    Dirty Weekend

    Dirty Weekend

    10th May 2014

    Welcome back to Dirty Weekend - it's bigger, bolder, and badder than ever!

    Expect 20 miles, 200 obstacles, some old favourites from 2013, some brand new obstacle zones and of course, one or two record-breakers. And for afterwards, don't worry - we're starting to stock the beer tent already!

    On May 10th 2014 the largest Assault Course on Earth will again be assembled within the grounds of England's finest Elizabethan Country Estate. Anyone can challenge themselves on this purpose built obstacle course and afterwards we're throwing open the doors to all those who attempt it, and their supporters, to join us at the sport's most notorious after-party complete with colossal Festival camp-site, camping, a killer live music programme and an enormous beer tent.

    The gauntlet has been thrown down and the Dirty Weekend course record is set at 02:51:59. Can you take the title in 2014? Or will you join the 3 Super-humans who defeated the World's longest monkey bars?

    City to Summit

    City to Summit

    31st May - 1st June 2014

    Some Triathlons "claim" to be the toughest. This one doesn't claim.

    In 2013, 300 brave athletes took on the inaugural City to Summit and 95% of them conquered this epic course that took them on a stunning journey from sea to the summit of Ben Nevis. 2014 entries are now open and now it's your turn to take on the UK's toughest triathlon, with a brand new Expert Duathlon category that allows you to skip the swim and complete the bike and run stage in one day.

    All Trailblazer locations have been selected for the quality of their running routes, their accessibility and their stunning backdrops. We pledge to do the simple things well; extremely well: A way-marked and measured 10k and half marathon route, route profiles and maps, professional pre-race warm-ups, electronic timing with quick and clear text and web results, free venue entry and parking, a great race T shirt, special edition merchandise by well-known brands, fantastic goody bag, superb event centre facilities, and of course, some inspiring running.

    The Wall

    The Wall

    21st - 22nd June 2014

    After a superb turnout in 2013, which saw a 90% completion rate of our stunning 69 mile course, we're back on the 21st and 22nd June.

    For almost 2,000 years this vast Roman construction has stretched across the wild beauty of Northern England, and Hadrian’s Wall is now part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. Of course, it is no longer the ancient Frontier of the Roman Empire, though the history of that period is incredibly well presented at many locations, with sections of real wall and real forts, mile-castles and Roman temples to accompany you along the way. It is bound evocatively together by the stunning countryside of Cumbria and Northumberland, rising from the lowlands of the West into the rugged hill country of Northumberland National Park before descending gently to the banks of the River Tyne.

    Your journey will take you from Carlisle Castle to the Gateshead Millennium Bridge over a mixed-terrain route that incorporates both on and off-road sections. There are roughly 69 miles to be conquered in 2 days. Or for those that want to rule with endurance - in one continuous journey.
