Why should grown ups have all the fun?

Here at RockSolidRace, we think everyone should enjoy the brown stuff. Which is why we have our very own kids’ race – bringing muddy mayhem to children aged between 5 and 13!

Our carefully constructed mini obstacle course is about 1km in length, with obstacles like entanglement, net scrambles, tunnels, straw pyramids and, of course, oodles of mud!

The event is split into two age groups: 5–7 year olds and 8–13 year olds. That way, we keep everyone safe and challenged.
