Something I Like

One of the highlights of my year so far has been, without a doubt, Rat Race Dirty Weekend. An obstacle course race…of course. Held in the absolutely stunning grounds of Burghley House, this 20 mile event included 200 obstacles and an absolute ton of different terrains. read more

The After Party

Rat Race’s afterparties are legendary and this one is an absolute beast. In 2017 the event will be headlined by The Hoosiers and Judge Jules and supported by the Hot Red Chili Peppers, so you’re guaranteed one hell of a good night in our Muckin’ massive Big Top tent. All race entries include Afterparty entry and you can buy extra tickets for Saturday night for your supporters here. Friday night entry is free and our infamous World Record Attempt will kick off at 8pm – more details coming soon….
