The Suffering at Rockingham Castle – November 8th & 9th 2014

The Suffering Obstacle Race

At The Legendary Rockingham Castle

Winters Toughest Challenge

November 8th – 9th 2014 : Winter Edition

Winter adds a whole new level of suffering to our brutal obstacle race. Iced water hazards, cold wet mud and slippery slopes guarantee a level of suffering like never before. The grounds are filled with a whole host of natural obstacles, a world class equestrian course, a land rover off road course and we will of course add our own special suffering obstacles to make this a race you won’t want to remember.
Here’s hoping for snow!

Fancy dress is encouraged and a warm set of cloths and bin bags for your race kit would be a good idea.
