Bootneck Challenge Reviews

Philip Preedy

Amazing and absolutely awesome day. The best obstacle course I have ever seen. Well organised and professional. This is a must for the rookie and the experienced fighting fit. Buzz was really good. Helpful marshals and Royal Marine Matt Doherty was a pleasure to talk to. Great T shirt and medal. Day was WELL WORTH THE MONEY. Definitely going in September!!!

On the way there I did question why we travelled 3 hours to get to this event. However it was totally worth it, good directions, easy registration, lots of marshals to help, lots of obstacles, great course especially the water slide, fab tshirt and great medal (always need the bling!). We didn't go to compete in a race as at our age, it's all about having fun! Awesome day out with some fab friends and now totally hooked on these sorts of events! Thank you.

Nothing puts you in the mood for a Royal Marines obstacle course like running through pink smoke as Bonnie Tyler’s “I need a Hero” reverberates through your entire body, which is lucky for us because that’s exactly how our 5k began. An immediate downhill and quick clamber over tires was a starter for 15, with the next obstacle putting a halt to any dreams of an easy jog. It was all downhill in the figurative sense, but literally it was almost entirely uphill as we traversed ponds and hills. Crawling through mud might seem unpleasant, but its cooling effects on sweating runners can’t be understated, the same with the ponds that we practically swam through. Highlights included the sandbag carry, the two overhangs, and the slide. The obstacles required all round strength, endurance, and the ability to run full-pelt at a 10-foot high wall after a muddy 5-or in many cases-10k. Few can say it was easy, but there’s no denying how enriching it was for my group as cadets, and for everyone who competed’s overall fitness.
