200 obstacle assult course over 20 miles
I am looking at participating in an "extreme" running/fitness event. I have seen one in particular that looks very interesting. Its called Dirty weekend and is in the west midlands (just) in a place called Burghley Estate near Peterborough.
It seems very reasonably priced for this type of event and seems like its gonna be a whole lot of fun.
Is anyone else looking at this event or even registered already ?
Hi Craig , myself and 4 other mates are planning on doing this race, we are entering as a team ( as its cheaper). We all did the Survival of the Fittest in Cardiff and we are now planning on the Dirty Weekend not sure if we are all going to survive the course!!
We are travelling from Pembrokeshire in South Wales, we all did survival of the fittest and have now got the bug for these sort of races!! I must say im looking forward to the race more than im looking forward to camping!! Where are you coming from? have you done this sort of race before?
You sound like you'll be ready for ths event by the time May comes round! Most the guys I run with have never run over 10 miles and they're still up for it !! I hate camping!!!
what??? You'll have to find someone to come with you!! Its gonna be such a good weekend, my tactic is play the "im only a girl" card and make the guys stop and help me over obstacles, seemed to work at survival of the fittest, then get as drunk as you can to numb the pain of running 20 miles plus 200 obstacles!!
May 3013 ?
At least I'll have plenty of time to get some training in.
and the hangover!!
ha ha 3013!!
ha ha i'll blame it on tiredness!
We are doing it as a team of 10..we have a mixed team, some 10k,half marathon runners, one 140 mile coast to coast in 5 days runner and the others are `very novice` runners, ie Not run more than 2 mile yet. Some have done a couple of rat race organised events, the Stockton on tees water thingy and Clumber Park 10k trail run..both organised superb.We are doing the 13 miler though as 5 of the team have just come back from doing the `Tough Mudder` event and said no way are they doing the 20 miles. It should be fun..cant wait..if I can do it at 59 anyone can..see you there.
I'm just looking at it as well. Already done the 10k X Runner versions and it does look epic. I'm going to enter the 20 miler (as it all costs the same) and hope to do the 13 miles.
It definitely looks great and at £119 for the weekend v £75 for Tough Mudder it looks a bargain.
Good luck and see you at the after party
I would imagine with 200 or so obstacles that it won't be much of a run, but maybe more of a fast paced walk broken up by, you guessed it obstacles! I might be wrong though. Never done anything like this before but from my experience of events people normally tend to help each other out where they can.
