‘The Great Escape’ is a 10km movie-inspired obstacle run which offers a unique and immersive experience for all participants taking part.
The adventure starts when participants are transported to a Prisoner of War camp and met by Head of the Escapee Committee ‘Big X’. Armed with forged passes and escape kit, they will need to break out of camp through a series of tunnels, navigate through 10km of woodland whilst tackling over 20 obstacles such as Bed Board Carry, Ives Climb, Soil Dispersal, Baltic River Crossing, Barbed Wire Crawl along with a number of road blocks before crossing the border to freedom. Avoid recapture or being thrown into the cooler.
If you’re a fan of the 1963 wartime movie ‘The Great Escape’, then this could be the perfect adventure for you.
Everyone from beginners through to seasoned racers can get their OCR kick at this event. It is designed to be fun and enjoyable for everyone while still giving them a great challenge.
