Did the 10k in 2018
I ran this event after marshalling at the previous one and must say that the whole experience of Rocket Race is out of this world from the details that the race director puts into his course to the wonderful and encouraging marshals who cheer you and everyone else on around the course. I would recommend these races to everyone from a complete beginner to the most experienced ocr people because you will not find a better run event than Rocket.The team involved make sure that you have the best time you could possibly have and you can involve the whole family as the kids will love doing this too. … read more

Route description
Route description

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.
