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.

We return to Aston Down Airfield with an expanded event list. This hilly terrain greatly increases the difficulty of the race; many commented last year that the Super felt more like a Beast.

Prepare for a relentless barrage of short climbs, alongside the traditional crawls, climbs and carries that make up our unique obstacle races. This will be the perfect training ground for Edinburgh which might be even tougher.

You will need to spend plenty of time training in the hills to get your body ready for this race, and make it across the finish line. Your legs will be screaming by the time you make it across the finish line.

If you love running up hills you will want to be here at Aston Down, with a Sprint, Super, and Hurricane Heat - brand new to the UK - on offer.
