We promised you a Bigger, Better, Bing Blazer and we hope you feel like we delivered.

In particular we were pleased to read things like “probably the biggest obstacle in Scotland”, “the best race pack in Scotland” and “maybe the longest monkey bars in Scotland” in the multiple reviews we have received.
In only our secondevent we really tried to push the boundaries and improve the Bing Blazer… but the good news is it doesn't stop here!
More and more people are signing up for obstacle course races
...and it’s because they love them.
So what is it that people love about obstacles and if you haven’t already done one, this is why you should.
1) Running is tough!
Running is physically and mentally tough. It is very repetitive, raising the risk of repetitive strains and for most people it is boring.
So after people do achieve their 5k, 10k and half marathon goals they start to think doing the same thing for hours on end is boring!

This is why obstacle course races are fast becoming a popular goal.
