Course Description:

The Mad Monk is where the Xrunner race series was born in 2008. The course will be your choice of 5K or 10K across picturesque parklands in the beautiful heritage village of Darley Abbey, Derby. The terrain is undulating with plenty of hills to test your stamina and this event includes the infamous open water swim across the River Derwent. We will be using our signature obstacles - the water slides so there will definitely be some chilly lucky dips for maximum squeal appeal! But do not worry, the run for the finish line will warm your body temperature back up ensuring you are ready to tackle 'The Final Frontier' a horror house of fun where you will have to leap onto 'Avalanche' if you want to grab a rope and have any hope of climbing to the top before descending into 'Labyrinth' where you will negotiate the internal tunnels in complete darkness. If you make it out of there you will find yourself at the very top of the obstacle where we hope you do not suffer from 'Vertigo' before throwing yourself down the deathly 'Drop Zone' and dashing to the finish line.

Aid Stations:

First aid stations will be located in the event village and at various points across the course. First aid will provide a 4X4 ambulance vehicle, cycle responders, and a mobile unit. There will also be paramedics present and a comfort station for people suffering from the cold. There will be water stations across the course and bottled water and snack bar at the finish line.
