Can I skip an obstacle?
Of course! We want everyone to enjoy the day, so if you really can’t complete one of the obstacles then you can bypass it and move onto the next.
Do I need to be able to swim to compete?
No, you’re not required to swim to compete in the race, there will be water obstacles, however anyone who is unable to swim can simply skip these.
What do I need to bring?
Whether you’re a seasoned mud runner or a complete beginner, it’s always useful to have a checklist to ensure you’ve packed everything.

Here’s our list of essentials, but be sure to add your own!

• Your race clothes: leggings/shorts (joggers will be too heavy when wet), tshirt/technical running tee (if you have one – either long or short sleeves), socks, old trainers
• Safety pins: for your race number
• Bin bags: for standing/sitting on, plus it’s easier to throw your wet, muddy gear into them to take home!
• Change of clothes: you will get wet and muddy
• Change of trainers: there’s nothing worse than wet feet!
• Towel: just make sure it’s not your mama’s best white, fluffy towels!
• Spare socks and undies
• Wet wipes
• Jumper: don’t get cold when the adrenaline wears off
• Water: stay hydrated, although there are refreshments available in our event village
• Carrier bag: again useful for wet clothes, but also to take away your rubbish and keep our parks clean
• Blanket: for sitting on/keeping warm
• Cash: for spending at the event village
• Deodorant: it will be a long drive home if not!
• Medication (if required): don’t forget your inhaler if you need one!
• Your sense of adventure: fun guaranteed
• Remember: lockers are available but please avoid taking valuables with you

Will there be showers?
Yes there are changing facilities on site, near to the event village.
Will there be anywhere I can leave my valuables?

Yes. We encourage you to leave any unnecessary valuables at home, however we know there will be some things you’ll need to keep in a safe place on the day so a secure bag drop for small valuables will be available at the Village.

Can I take a waterproof camera/phone with me?

We advise you to leave your valuables with a spectator or in our lockers so you don’t lose them.


Will there be car parking?
There will be limited free car parking available at Bangor Aurora and overflow car parking will be available in Glenlola Collegiate School and nearby at Ward Park.
