Our 3.5K race will have you running, jumping, crawling and wading over different types of obstacles and the best part is you can all do it together, we even have an 84ft long junior slide. We welcome parents/guardians to take part with their children. We were one of the first races to hold a junior run and we pride ourselves on building a course as similar to the adult one as possible. It even takes place on a section of the adult route. The race is set within the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside and includes quarries, woodland, streams and fantastic running routes. It's far from your average race! If your looking for new ways to get the kids active and love spending time together as a family then we are the perfect race for you. We're a family run company so we know what it takes to put on a race that you can all enjoy together!

Wolf Run – Autumn Wolf Midlands
Leamington Spa, West Midlands, United Kingdom

The ancient woodland trails and deep water crossings make this course a favourite for many. High climbing nets, log walls and the famously fast landslide are just a few of the challenges that you will face throughout the 10k course.

Whether you are running or spectating, the mud is something to behold. Coated from head to toe Wolf Runners cross the finish line in front of the crowds to receive their well deserved and collectable Finishers Shirt.

There is plenty for friends and family to do and see in the event village, with 5 obstacles accessible to view as well as live footage on the big screen from around the course. A variety of exhibitors, Resident DJ, food stalls and much much more.

Five impressive obstacles are located within the Start/Finish area, close to the event village. This makes for great viewing as family and friends can enjoy the chance to soak up the atmosphere and support runners charging through the last 500m of our varied and testing course. The finish line is an obstacle in its own right and you will have deserved a finishers shirt and goodie bag by the time you get there!

Please note that there is no public transport to the run site. The best way to get to us is by driving. Leamington Spa train station is only 4 miles away. It is advisable to pre book local taxis to and from the station due to high demand on event weekends.

What you need to know about Obstacle Races

Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) involves a competitor travelling on foot overcoming various physical challenges or obstacles. The most common form of these are a combination of mud and trail runs, and the big players in the space are Tough Mudder, Spartan Race & Born Survivor.

Different obstacle event types

The obstacles used are often similar to those used in military training and tend to include climbing over walls, carrying heavy objects, traversing bodies of water, crawling under barbed wire and jumping through fire. They’re epic when done with friends, and these events are big on the social side so get a team together, get the war paint on and get ready for big celebrations and post-race beers.

Find the right obstacle race for you

These obstacle races are happening all over the world, with varying style and difficulty, so it’s time to jump on that bandwagon! Here are some of our most popular events, if you haven’t done one before, you absolutely must.
