Bing Blazer: Park Life 2016 Course Information

Obstacle Race Course Details - 2016

Scotlands first multi-lap endurance OCR and the first UK OCR event to use GPS tracking for runners is back! Park Life is fast becoming the first choice for OCR runners who want more obstacles and more laps!

This is obstacle course race at Beecraigs on 3rd September 2016

The event now has even more options and distances to sign-up for. We have introduced the 5km option, which now joins the 10km route as our 2 single lap choices. However for those where one lap is not enough we have the 240 challenge!

The 240 challenge is as many laps as you can possibly do in 240 minutes. There is a pit area to rest, eat and or drink between laps. The challenges can be done individually or as a team.

There are lot's of obstacles such as monkey bars, scaffolding, log carries, walls and a water based obstacle section at the loch. This is manned and has water safety equipment.  People can opt out of the water obstacle in exchange for a penalty exercise.

The event is timed and will be a bit like watching Formula 1.  We will have live race times, so you can watch when your friends/ family are on course, in the pit or complete. We think this is a first in Scottish obstacle course racing.

We also have a 1km event for 12-16yr olds and a 200m event for 5-11yr olds. 

In 2016 we have something for everyone...

Whether you are new to obstacle course racing (OCR), a seasoned OCR addict or anything in between you are going to love the Park Life 2016.

What's new for 2016?

Park Life: Bairns. This is a 200m event for the future of OCR. The event is in the afternoon for 5-12yr olds. It includes basic obstacles and all entrants must be accompanied by an adult (16yrs+). This event is not timed. All entrants receive a medal and a goody bag. This event lasts 15 minutes, so youths can do multiple laps in the time period.

Park Life: Teen-Mudster. This event is in the afternoon for 12-16 year olds. It is 1 km long and includes obstacles with a higher difficulty rating than the Park Life Bairns, but lower than the adult course. This event is not timed. All entrants receive a medal and a goody bag. The first 3 males and females receive trophies. This event lasts 30 minutes, so youths can do multiple laps in the time period.

The 5km Park Life course. For those looking for a shorter course.

Park Life 2016 is for all ages and all abilities. 

So what do you do now? 

Train with no limits. Train because you can, because it’s fun and because you look at an obstacle course like it’s a play park.

Push your bodies, strengthen your minds and sign up for the Park Life. The first obstacle, easy to overcome, is signing up!
