25th April 2020, The MOD’s Training Area – Driffield
Whether OCR is your passion or you are new to this fun and exciting sport let me introduce Hero Challenge 2020.
Taking over the military driving course in Driffield, Yorkshire the event promises a different challenge.
Along the route you’ll tackle the knife edge slopes of the tank track, explore the quarry where Army heavy machinery practice and cover ground scarred by intense military vehicle use. The terrain will keep supplying new natural obstacles for you to brave alongside the varied OCR equipment Hero Challenge bring to site.
The course is made up of a single 7km loop with lots of obstacles. You can choose to complete as many laps as you like or can.
Entry fees: – all tickets are intended to raise money for charities
- £35 – choose this if you wish to raise sponsorship for a charity
- £45 – choose this if you wish to simply have £10 of your entry fee go directly to charity
Waves start at 9:30 am. Registration at least half an hour before your wave.
If you are ready to tackle the course where Heroes are made then follow the link below and book your place. Under 18s will require a parent/guardian to agree to the waiver.
Car park fee is £5 per car collected on the day with £2 going to our chosen charity. The charity will be chosen randomly on the day from all the charities represented.
Volunteering for the Hero Challenge
Volunteers are the lifeblood of many races and events. Without volunteers many events would never make it out of the planning stage. Many otherwise great events stop running due to lack of volunteers to make them a success.
Many people find that being a volunteer at an event is just as (if not more so) rewarding as taking part. Participants have the challenges of the event itself but volunteers get to witness everyone’s efforts and know that those efforts would not have happened without them.
Its a sense of community, a sense of fulfilment and a sense of value that a volunteer will come away with. In addition to the feel good factor we also offer our volunteers a place in a subsequent event (which they can use themselves or assign to someone else).
Some of the roles that we use volunteer staff for are:
- Registration – checking ID and giving out race numbers and t-shirts.
- Parking – guiding cars into the car park area and making sure everyone fits in.
- Race marshalls – may of our obstacles need people to encourage racers, make sure they stay safe and alert medics in case of injuries (you’re not expected to offer first aid).
- Finish line – congratulating finishers, giving out medals.
If you think that you’d like to get involved in our events then please get in touch using this form and we’ll call you to talk you through what’s needed. There’s no need to have prior experience as we’ll give full briefing ahead of time and make sure you’re comfortable with your role.
We are a family run company with a focus on creating a seamless blend of fun, challenge, family friendliness and environmental awareness. Our events promote healthy activity aimed at helping participants push themselves further than they may have thought they could go. We aim to provide challenges that families can get involved in and enjoy together.
We do all this with a low environmental impact. Whether its our own direct action or checking our supply chains we aim to minimise our impact on the spaces we use and the planet as a whole. Its likely we’ll leave footprints (and handprints, bottom prints, leg prints, arm prints, face prints…). We’ll definitely take away memories along with all other traces we were there.
