Mud & Hygeine

The course and obstacles will involve travelling through mud, bog and water in wild and natural environments, there is an inherent risk of mud or water borne infection, we strongly recommend you keep your head out of the mud and bog areas and wash your hands with soap and water before eating and drinking – There are hand wash stations at the water station and at the finish line.

Weather forecast


Please note that it  is on grass and may be wet and slippery!

Where to leave valuables
There is a secure key & ID document drop at registration, which is very close to the car park, so you can leave all your other items in the car.

Water Station
Drinking water is available just after the halfway point on the course and at the finish.

There will be plenty of toilets close to the start line including disabled access toilets

Disabled Access
The event base area is on flat cut grass that may be soft depending on previous weather. Disabled parking is on grass close to the event base.  Some obstacles will be accessible for viewing if you have limited mobility. Disabled toilets are provided. Please contact us if you have specific questions.

There’s a feast after the Beast! Available to purchase is a fine selection of hot food and real coffee. Please bring cash as the data connection doesn't allow for easy card payments!

Spectators, Children & Dogs

Feel free to bring your family, there is some great spectating to be had! However, for their own safety you must not allow children access onto the course or obstacles at anytime before, during or after the race.

Sorry, please leave the dogs at home. The Beast Race locations are situated on  sporting/event facilities and the venue owners kindly asked that no dogs are permitted onsite. The event base will be a very busy area with loud music.
