Rocket Race – Somerset
Are you ready to take on another out of this world challenge?!
Set in our stunning equestrian venue in the rolling Somerset countryside, Rocket Race is back with a bang. 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? 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, plus The Rocket…… because every good race needs a signature obstacle.
Family wave available for adults to run with children aged 7+. Ultm8 Warrior will also be on site with the Space Cadets Race for children aged 4-9.
As usual, all Rocketeers will receive an awesome Rocket medal plus a hot drink and Rocket Race Buff at the finish line! Sign up as an Early Bird and you can enter Discovery Rocket Race for just £40. Offer expires midnight on 9th October when the price will increase to £55.
