The Great Escape 10K Obstacle Run

The Great Escape is a 10km movie-inspired obstacle run which offers a unique and immersive experience for all participants taking part. Your adventure will start with you being transported to a Prisoner of War camp and met by Head of the Escape Committee ‘Big X’. ‘It is your duty to escape!’ Armed with forged passes and escape kit, you will need to break out of camp through a series of tunnels. Coming up 20 feet short of the woods, you will need to navigate through 10km of woodland whilst tackling a series of obstacles. Run, climb, crawl, jump, balance your way over, under, through rivers, streams, trenches, cargo nets, mud, ropes and a number of road blocks before crossing the border to freedom. Avoid recapture or being thrown into the cooler. If you’re a fan of the 1963 wartime movie ‘The Great Escape’, then this could be the perfect adventure for you. Everyone from beginners through to seasoned racers can get their OCR kick at this event. It is designed to be fun and enjoyable for everyone while still giving them a great challenge. With some new twists and turns for 2017, you won’t want to miss this hidden gem on the OCR calendar. 22nd July 2017 – Henley-on-Thames – 10km – 20+ Obstacles – Tunnels – Trenches – Traps – Streams – Barbed Wire – Road Blocks – Border Crossings – Free Parking – Toilets – Bag Drop – Spectators Welcome – Dog Tag – Free Beer – Camping Awards/mementos: Memento Camping overnight available Venue facilities: Changing Toilets Showers Onsite parking Refreshments
