HOW ARE THE OBSTACLE RACES GOING AHEAD? (updated 17th September)

We are proceeding with these events under measures which have been granted & approved by our local authority. In order to comply with & offer our #nuclearfamily the safest experience we are taking the following steps:

  • We are reducing our maximum event capacity from 12,000 to 4,000 racers over the weekend.
  • Every racer will be temperature checked inside your car on arrival – a face-covering must be applied. Face coverings must be worn from your car/carpark to registration/check-in through to the briefing, warm-up, at the start & finish. It can be removed when you are in the release pen at the start.
  • Racers do not need to wear a face-covering when running but as a team event, the racer(s) undertaking an obstacle must wear a face-covering and/or the 2m distancing rule applied. A face-covering must be worn at the finish line. There are no exceptions to these rule. There are no exemptions for not wearing a face-covering whether it be medical or any other reason.
  • Groups of up to 30 people up to 2-3 metres socially distanced will be allowed in any one area.
  • We are operating social distancing systems, touchless check-in, temperature checking, track & trace & wave/group sizes of 5 people released every minute.
  • There will be obstacle sanitisation in operation.
  • Racers are encouraged to use the full width of every obstacle & keep apart at all times.

WHAT’S CHANGED?

THERE IS STRICTLY NO SPECTATOR ACCESS TO THE EVENT.

  • There’s a new online ticket price to reflect the event change due to COVID-19.
  • The car-park will be relocated right next to the event village making it easier/quicker to arrive & exit once finished.
  • There will be NO event village, tradestands, sports therapy, band etc.
  • There will be no bag-drop, changing tent or showers. A Shaken Udder milkshake will be given to all adult racers & there is a key-drop for car-keys only.
  • There will only be one finish survivor photo.
  • There will be a slightly reduced obstacle count.
  • There will be no zip-lines included in this event.
  • Two teams will start together simultaneously. If you are part of a team or running with buddies make sure you meet up before registering & enter the one way system together or you may not be able to start/run with them. You will not be permitted to meet up with other groups of racers on the course. Individual racers DO NOT have to stay in their ‘start group’ – you can run your own race-pace maintaining social distancing at all times.
  • Racers must run on the left side of the course using the right side for overtaking only.
  • There will be reduced mud & water obstacles to keep in line with current Covid guidelines & we may have to change planned obstacles to stay in line with government & local authority updates.

WHAT HASN’T CHANGED..

  • There will be a Nuclear MC, warm-up & banging Nuclear atmosphere & race-day experience.
  • There will be camping, limited choice of food/drinks to purchase & Nuclear kit shop near the car-park.
  •  The courses are as always well-designed, fun & challenging #TRUSTNUCLEAR
  • There will be all the usual high standards of water-safety, medical attendance & marshal support.
  • There will be a 2020 medal & survivor running vest (Scimitar brand, technical fabric, men/women styles) for all finishers.
  • These restrictions are correct at time of web update.
