Full list of results
The shop is open and people are starting to enter. We are really excited to announce the 2018 edition of the race. We will have chip timing again with a rolling start so that you can run with your family and friends. We will stock up on the lemon drizzle cake and ensure that there are enough bacon butties and vegetarian sausages to feed a small army. Discount for teams of 8 or more. Volunteer marshals get a free entry for the following year. See you in November!
It’s truly exciting to be featured on a mainstream Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) List. This year’s race looks to be even better than last years with a new rolling start format to make it easier to run with your friends.
Bacon butties and Jane’s famous Lemon Drizzle cake ensure a great feed to help you through the mud and the rain! We look forward to seeing you. Enter soon though, the race is nearly full.

Welcome to 2017, the shop is now open!. This year’s race will be on Sunday 19th November 2017. Most details will be the same as previous years. We will be keeping chip timing, we will be hoping for rain the week before and sunshine on the day. There will be bacon butties (or veggie rolls) and of course, Jane’s legendary lemon drizzle cake.
Everyone gets a T shirt and a medal with this year’s prizes for 1st Male, 1st Female and Star of the Day being made with wood from the forest. Mud, sweat and cheers are a certainty. Come and have some fun. You won’t be disappointed!
Save the date folks. Sunday 20th November 2016 will be the next run-forest-run. We’ve listened, so this year the obstacle course will be redesigned so that there is no disadvantage to being under 5ft 8 inches tall. We’re going to introduce an extra slippery slope that is super slippery and if we can get the design right, the new “Badger’s Passage” will be a photo opportunity for all the spectators in the woods.
Have a great Obstacle Race season my friends and don’t forget to buy the next couple of issues Runners World to read the amazing story of blind runner Louise Simpson featured in this post.
Many thanks to all the runners, marshals, first aid crew and other helpers. It was an awesome event and I saw 150 smiles at the end of the race. I’ll post the results and more photos and news here later. In the mean time, check out the facebook page and maybe upload some of your memories of the day.
