The 'Mad March Mare' will put you up against all the elements you can imagine, battle against the earth, our wooded zone will have you climbing up and down huge ravines, you will ascend and descend over 500 metres. Plough through fire obstacles if the wind doesn't put them out, our venue can virtually guarantee you will be fighting against the wind at some point. Struggle through the freezing cold water, we have lots of cold water for you to endure and finally when you mix earth and water together you get MUD, lots and lots of Mud!!
We do have a heart though, when you finish the course we have made sure you have the chance to celebrate your amazing achievement by opening up the fantastic facilities at Hexham Racecourse for you to enjoy.
When you finish we will provide you with a hot drink and snacks to give you a quick energy hit so you can get changed out of your fancy dress clothing. What! ... you aren't going to wear fancy dress? ... no worries ... no matter what you wear, it won't resemble what you started in!!
At the Racecourse, we will provide adequate changing and showering facilities. If you are too tired to get changed, you can still join others for a well earned drink in the bar, no matter how muddy you are! For those of you that do want to stay and get changed, you can enjoy the entertainment provided by local bands that will be in several bars across the finish area. Come and challenge yourself to the limit, you would be MAD not to!!
