We can confirm that our upcoming Rush Weekend on 3-4 October is operating as planned. Official permission has been given by PH Essex & the highest Covid 19 protocol is being adhered to. We look forward to welcoming you soon for your fun, covid secure obstacle racing (always subject to change at any time by PHE)
Face-coverings must be worn from your vehicle through to check-in/registration, race briefing until the final start release pen. A face-covering must be carried at all times.Face-coverings are not required to be worn for the race (running or at obstacles) unless the 2m social distancing rule can not be adhered to. At the finish line Nuclear Races will provide every racer (11yrs & over) with a free face-covering to be worn immediately & for the final journey back to your vehicle.
Spectators are no longer able to attend the event to prevent unnecessary gatherings. Anyone not racing must remain in or around their car at all times, or visit the Secret Nuclear Bunker or Nuclear High Ropes just next door. (Rookies must now have one supporter running with them.)
No-one is exempt from wearing a face-covering, bring & wear a visor shield instead.
Only the one grown-up supporter & children over 11yrs must wear a face-covering from car-park, to check-in, start waiting pens & at the start. A face-covering must be carried on the course by all adults & children 11yrs+. Face-coverings are not required to be worn for the race unless the 2m social distancing rule can not be adhered to.
New restrictions from local authority order that all Rookie racers (4-14yrs) must now be accompanied on course by a grown-up (running or walking) because:
No, as a chaperone the adult is merely offering support and not taking part in a race, there is no extra charge.
Your legs and feet will get wet and muddy, wear appropriate shoes and clothing & bring spares to leave at your vehicle.
Yes, you can transfer out into an individual place as long as you are selecting the same distance you were originally booked into eg 7k – 7k not 7k – 12k
At the moment there is no communication to say that a transfer has taken place – is is something we are working on with our booking system partners for the future theough! You will be sent check-in passes several times in the weeks and days running up to race-day, so you will get a correct ticket & pass for registration. Keep an eye on your inbox.
There is no bag-drop, changing area or showers due to Covid restrictions. If you need to run with a phone or money – a waterproof wallet is a good idea.
Yes there is a key-drop. KEYS ARE LEFT AT YOUR OWN RISK. Bring a small personalised & decorated envelope with your name so it’s easily identifiable. Put your car key in the envelope & seal (your phone number inside the envelope is a good idea). Keydrop is at the start of your registration journey > you will place the envelope in an allocated wave start time area. You’ll collect it from this area on your exit. Alternatively, purchase a portable key storage security lock for under £25 HERE
No please keep your dog at home.
There will be a limited supply of food & drink and bar in the car-park
