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
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
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.
There is a float rope to pull yourself across and the crossing is manned by expert water rescue marshals
Everyone who has run at Ram Run before knows we are absolutely not riggid at start waves allocation. We prefer that you go in a wave that suits your ambition or your wish is for the day. So please do not be concerned that we are not issuing start lists and sticking rigidly to them.
