The Nuclear Meltdown is a 24 hour obstacle enduro designed to push you to your limits & out of your comfort zone testing your strength, stamina and mental toughness. The first of it’s kind in the UK, Meltdown is a unique once in a life-time experience on an obstacle course like no other – on land above an underground Nuclear Bunker at award winning Nuclear Races.
Run as a team or solo. It will be a huge test just to get round; perhaps more mental than physical – there are no hard or fast rules. Expect 14 achievable man-made obstacles (with limited technicality) incorporating a natural route of mud, open fields, woodland & water on every 7k lap. Swing, climb, crawl, slide your way round with various alternative challenges & tasks at some obstacles…oh & we’ll look to change things round during the 24 hour time limit to keep everyone guessing.
The aim is to cross the finish line & have a whole lot of fun. Pushing through & helping each other overcome what seems impossible will see you through the sunset, into the sunrise & beyond. The body achieves what the mind believes. The longest day just got longer.
Distance: Complete as many 7km laps as possible in 24 hours either solo or within your team. There is no minimum requirement on how many laps a team member does. Team members can do multiple back to back laps.
Start/End Time: Race starts 12pm Saturday 20th June and ends 12pm Sunday 21st. All laps completed by 12pm Sunday will be counted. Course sweeper will be sent out at 12pm sharp with no further laps counting towards total.
Chip Timing: One timing chip per individual or per team. The team will use the timing chip like a relay and swap it from the completing runner to the runner about to head out on course.
A screen will be available in the Pit area to track number of laps completed.
Obstacles: There will be 28 obstacles in total with 14 open at any one point per lap
Penalties: 100% completion mandatory, alternative obstacles will be available #TrustNuclear
What You Get: T-shirt, medal, hot drinks, pasta, hot showers and bragging rights
The Pits: Each runner/team will be allocated a 3mx3m tent pitch to set up in to rest and refuel between laps in the pit. This area will become your home when you are not running. It can only be accessed by Meltdown runners, Pit crew and Marshals.
