NEXT OPP Spartan Time Trials
Saturday 6th November 9.00am
OPP Spartan time trial is a chance to train under more race like conditions, 32 Spartan type obstacles and carries over 1km.
Its a self timed event with penalties for failed obstacles or you can go head to head with somebody or just run round with friends for fun.
You will be set two at a time at 30 second intervals , Racers will be set of first best time is currently 11mins 7sec, there is an opportunity to run more than once but you will need to have started your second attempt by 9.40am cut of time is 10.15am
Rules (These are going to kept simple)
15 burpee penalty for obstacle failure, you have to attempt the obstacle first
You MUST complete ALL CARRIES AND THE TYRE FLIP
On single obstacles first to touch the obstacle has first attempt-if you fail you go straight to your burpees
Fastest time must be a clear round to be recorded
You must be considerate of others during your round, if somebody is clearly faster than you then give way to them
Be honest - there is nothing to be gained by cheating - i expect everyone to take there penalties if needed and to be honest with there timings
Welcome to the Obstacle Play Park
The Obstacle Play Park or OPP has been designed for all levels, from the fun runner who wants to learn more, to the elite OCR runners who want to improve and practice their existing obstacle skills, it also caters for anyone who might just want to have a play on some obstacles and people that want to improve their fitness in a fun way, we are not a gym, who wants to be inside with rows of other gym goers on treadmills and bikes when you can be outside in the fresh air getting fit in a different, fun and functional way, it's also a great place for parties with a difference.
Have a look around the site and if you can't find something that fits you then please get in touch and let's see what we can do.
