As many of you will have tried the Suffering Obstacle Race Series, we have taken the concept and scaled our course down so it's exclusively for kids between 4-14 years old. Our courses are not designed to be easy, they are designed to challenge and give child the satisfaction of completing them. We have great obstacles, slides, walls, water and lots of mud. Our courses are about the kids having fun and a great time.
The course will be 2 distances 3km or 5km, you can just run the 3km or keep going and do the 5km, the choice is yours.

There is a minimum age of 15yrs for the Suffering V and all under 18 year old runners must run with their parent/guardian.
There will be a key drop at registration on a first come, first served basis.. Whilst we make every effort to keep everyones items secure, we cannot make guarantees and items are left at the owners own risk.
We offer toilets, changing rooms and cold showers to help remove some of the mud.


Running Solo?
Great news! There's plenty of other runners doing the same.
There's a real sense of camaraderie on the course, you won't be Suffering alone.
Sign up 10 or more runners at once and get an automatic 10% off your ticket prices.
