Race Description

On the 11th May 2013, for one weekend only, the largest Assault Course on Earth is being assembled within the grounds of England’s finest Elizabethan Country Estate. Anyone can challenge themselves on this purpose built obstacle course and afterwards, we’re throwing open the doors to all those who attempt it and their supporters, to join us at sport’s most notorious after-party complete with colossal Festival camp-site, camping, a monster live music stage and an enormous beer tent.

The course consists of 2 options: The Full Mucker (20miles) and Half Mucker (13 miles). Both distances are open to male and female competitors for solo entry. We also offer Teams of 5 and 10 which can be single sex or mixed; to complete the full serving or the half marathon.

The Full Mucker will consist of 200 obstacles over 20 differently-themed zones. The Half Mucker will feature 150 obstacles over 15 zones. What sets this event apart is the scale of the thing; but also the fact that some of the obstacles built will be semi-permanent. This means that some of the structures you will encounter will be truly gargantuan – bigger by far than anything you may have witnessed in any event to date. And some of these beasts will be true record-breakers, sanctioned for World record attempts.

The event will start in waves and you will be allocated a starting time, which you choose when you enter the event on the online entry system. You can choose whichever wave you wish to take part in and there is no ranking or seeding within these waves.* Once a wave is full, it is removed from the entry system. Once you have selected your start wave time, you cannot change it. Rat Race are the pioneers of this wave system; what it means is that you will start with approximately 300 others in your wave and together you will all burst out of the starting line and onto the course. The wave system regulates the flow throughout the event and ensures that obstacle queuing is kept to an absolute minimum, unlike in many mud-running events. The first mile is also kept fairly devoid of obstacles to ensure a good spacing between runners before you hit the first zone of the course at the beginning of Mile 2. After that? Well, that’s the hard bit and that’s up to you.
