What should I wear?

The course is likely to be muddy, so we recommend wearing something you don’t mind getting dirty. Ideally something lightweight that will dry quickly. 


In terms of shoes we recommend trail shoes to allow best grip in the muddy conditions. Don’t be put off if you just have normally trainers though, these will be fine just be aware that things might get a little slippery out on the course and pay extra attention when on obstacles.


Please note, football boots (or similar) whether moulds, spikes or studs will not be allowed on the course.

Lost children

We advise you to tell all children to meet at the First Aid tent should they get separated from you at any point. This is easy to find and right by the entrance to the event village. We do have a lost child procedure in place and they will be well looked after until you are reunited.
