Race Description

From the guys behind the legendary Rat Race comes the Green Belter – an Adventure on your doorstep offering a multi-sport mix of biking, running, a wee splash in our kayaks and our trademark mighty “Green Machine” obstacle course thrown in for good measure.

Our 2011 season offers 5 dates: Three action-packed events within an hour and a bit of central London, a brand-spanking new event in Yorkshire and a gleaming new date North of the Border in central Scotland. All of our venues feature pristine countryside, fresh air and a Belter of an adventure laid on by the ever-innovative Rat Race events crew. Join us this summer as we go off-beat in the Green Belt.

All events last up to 4 hours (depending on pace!) on way marked courses, take place on Saturdays and feature free parking and our bargain-laden Rat Race Store. Open to solos or pairs and everyone gets up to £50 worth of gear and rewards within their entry, including the special edition Rat Race Technical T-Shirt. With regular price at £45 for each individual that’s a Belter of a package! What’s more, anyone can take part, and no experience of adventure events is required.

Bedgebury National Pinetum and forest is the premier outdoor site in the Southeast of England. With nearly 10,000 trees and shrubs the
Pinetum is the most complete collection of temperate conifers in the world, it is also an important site of ex situ conservation and a centre of excellence. The adjacent Bedgebury Forest is great for cycling, walking, riding, adventure play and Go Ape. Safe, healthy outdoor fun for all ages and abilities in the heart of South East England. Open all year & great value for money, Bedgebury is the place to visit on the Kent/Sussex border.

Our base of operations for the day is set among 1,000 acres of this delightful forest estate and you will find yourself striking out from here across country and deeper into the forest.

Typically, you can expect the following sequence of activity, and these approximate distances, (though each event will be slightly different and we will reveal these details a month before each event):

Run – approx 10km
Bike – 20-30km
Kayak – average 1km
Green Machine – 200m max and 5m altitude!
