Nestled within the beautiful Walton Backwaters is SECRET WATER, North Essex’s newest Obstacle Course Challenge (OCR)! Join us on the 14th September 2019 for the inaugural event aimed at participants 14 years and above. The obstacle packed 5km circuit runs through Devereaux Farm, in Kirby-Le-Soken, taking in farmland and coastal scenery. Take part as an individual, a group of friends, for charity or as part of a corporate/club/organisation team because however you take part it’s your very own personal journey to the finish line. With the helping hands and guidance of our marshals to support you along the way you will not be alone. You will be walking, jogging or running across terrain to test your agility, climbing up and over obstacles to challenge your ability and test your mettle – ultimately bringing out the best in you.
Whether you have never done an OCR before or you are an expert who has been around the block more times than you can remember, well, that’s what this event is all about; to give a different experience to everyone who takes part as you will be competing against your own physical and mental expectations rather than that of others in a non-timed race (unless of course you time it)…
Our Secret Water course gives you the choice of 3 different ‘mission levels’:
5K ‘Quest of the Masterdon’
10K ‘Legend of the Firefly’
15K ‘Feast of the Sacred Eel’
Following the Adult challenge event (on the 14th September), the fun continues for our little racers with an obstacle packed 2km course running throughout Devereaux Farm.You will also get a little more help and guidance from our event Marshalls.Those between the ages of 8 - 13 years (inclusive) can run solo but we ask that anyone under 8 is joined by an accompanying adult. Your little champions are sure to feel on top of the world after completing this mini adventure! At the heart of all this, the event village which will have street food and drink available as well as other entertainment to keep the whole family happy.
