Obstacle Mud Runner - issue 16

24 QUARRY It’s back! But not as you know it This is Quarry Events – Over the past year we have been very busy digging, designing, building and testing an incredible obstacle course, just for YOU. Throughout the 25-acre site we have created a variety of obstacles, including rope swings over mud ditches, sheer walls, balance beams, monkey bars, weighted rope pulls seven meters high and an epic cargo net climb (possibly not for the faint hearted!) Along with many man-made and natural obstacles, we have a solid run of 25 obstacles which will have you working up a sweat in no time. To compliment this there is also ‘Basecamp.’ Home to our Atlas stone lifting area, natural log press, pull up frames, tyre flip, stretcher carry, and you can even try your hand at deadlifting a vehicle! Last but by no means least, the obstacle that Uventure was probably most famous for, it has been revamped and takes pride of place, that’s right, it’s the famous water slide! Built into the hillside of the quarry and it is rapid, from top to the very wet and muddy bottom takes you just 2.5 seconds but it is 2.5 seconds of pure adrenaline. With the course now complete, Quarry Events will be running Bootcamps twice a month from February 2022. With fully qualified Personal Trainers our bootcamps will be fun, engaging, muddy and guarantees you a first-class workout. Bootcamps are open to all. Individuals and groups and tailored to any level. Plus, you get the chance to try out the obstacle course including the slide. These days are perfect for anyone wanting to try an obstacle course for the very first time or for seasoned runners wanting to perfect their skills and push themselves to the limit. Also coming in 2022 is a brand-new OCR event. An epic endurance race, The Longest Day 2022 will see you competing from sunrise to sunset. Beginning at official sunrise, there will be 16 hours and 38 minutes of competition time, giving you all day to complete as many laps of the 5km course as you possibly can. This event can be completed as an individual or in teams of 2 or 4. The event village will be on site and camping is also available. Medals and t-shirts are included and wristbands are up for grabs for those who make it to the milestone distances. This is an endurance event like no other and not one to miss! December 2022 will see Quarry Events winter race, The Hardest Day. Here you can complete 5km, 10km or 15km, through mud, water and the obstacle course with on site event village and camping available for those who are brave enough. Details and booking for all up-coming events in 2022 can be found on Quarry Events website www.quarryevents.com or on their Facebook and Instagram pages. Many of you will remember the fantastic Uventure Run in Cranford, Northamptonshire. Well! It’s back…. But a little different. RACE : QUARRY The question now is, can you handle it?
