The Nuclear Meltdown is a 24 hour obstacle enduro designed to push you to your limits & out of your comfort zone testing your strength, stamina and mental toughness.

The first of its kind in the UK, Meltdown is a unique once in a life-time experience on an obstacle course like no other – on land above an underground Nuclear Bunker at award-winning Nuclear Races.

Run as a team or solo. It will be a huge test just to get round; perhaps more mental than physical – there are no hard or fast rules. Expect 14 achievable man-made obstacles (with limited technicality) incorporating a natural route of mud, open fields, woodland & water on every 7k lap.

Swing, climb, crawl, slide your way round with various alternative challenges & tasks at some obstacles…oh & we’ll look to change things round during the 24 hour time limit to keep everyone guessing.

The aim is to cross the finish line & have a whole lot of fun. Pushing through & helping each other overcome what seems impossible will see you through the sunset, into the sunrise & beyond. The body achieves what the mind believes. The longest day just got longer.

Solo prize: £500 to male and female with the most laps recorded

Team prize: £1,000 to the team with the most laps recorded
