HOW ARE THE OBSTACLE RACES GOING AHEAD?

We are only proceeding with these events under strict measures which have been approved by our Local Authority and adhere to Government guidelines. In order to comply with and offer our #NUCLEARFAMILY the safest experience we are taking the following steps:

  • We are reducing our maximum event capacity from 4,000 to 1,200 racers.
  • We are operating a strict social distancing one way system, touchless check-in, temperature checking, track & trace and wave/group sizes of 5 people released every 2 minutes.
  • Every Rookie will need to be supported on the course by an adult (18+yrs) who can run/walk alongside. All supporting grown-ups (and children 11yrs+) will need to wear a face covering (mask or neck buff which will not fall off) at obstacles or 2m away from other people. It can be removed when running.
  • Every will need to wear a face covering (mask or neck buff which will not fall off) so the 1 metre plus social distance rule can be adhered to.  It must be worn when entering registration, in the start holding pen, at the start/finish line, whilst completing all obstacles & if a cough or sneeze is imminent but it may be removed for running.
  • All obstacles will be routinely sanitised after every group.
  • Racers are encouraged to use the full width of every obstacle & keep apart at all times.
  • Sanitisers will be available throughout the event.
  • Limiting obstacles which have high surface contact/grip which trickier to clean thoroughly.
WHAT’S DIFFERENT?
  • There is a new online ticket price to reflect the event change due to Covid-19
  • There will be no event village, food/drinks to purchase, live music, shops, camping, services, spectators or the usual nuclear atmosphere or banging mass event experience
  • There will be no bag-drop, changing tent, hot showers or milkshake at the finish
  • There will be no photos taken around the course
  • There will be no photo recognition service
  • There will be reduced Rookie obstacles – approx 10 instead of 20
  • There will be no Rookie chip-timing or certificate
  • There will be no Rigs & we will limit the amount of touch point obstacles

VIDEO PRE-COVID EVENT RESTRICTIONS

Nuclear Rookies are fun, pumped-up muddy obstacle courses for 4-14 year old kids of any fitness level

Rookies will test their skills on a specially designed fun 1.5/3km course filled with around 10 obstacles & guaranteed Nuclear M.U.D! Rookies will climb in & out of the muddiest ditches & mud pools, crawl under & over walls, up & down ramps as well as running in woods, on paths & open fields.

Just a bit of fun. Optional SUPERHERO fancy dress in this wave. (not compulsory and can be just a nod towards it)

ADULT SUPPORTER ETIQUETTE: Float alongside & step in with help over obstacles if the child needs it, but stepping back from the course, so it’s clear for other participants.

THE VIBE: There’s no pressure to complete the obstacles – we want Rookie obstacle racers to grow in confidence from their experience.

  • One survivor wall photo will be taken at the finish.
  • A 2020 medal is presented to every Rookie as they cross the finish line.
  • Expect a short stretch warm-up at the start.
  • Key-drop available
  • Toilets at registration will be routinely sanitised
  • Bring spare warm clothes in the car for afterwards & water to drink.
