The countdown has begun for Judgement Day 2014 – a 10 mile obstacle course race coming to Bordon’s Tank Training Area, Oakhanger Road. Taking place on Sunday 23 November, it’ll be a race like no other. Grab your friends and colleagues and get set for a cocktail of underground tunnels, rope climbs, barbed wire, swampy bogs and much more.
Set in a venue typically used for military tank training, one ‘massive sand pit’ awaits! It’s certain to test even the most experienced of obstacle course racing athletes.
Founder and Race Director of Judgement Day, Mark Buller, 37, from Camberley comments: “We can’t wait to unveil Bordon’s 25 obstacles on race day. I launched Judgement Day for one reason – to provide challenging courses and events for people who are looking to test themselves physically and mentally. The terrain at Bordon is extremely tough, each and every competitor will need to work as a team to conquer the course.”
Whilst Judgement Day aims to challenge you physically and mentally, it provides the perfect day out with colleagues, friends and team mates. Mark adds: “We want all of our race finishers to cross the line with a huge smile on their face, feeling immensely proud of what they’ve just achieved.”
To build suspense, the race organisers will be keeping the obstacles and course details under wraps until race day itself, leaving competitors to only imagine what’s in store. All that has been revealed is that the course is 10 miles in length and there’ll be lots of water, mud and dizzying heights. Keen racer and triathlete himself, Mark adds: “Don’t worry though, we’re not going to submerge you in shoulder height, freezing waters – just to your waist!” Previous obstacles include the infamous ‘Infinity Jump’ and the dreaded sand bag carry.
Places for the event are selling fast and entrants are encouraged to sign up at the soonest opportunity to take advantage of the pre-event discount prices. Each competitor will receive a finishers T-shirt, race medal and
free digital photos of their journey around the course. Plus, for each entry received, £1 is donated to charity partner, SportsAid. This event is also the first time where chip timing will be available for all competitors, perfect for those wanting to track their speed across 10 miles of mud, sand and water.
Tickets are now priced at £65. For more information and to secure your place, visit http://www.judgement-day.co.uk/ or take a look at Facebook www.facebook.com/judgementdayuk and Twitter @judgementdayuk
