Training/Preparation Advice from Personal Best
Advice on how to prepare for Bing Blazer 2015 obstacle course in May next year from training partner Personal Best.
Baboon Bars Obstacle
What better place to start than the classic Baboon Bars obstacle which will be in the next Bing Blazer obstacle course race event.
The Baboon Bars is the nemesis of many obstacle course racers and usually ends up in a wet and muddy dip if you don’t make it to the end.
So how do you conquer the Baboon Bars challenge?
Bing Blazer team up with Edinburgh College to offer Sports Massages
The Bing Blazer team are excited to announce a new partnership with Edinburgh College.
Students from Edinburgh College will provide massage treatments before and after the event.
As if your Bing Blazer medal at the finishing line wasn’t enough to get you through the 10 km run of water, mud, hills and obstacles, there is now an extra incentive of a massage for your aching muscles.
All we ask in return for your massage is a donation to our chosen local charity, Bosom Buds of Scotland.
1st Obstacle Course Race a Big Success!
Bing Blazer 2014 was a first time event for the Bing Blazer team in Scotland and an awesome weekend through the support of Bing Blazers of all ages.
Teams from all over Scotland, Ireland and England come together to take part in the sport we all love - Obstacle Course Racing
Obstacle course learning curve
As the first obstacle race on the Bing it was a huge learning curve and there is lots that we can work on to make the 2015 obstacle course race even better.
There was early issues with course markings when a piece of tape snapped from the wind, causing confusion, and an arrow on the cycle track wasn't visible enough.
There was also some inaccuracies with our timing results which we have explained on our timing post and will be resolved for next year.
You've done it! Done & Dusted!
That's Bing Blazer over for 2014 and the results are in! Congratulations to everyone who took part; it was a great day! Let's do it again; looking forward to next one already!
