Tough Tribe race – one of the UK’s most exciting newcomers to the OCR (obstacle course race) calendar – is returning to Stockport after a highly successful debut in 2017.
The mixed terrain event with 5K and 10K versions, was established by Stockport charitable trust and not-for-profit social enterprise Life Leisure. Obstacle racing is the fastest growing mass participation sport in the UK, with around a quarter of a million taking part every year.
Tough Tribe will take place on Sunday 23th September at a new venue – Stockport’s Woodbank Park – and is open to individuals and ‘tribes’ (teams).
Participants of all abilities, aged 16 and over, are invited to unleash their potential inner warrior by taking on a mix of obstacle walls, scramble nets, high inclines, rope climbs, and pulleys, as well exciting new obstacles challenge. All we can say for now is that the finish will provide an exciting finish and in usual Tough Tribe fashion provide some great photo opportunities!
An exciting addition for 2018 is our Tough Tribe race Kids event.
An exciting Kids (Family) event (for children aged 8 years and over) has been added to ensure the family can all take part.
As well as testing their mettle, Tough Tribers will also be able to enjoy food, refreshments and family activities across the dedicated ‘race village’. With an event capacity of 1,000 places are expected to fill up fast.
Michaela Pennington, Operations Director at Life Leisure led on developing the event last year alongside experts from within the OCR world.
“We are delighted to return for a second year of Tough Tribe, which is fast becoming a key date in the UK OCR calendar. Over 500 people travelled from all over the country to take part last year, and we have double the capacity this year at Woodbank Park, where the space and topography is perfect for an event of this type.
“This year, we are particularly keen to attract people who would not normally think of taking part in this type of event. The course is designed so that participants can omit obstacles that are beyond their level of fitness. Tribes of elite athletes will set off first, so nobody will feel left behind. The emphasis is on challenging yourself and enjoying trying something different.”
