PUSHING BOUNDARIES TO #GOBEYOND

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 or at obstacles but MUST carry one in a water-proof bag or pouch for the duration of the race – to be used if the 2m distancing rule can not be obtained at or near obstacles. A face-covering will be given to every racer as they cross the finish line & must be worn immediately. There are no exceptions to this 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.
  • Wave start times stay the same but do expect a rolling, staggered start which may not adhere to your published time.

WHAT’S CHANGED?

THERE IS STRICTLY NO SPECTATOR ACCESS TO THE EVENT.

  • 1 pit-crew now permitted in the transition zone, instead of 2
  • 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, live music etc.
  • There will be no bag-drop, changing tent or showers. A Shaken Udder milkshake will be given to all finishers & there is car-key only key-drop.
  • There will only be one finish survivor photo & photos from the Deathslide for all Oblivion racers.
  • There will be a slightly reduced obstacle count – approx. 70 on 12k
  • There will be no zip-lines included in this event.
  • There will be a slightly reduced obstacle count – approx. 65 per 12k lap.
  • There will be no zip-lines included in this event.
  • A maximum of 5 racers will start together. 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
  • Expect the usual big variety & quality Nuclear obstacles as well as rigs & multi touch obstacles, but with continuous obstacle sanitisation in operation.
  • 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.
