Can Wild Lambs run under 6 years old?

Yes, but only at the total responsibility of the parent. Parent has to run as Rampager but no entry cost for his/her under 6.

What is the difference between the Wild Lambs and Rampage?

Wild Lambs are between 6 and 12 years old, Rampage is for parents and guys wanting to contribute to Rampage’s charity causes.

Do Wild Lambs and Rampages run together?

Yes, they do. Chaotic fun but also serious warm up for racers. Take a look at the film.

The Ram Run at Stoneleigh Park was well liked so what motivated you to move on?

Two main reasons to move:-

1/ it is an expensive venue with huge set up and pull down pressures that killed it a bit for us organizers. To be viable it needs 1000+ runners at each event. We maxed out at 740.

2/ I believe in constant change and improvement. We had achieved a spectacular course that was very difficult to improve further. I think OCR runners welcome changing challenges

Well – you had brought in the formidable RamRig so could you not have developed that still further?

RamRig was a major challenge that could not really be further developed as part of a race without causing huge failures and long queues. Too many failures and too long queues are not part of Ram Runs focus. So half of RamRig is now part of our intensive obstacle training area at the gym and half is now part of INFERNO – a continuous challenge something like 250m long. A very intensive whole body fitness challenge also demanding good technique. That is what we think man made obstacles should be – very challenging but fair so runners can face the challenges feeling they have a chance

WHAT FACILITIES ARE AVAILABLE ON SITE?

The facilities on site we will be offering are:

  • The UK’s first Obstacle Race Expo
  • Cold rinse station
  • Bag check
  • Catering
  • Toilets
What Should I Wear?

It’s going to be an obstacle race course that takes place in summer. You will get very wet and muddy. Footwear – A lot of people choose to wear lightweight trail running shoes but if you’re worried about damaging your trainers an old pair will do.

Are there Car Park Facilities?

Yes there will be a £5 car parking charge.

Is there a Bag Drop?

Yes, there will be a bag drop service on site. We will be handing out bags in the car park for your essentials. Please note these are the only bags allowed to be checked in bag drop.

What shall I wear?

It’s going to be an obstacle race course that takes place in through the year. You will get very wet and muddy. Footwear – A lot of people choose to wear lightweight trail running shoes but if you’re worried about damaging your trainers an old pair will do.

Where is Macram?

MACRAM is at MACTUFF, Knockhill Racing Circuit near Edinburgh, KY12 9TF

Can Wild Lambs run under 6?

Yes, parent has to register as Adult Rampager.

Will the under 6 who is running free be able to get a medal and t-shirt?

Yes, you can buy for the under 6 a medal and t-shirt for £8 on the day.

Do I need to be a weightlifter, strong man or crossfitter to compete in Iron Ram?

No. The challenges do not require special weightlifting techniques. The challenges are balanced between these guys and good OCR competitors

 

Why do you mention Strong Men, Crossfit etc?

Because not many of these guys compete in OCR but they can be competitive in Iron Ram OCR. So can anyone with determination, strength, power, endurance, agility – the characteristics of good OCR runners, regular gym users, rugby players etc

If I enter Iron Ram but get knocked out early it is an expensive short race!

There are 4 rounds. If you are knocked out in round 1 or 2 you have free entry to LIDO RAM in the afternoon, racer or fun runner wave, your choice

If I already entered LIDO RAM with my Iron Ram 50% discount and get knocked out early ?????

In this case we refund you the difference

It looks like a long swim on the LIDO RAM Course. How do you deal with non swimmers?

There is a float rope to pull yourself across and the crossing is manned by expert water rescue marshals
