There will be natural and manmade obstacles that you may need help to complete but it is all part of the challenge, and just when you think you can’t take anymore there is a surprise in store (let’s just say you better get on that stepper). This course is designed by firemen who got silver medals in the world police and fire games last year, so you can expect it to be full of exciting and tricky obstacles. Event schedule and times: Saturday 19th July. Registration begins at 10am on the morning and the race starts at 12.00. There is ample parking in the forest park. Waivers will need to be signed on the day. It is advisable to wear training gear for the race but remember to bring a change of clothes to enjoy the festivities afterwards.
