From October 6-7, Holy Grit invites you to test your mental and physical limits with leg-destroying sand dunes, towering sea cliffs and more than 30 challenging obstacles as they return to Trevornick, near Newquay, for the third year in succession. Signature obstacles include: Hydra, Leap of Faith, Cerebus and Devil’s Drop. Not for the faint-hearted. 

Competitors can choose from 6km, 12km, 24km and 36km courses, all designed to push you towards the edges of endurance. This year’s event also has brand new features such as, a 36km race option that goes by the name Endless Grit and a 3km race option for older kids aged 9-15. However, fear not, there is something suitable for the whole family with special courses for kids along with onsite camping and an epic after party.

Last year’s event attracted more than 500 competitors and organisers speculate that this year’s will be just as popular. Lucky for you, Holy Grit are providing a special early booking offer to readers of our magazine. Book by Sunday August 19 and prices start from only £55 for adults and £15 for children (aged 5 to 15). So make sure to be quick on your feet so you don’t miss out!

All competitors receive a free finisher T-shirt and a medal. There are also discounts available online for group entries as well as great value camping packages, which include a free pint and entry to the event after-party.
