Race Details – 7k & 12k

From 09:50am

Fallout is our Nuclear winter beast… the one you need to train for – take it for granted and it’ll bite you. It’s our last event of the year on our permanent site with our award winning, old favourites & new obstacles on 7k & 12k courses. If you’re a newbie, small group, big team, veteran or competitive obstacle racer Nuclear courses are thoughtfully designed to be challenging, fun & achievable for all ages & every fitness ability.

Expect 70+ natural & man-made obstacles on the 12k & 50+ on 7k over undulating farmland, in woodland, lakes, bogs & through our award winning #lovemud – duck-taping your trainers on isn’t a bad idea! The Deathslide & ziplines are included in both courses, but don’t expect a Nuclear course layout or obstacle combination to ever be the same. 

Mild hypothermia isn’t uncommon – cuts, bruises, scrapes and sores are all abundant, but all part of the survivor experience.

Minimum age 7k – 13yrs
Minimum age 12k – 17yrs

The course

  1. Water depth: Water on the course is around 5’ deep depending on weather conditions. There are frogmen-marshalls in the water at the Deathslide obstacle.
  2. Swimming: water obstacles need a small element of swimming ability
  3. Water Stations: There are 4 x mains connected water-stations on 12k course & 3 x water-stations on 7k. There’s x 1 water-station in the event village.
  4. Litter: We do not supply energy gels/foods. If you use them, please be mindful of our countryside & eat them either at an obstacle or put in the bin at water stations.
  5. Marshalls: are clearly marked in yellow hi-viz Nuclear Races jackets & are at all major obstacles on the course to keep you safe & guide you.

Obstacle Angels: A number of experienced obstacle racers will be on the courses ready to guide & advise #NukerNewbies or seasoned racers at trickier obstacles – where technique helps. Angels are marked in white hi-viz jackets.

Spectators

We encourage you to bring your friends and family to come along and watch (there is a small £2pp spectator entrance charge, admission for children under 16yrs is free). They’ll need to sign in at registration before entering the event village.

Spectators are reminded that entering our private land is at their own risk. The entire event is Health & Safety checked prior to & throughout race day. Spectators must make their own decision as to whether they can reach or undertake the journey to spectating areas, which due to the nature of the sport, may be on uneven terrain.

There are excellent spectator obstacle viewing areas in & around the village (first 2k & last 2k). A course map in event village shows spectator accessible zones. Follow the black spectator signs to designated viewing areas. There’s no access to the full course due to safety concerns. Please tell your supporters to adhere to the No Entry signs & not to walk across fields of crops. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome, please clear up after them.

After the Finish Line you can take your FINISHER photo and MEDAL shot, just look out for the bright Orange vests – and remember to smile!
