Join our NEW fun-filled 5k obstacle course on Sunday, 15th July, at Rising Sun Country Park.

Not only do KIDS GO FREE but we also have RELAXED* waves making this the only challenge event in the North-east to be autism friendly!

Challenge Northumberland, the organisers of Mad March Mare and Clarty Bairns are partnering with us on this event to ensure all participants have the most fun and enjoy the best obstacles.

For anyone wishing to take part in a RELAXED wave, once you have registered, we will provide:

  • a site map and social story (including pics of the obstacles)
  • your event t-shirt in advance by post 
  • a fast track registration to avoid queues 

The event itself will be tailored to relaxed needs by:

  • having less people in each designated wave
  • discounted or free registration fees for support person / carer of adult participant
  • offering a route around obstacles deemed too challenging
  • providing a 'relax and chill out' zone on site
  • using staff and volunteers who are autism aware

Throughout the course you will be challenged to conquer some of these fun obstacles:


Pick up the sand bags and wend your way through the zig-zag roped-off area. Not for the weak-armed!


Sit down and take a load off as you water slide your way down to the bottom, getting nice and soapy on your journey. 


That’s right – it’s time to put legs to the challenge on this cargo net crawl. Can you break free of the scramble nets and get to the other side with enough steam left in you to head to the next obstacle?


To successfully complete the obstacle you have to climb to the top, and over, our giant hay stack hill. Scarier than it looks.



You’ll need eight arms and legs to quickly navigate this one. Duck and dive your way through the bouncy bungee web to overcome the obstacle. 


That’s right more leg work. This time completing the obstacle means hopping from one tyre to the next. Make sure you keep your knees raised and your hopes high. This one is fast and furious.


Can you muster up enough steam to tackle the wooden wall? Climb right over to successfully complete this obstacle.


Drop to the floor and crawl through those tunnels!

Event Information                                                                         

*This is a family-friendly course aimed at those who have moderate fitness. While we will be offering relaxed waves participants would still require the ability to walk or run the 5k distance.

Event packs can be collected from the registration tent on race day, with each pack containing an event t-shirt.

The run will go off in waves, and you must be at the registration point 40 minutes before your wave time. This will ensure that you have time to register, warm up and attend the mandatory Health and Safety briefing.

The run is NOT timed.

If you would like to register a team of more than 4 people, please get in touch with us and we can register you over the phone on 0191 4109 974 or by email.

If you would like to register for one of our relaxed waves please click on the Relaxed Wave enquiry ticket option below and get in touch with us. This is so that we can monitor the interest for these waves and how many waves we need to have. It also means we can assess your individual needs to make the event as autism friendly as possible.

Please note that due to high volumes of people registering you may not be guaranteed the wave time you have selected when booking. However we will endeavour to re-allocate you a wave time that is as near to the wave that you chose.

Please complete ALL participants contact details when you register for this event so we can keep everyone up-to-date with the event information.
