Rat Race Dirty Weekend: the BIGGEST obstacle course on the planet
You may know Rat Race as the team that brought you Survival of the Fittest, The Mighty Deerstalker and the Runner’s World Trailblazer series , but now they're going big - really big, the biggest in fact!
The Rat Race Dirty Weekend is designed to be the biggest obstacle race on the planet; the 20 mile course is set in the grounds of Burghley House, an Elizabethan stately home with all the grandeur to match this epic event. 20 themed zones make the course as varied as it is massive - with everything from the Ewok Village to the Dungeon, the zones will present you with the toughest terrains and biggest obstacles to run, jump, scramble and climb.
Rat Race want to make the obstacles 'The Stars of the Show' so how about a teaser?
Construction: crawl, wade and clamber your way through a building site brimming with mud filled trenches and scaffold structures.
The Car Park: WARNING: Cars parked in the red zone will be towed or worse, climbed all over; expect to wrestle your way through cars and buses in the car park zone - just hope you don't find yours in there!
Water Wipe Out: there’s no chance of staying dry on this one, tackle an array of giant inflatable obstacles and massive slides as you cross this reservoir.
Biggest, Baddest, Boldest: Rat Race have supersized everything including everyone’s childhood favourite: the monkey bars - all 105m and 400 rungs of them!
As well as setting up the different zones to challenge you on different terrains, Rat Race also use it as a way to help racers through the obstacle course; psychologically ticking off each of the 20 zones helps the racers to the finish line.
