Fit Body Farm was runner up in the UK OCR Facility of the year and is a finalist in the National Fitness Awards for Outdoor Facility of the Year 2022. We regularly have over 100 kids and adults doing OCR training with us each week and now it's time to bring a race to our fantatstic venue and invite participants from across the UK and abroad to come and take on a fresh, exciting and fun challenge!
The course will be between 5km and 8km and will be a mixture of fields, short hills, burns (aka streams) and trails. We'll have 35+ awesome obstacles spread out over the course to keep all of the family on their toes. Be prepared and dressed appropriately to get wet and muddy and have loads of fun. You will be crawling, jumping, climbing and swinging your way around.
The course will be marked and marshalled all the way allowing you to focus on your race and have fun safely.
Please dispose of any rubbish responsibly being mindful of the environment and local residents.

Arrival at the venue
Use the address Wheatrig Farm, Kilmaurs, KA3 2NG.
We will have a one way system in operation
Please come via the village of Kilmaurs and approach the venue from this side (most routes will naturally bring you through Kilmaurs anyway). Once you drive through the village and are about to exit the 30 mph zone you will see a Tartan Warrior sign post telling you to turn left along Standalane. Drive for three quarters of a mile along that road and you will see the farm road on your left.
Exiting the venue
The farm road is single track so please do not drive back down it otherwise you could cause a traffic jam.
Instead you will be signposted down a different farm road running parallel to the road you came up. At the bottom you will be directed left to take a slightly longer loop back to Kilmaurs. Please do not turn right as you could cause a traffic jam.
We ask all drivers to drive slowly along the nearby country roads as there could be dog walkers, horses or children walking on them
Car Parking/Charity/Key Drop
For car parking we would appreciate a small donation (recommended £3) for our chosen charity (tbc)
We will have designated hard surface car parking available for up to maximum of 80 cars.
With this in mind please car share as much as possible.
The parking will be very close to the start/finish line so you can leave bags in the car.
There won't be a bag drop but there will be a key drop
Toilet facilities are available on site in the form of portaloos. There will be no showers available so please bring a towel and change of clothes and be prepared to change at your vehicles. Food and Refreshments will also be available on site.
We want to be sure we can deliver a quality race for you, that runs as smoothly as possible.
With this in mind will we be limiting entries to 400 people (50 in each wave) - if we feel nearer the time that can accomadate more cars and therefore offer more places then we will open these up.
Please book early to avoid missing out
Also whilst we would love to have everyone stay all day, we would ask if possible, that you limit your time at the venue to a maximum of 2.5 hours to help free up parking for people arriving for later waves. This should still give you plenty of time to race and get some food/drink afterwards. Please only arrive 1 hour before your wave start time.
By entering, you agree to the following conditions
- All participants must wear appropriate clothing and footwear (strictly no football boots or spikes). It is also important to bring a change of clothing and footwear for after the event as you do get wet and muddy. There are no shower facilities.
- Participants take part at entirely their own risk and the organisers will not be liable for any injury before, during or after the event.
- Participants under the age of 16 cannot enter without parent/guardian's permission.
