle overcoming skills with every lap.

The race also offers a Family Wave, where children aged 7+ can take on the obstacle course with their parents, so bring the whole family for an epic spring adventure.
