As most of you will know, we run our annual Rampage Weekender event around the end of April, start of May. This year it will be held on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May. Our Rampage Weekender is a unique weekend of obstacle mud runs across our expansive rural site, complete with food, live music, an afterparty and camping.
As usual, the Saturday sees our Adult Runs take place, followed by live music and a ‘Bright N Tight’ Afterparty, with Camping. Then the Sunday sees both our Kids and Teens races take place. Our Rampage 2, 5 & 10K runs require a decent level of fitness, as they are full of gut busting obstacles and take route through many different types of terrain. Rampage attracts a range of competitors, from the untried novices, to the experienced pros. Of course, the aim is simply to complete the course. However, we know some of you want to push yourselves and achieve a good time, compete against one another and conquer the mighty Rampage course in the best way possible!
This year, we’ve teamed up with the expert team at RE: Academy to offer a BOOT CAMP style fitness program, in the weeks running up to Rampage, to prepare you for the Rampage obstacle course, as well as getting your fitness levels up, so you have more energy, stamina and flexibility. It will include a diverse range of exercises to get you away from the tedious gym routine. The range of different exercises will develop the proper form, stamina and range of motion required to be effective at this year’s Rampage. Not only will the 5 weeks enhance your overall fitness, it will mentally and physically prepare you for the daunting challenge of Rampage.
This is a fantastic opportunity to try a unique and exciting training regime like no other.
