 Obstacle course racing is becoming more and more popular - so if competing in an obstacle course event is on your radar then this preparation session is for you.

There’s only 4 months to go until Furlong Fury obstacle course event at Hereford Racecourse involving 20 of the most brilliant obstacles (high walls and low walls, monkey bars and mud baths to name a few) to give you a 5km/24 furlong challenge.  

But before you head to the starting gate join Halo Leisure for a unique preparation session for would-be racers. This two hour FREE workout - designed for the complete novice or a seasoned competitor - will be led by the Rob Edmond, ex SAS, brilliant front man on ITV’s Biggest Loser and of course part of the team for Bell's Barrel of Laughs, the celebrity barrel roll where with the likes of Joanna Lumley and Zara Phillips completed a major endurance challenge to raise thousands for Help for Heroes.

Rob will be at Hereford Leisure Centre on this special Saturday (3rd of March) before the race covering everything from obstacle course racing preparation to top race nutrition, everyone is welcome. The session starts for a 10am on Saturday 3rd of March and you can go at your own pace (just like on race day): walk or run the track, and get a sneak peek of (or try out) some obstacles, like our magnificent monkey bars or the wondrous wall! The sessions lasts 2 hours and gives you hints, tips and technique advice on taking part in obstacle course events.

This free event is open to both Halo members and non members and you don't have to be already booked onto Furlong Fury.
