DeadDrop: Operation Kill Cupid, is a great race for those who feel valentines can often be a little over the top!

“Cupid” has been annoying people prior to valentines weekend with his Cringeworthy antics. It appears no one is safe, regardless of their relationship status. Cupid needs to be stopped and “taken out” as soon as possible!

Have you got the fitness and the nerves to track down and assassinate Cupid over a 5-8k or 10k distance?

Fugitive Half Iron Distance Triathlon

The Fugitive Triathlon 2016 Half Iron Distance in Marlow. This event is only long distance in the Thames Valley which will see record numbers of participants race against the clock.

Are you a Fugitive? The Fugitive Half Iron Distance gives you the chance to make a run for it and escape, racing only against the clock to see if you will get caught before its too late.

With only the fastest over the line, before the cut off, only becoming free to runaway with a bespoke finishers medal and the honour of being from captivity.

The event is set to attract over 700 participants, as the world of endurance sports and triathlon creates massive demand for longer distance events over the shorter distances that have originally formed this great sport.

The swim is a 1900 metre one lap course in the River Thames and is designed to make even the weakest swimmer get a fast swim split.

The Bike course is 85.6km with a very popular 3 Lap course on the far end of the route.

The Run is 4 laps of 5km route on Tarmac and Grass Footpaths and meanders back towards Marlow and into the finish at Higginson Park from the river tow path.

Man vs Lakes

screen-shot-2017-01-24-at-20-40-35

AFTER A SPECTACULAR INAUGURAL EVENT IN 2016 MAN VS LAKES RETURNS TO THE LAKE DISTRICT ON THE 15TH JULY 2017. GET READY TO TAKE ON THE MOST ADVENTUROUS MARATHON- DISTANCE RUNNING JOURNEY IN BRITAIN.

This 26.2 is like nothing you will have experienced. You will enter the Lake District by striking out with an audacious and surreal crossing of the quicksands of Morecambe Bay, before plunging north through mountainous country on a rollercoaster running route that brings you to the foot of England’s most famous Lake. A shore-to-shore crossing of Windermere at its narrowest point will set the stage for what is yet to come: Proceeding higher into the hills and forests of the area and immersing yourself into the Lake itself, tackling short wades, swims,* slides, jumps and an amazingly bold floating assault course. A trademark Man Vs “Vertical Kilometre” will push those quads to breaking point and help to rack up a whopping 3000ft of ascent before you psych yourself up for a “Swallows and Amazons” rope swing suspended from a crane chucking you into the drink. After clocking up those miles you’re going to be looking forward to a lie down and a pint, sit back and relax as you  hurtle across the finish line on our giant water slide.

screen-shot-2017-01-24-at-21-10-02

Fallout is our Nuclear winter beast… the one you need to train for – take it for granted and it’ll bite you. It’s our last event of the year on our permanent site with our award winning, old favourites & new obstacles on 7k & 12k courses. If you’re a newbie, small group, big team, veteran or competitive obstacle racer Nuclear courses are thoughtfully designed to be challenging, fun & achievable for all ages & every fitness ability.

Expect 70+ natural & man-made obstacles on the 12k & 50+ on 7k over undulating farmland, in woodland, lakes, bogs & through our award winning #lovemud – duck-taping your trainers on isn’t a bad idea! The Deathslide & ziplines are included in both courses, but don’t expect a Nuclear course layout or obstacle combination to ever be the same. 

Mild hypothermia isn’t uncommon – cuts, bruises, scrapes and sores are all abundant, but all part of the survivor experience.
