What is Rocket Race ?……

Any obstacle course runner out there worth their dirty trainers knows that a truly epic race really is all about the obstacles; that, and the mud of course. Launched in the South West in October 2015, Rocket Races’ mission is to flip the obstacle race norm on its head, a squeeze a huge variety of exciting challenges into every available space, finally offering a course that really is more about the obstacles than the running – an Obstacle Heavy Race (OHR). After all, if we all loved the running we’d be doing trail runs and marathons right?! Participants can expect to encounter a mammoth 30+ obstacles across our 8k course, making it the perfect event for those who’ve always fancied getting their trainers dirty. For the regular OCR runners out there, we throw down the gaunlet and ask, how many laps of Rocket Race can you handle?! That’s right, will you become a Rocket Legend and complete three, four or even five laps of Rocket before the sweeper wave heads out at 2pm? Thats right, a potential run of 24k+ and over 90 obstacles! Whether you’re new to obstacle course running, or permanently mucky at the weekends, Rocketeers can expect an unforgettable experience packed with jumps, crawls, tyres, ropes, water, mud and much more…
