Race Info


The Boulder Dash is run fully off-road and involves waist high water, mud, uneven terrain, roots, undergrowth, woodland, steep slopes, loose rocks, boulders and a dark, brick tunnel approximately 50 metres in length and 1.6 metres high. For those runners who may not be comfortable running through the tunnel an alternative above ground route will be available.

Lap 1 is 4 miles and Lap 2 is a different 4 mile lap incorporating the quarry area and ponds, and as such it is more demanding.

At the start / Finish area there will be real ale and wine bar and a selection of hot and cold food and drinks available for purchase. Please feel free to stay and enjoy the evening.

Race Entry

The race is limited to 600 runners. Entries will be accepted up to and including the day of the race providing the 600 limit has not been reached.

Car Parking

There will be limited parking on site and as such car sharing is recommended.

You will need to give yourself plenty of time to park up and register before the race starts at 7pm.


Registration will be open the evening before the race (6pm to 8pm) and will also be open on the day of the race from 5pm.

At Registration you will collect your race number, timing chip and t-shirt.

Baggage Storage Area

A covered baggage area located at Race HQ will be available for entrants to leave their bags and kit during the race. The baggage storage area is not secure and all baggage is left at owners risk.

At the Finish

When you finish your race you will receive a race memento.

We hope you will enjoy a well deserved a drink or two with your family and friends and relax on what we hope will be a warm summers evening.


We have completed a risk assessment of the course, the obstacles and the pre- and post-race arrangements with a view to ensuring the safety of the participants. We will brief you before the race start on any specific safety arrangements for the obstacles and marshals will be on hand at every obstacle, and throughout the course, to deal with any issues that arise.

1st Aid will also be on site to provide assistance with injuries and medical emergencies. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee the safety of participants and you must accept that you participate at your own risk by accepting the waivers when you enter on-line.

We look forward to seeing you at the start!


Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, prizes will be awarded for both 4 and 8 mike races in various categories including male, female and vets.

Bike Storage

For those cycling to the race there will be a covered storage area at race HQ. The bike storage area is not secure and all bikes are left at owners risk.
