Rat Race Dirty Weekend

10 days 10 hours 36 mins 48 secsAre you ready to take on the world’s largest assault course, spread over either 13 or 20 miles, with up to 200 obstacles?

Children with Cancer UK have teamed up with Rat Race to bring you the Dirty weekend Challenge on 6th May 2017.

About Dirty Weekend

You can take part in this event on your own or as a team. The average time to complete the course is between 4 - 6 hours, but the record currently stands at a blistering 2hrs 34m!

It's a monstrous course - in the grounds of one of England's finest Elizabethan Country Estates  - with up to 200 obstacles and you can choose to do 13 or the full 20 miles...or the Dirty Double - 40 miles!

If you fancy a shot at the silverware (there's a cup to be won), then start your training now! Warning, this is not your normal mud run!
