Thank you choosing possibly the best value for money Obstacle Course Race in the country. New obstacles added every race. A 5km as well as the 10km route. Both routes finishing on arguably the toughest and most famous assault course in the UK.
The concept of the race is simple, the entrance fee is to cover running costs, goody bag, logo beanie, medals etc. A lot of the costs are met by sponsors and donations by local companies. Marshals again the same way. This can enable a competitor to raise funds by sponsorship; most of the sponsorship can then go to the cause and not on the cost of the race.
This race is in partnership with The Army Benevolent Fund “The Soldiers Charity”, but you can raise funds for whoever you like, or simply run it for fun, it all helps with awareness. For more information or you wish to raise sponsorship or donate, please ask and we will get a sponsorship pack to you. Any team that raises sponsorship for the ABF, will be eligible for a 20% discount.
