Here’s some information on Overload:
Overload Run – The ultimate obstacle course race. August 25th 2018 near Brailsford, Derby.
Overload is designed to be fun and build team work with 30 obstacles on every 6km lap, but don’t be mistaken into thinking its not tough, because if you decide to do more than 1 lap you will find out how tough physically and mentally it is as you run, walk, crawl and climb your way around our Ultimate Obstacle course.
The whole course is accessible for the spectator too and all obstacles can be seen, so bring along the family to watch you in action, oh and whilst you are challenging yourself they can get all refreshed at the onsite bar.
And if you have young ones who want to try out a full lap then that’s OK with us, we only charge £15 for under 16 year olds.
All runners will receive a unique medal and commemorative top for participating in the ultimate running weekend. More details can be found at www.overloadrun.co.uk
