We are hoping the event will attract both men and women to the event as it truly is a brilliant event. I know from experience that some people love to race round and try to win the event and others would be happier to just plod around and get to the finish line. I personally will be running it twice, once to get round as quick as possible the other with friends so going round as a group.
With regards to queues each wave will be limited to 150 people so with people running at different times/speeds we hope that any kind of backlog of people at obstacles wont happen.
We are also doing a 5km race which is cheaper than the 10km if you fancy tackling a shorter distance
You have to understand an obstacle race is slightly different to a city marathon, you have to factor in hire of the ground, buying obstacles, paying marshalls also insurance for such an event is much higher than a marathon.
I may have worded plan to have a goody bag, there will be a goody bag with many things in it including for certain a t-shirt with other items to be decided.
This is the first event being put on by the gentleman organizing the event and everything is being paid for by himself, so any exposure for the event which is free the better.
Thank you for your responses, with regards to the price £50 maybe steep to some but if you compare to other obstacle races it is relatively cheap for a 10km race.

We are also putting on entertainment, having a bar and food stands and not to forget we plan to have a good bag at the end.
