Brutal - Ower Challenge!

Saturday 4th May


The event takes place on the private Ower Shooting Ground. The area features plenty of rugged terrain, woods and the aptly named River Blackwater. There is a large open field where the event HQ will be based allowing plenty of room for teams and supporters to gather during the event.

We are repeating the 4 hour format offering the chance to run solo, as a pair or in a team of 4. There will also be the option for kids to run a single lap of the course. You can just run a couple of laps if you wish or for the whole 4 hours - the choice is yours!
The Format

The course loop will be somewhere in the region of 4km. The challenge is to complete as many laps as you can within 4 hours. You can do this either on your own, as a pair or a team of 3 or 4. The pairs and teams will hand over in between each lap. This event is canicross friendly.

The kids option will allow them to run a single lap at any point during the 4 hours. They can either run by themselves or with an adult taking part themselves. Anyone under 11 MUST be accompanied by an adult throughout the course.

There will be on site catering with hot and cold food plus there is a McDonald's within walking distance.
