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.

The Lake District is the Adventure Capital of the UK and is the home of Total Warrior, which is now going into its eigth year.

It is the perfect venue for an obstacle race with endless hills, rivers, mud (tonnes of it!), woodland and the rugged Lake District terrain.

This is before the 25 30 punishing Total Warrior obstacles even get a mention! No wonder this event sells out months in advance.
