Over the last four or five years Obstacle Course Running (OCR) has become more of a household name, with the events attracting larger numbers than ever before.
But bespoke training for these "assault course" events has up until now been difficult to replicate. Your normal training run, even a trail run, doesn't generally incorporate many walls, monkey bars, A-frames, crawl unders, rope climbs, mud filled ditches and water crossings.
At the Obstacle Gym the experienced design team have put together a course that ticks all these training boxes. The 900 metre course set in the quiet Leicestershire woods in Shawell, offers more than just tricky trail running terrain, but also includes 30 obstacles that take you from a belly crawl right up high on balance beams, walls, ropes and A-frames. Obstacles range from wet to dry and there is always mud on the course.
The Obstacle Gym (TOG) staff are always on hand to give advice and training tips for all kinds of obstacles and fitness issues.
