This is a no-gimmicks event, a proper cross country race - no sergeant majors screaming or hurling mud at you, this is a back to basics: the mud is already here, the fences are your hurdles, the ditches and fallen trees are your challenge. The course is a good old fashioned cross country challenge set in 250 acres of a private country estate in North Yorkshire; it winds its way through woodland and open countryside, over boggy terrain and muddy tracks.
