Course Description:

Run for your life through this epic, Hell-themed obstacle course.
6km and 12km courses expertly designed to push you and your team mates to your mental and physical limits.
On the rugged terrain of Cornwall's sand dunes and sea cliffs, Holy Grit brings together challenging obstacle course racing with live music and an awesome beach festival. We've even managed to gain exclusive access to Trevornick, a 5 star camping and touring haven with golf, go-karting, segway racing and a fun park.
Finished the race? Jump in a hot shower and get ready for sun, sea, surf and one Hell of a party.

Aid Stations:

Health and safety stations will be throughout the course as well as areas to pick up food and water.


Spectators are free


Parking is free

Post Party:

The event takes place at a 5 star campsite with surfing, golf, go-karting, segway racing and a fun park.
After the race you can jump in a hot shower. In the on-site club there will be a chilled out acoustic set on Friday night and a larger after party DJ set on the Saturday night.


To participate in a Holy Grit obstacle race you must be over 16 years old at the time of the event (a 15 year old can sign up as long as they are 16 when the event occurs). Any participant aged 16 or 17 must register and run with a participating chaperone aged over 18. 
After the run you'll probably be looking pretty gritty so you'll want a towel and wash stuff for the showers, as well as a change of clothes. If you're camping you'll need a tent.
We recommend arriving at least 1 hour before your race time to allow for registration. Group warm ups will happen 30 minutes before each wave. 
You need to be able to swim. Some of the obstacles will be in water as deep as 8 foot.
Participant safety is our number one priority. There will be trained first aiders on site to deal with any of your bumps and bruises.
This will not be timed. Holy Grit is a challenge, not a race. The aim is to beat the course, not your friends.
You can go around obstacles if you need to, but the guilt might last forever.
You can bring your pet, as long as there is someone to take care of it while you race.


You are encouraged to sign up as a team and bring your friends as you will need help to get over and through many of the obstacles.
