Awesome New Venue. Punishing New Course!


Northern favourite Total Warrior have decided to make that great leap down into the South. Fear not, for their Northern venues are still safe, but we're really happy to see them expand, as they're GREAT races.

The newest addition to the TW roster is The Great Tew Estate, Oxford, and that race will run on the 8th and 9th of September 2018.

Obviously with it being a fresh new site, the terrain will remain a mystery, but the sorts of things you can expect from a Total Warrior course can be found here.

We're trying to be cool about it, but we're SO EXCITED.

Entries open next week. And remember, there's always their excellent value season pass to tempt you. Who's in?

A release from Total Warrior, 7/3/18

Total Warrior is set for an amazing 2018. We’re expecting record numbers at Leeds, new formats to be launched and brand new obstacles set for both Leeds and the Lake District - the original home of TW for the past 8 years. We are very passionate about growing and diversifying these events, whilst continuing to make them the best in the country. To enable us to achieve this goal we have decided not to go ahead with the proposed new South East event this September.

We have not taken this decision lightly and have acted early to try and minimise any disruption caused. The demand for Total Warrior in both Leeds and Lakes, and the resulting opportunities, mean we must give those events our full attention. This is to make sure we continue to put on the very best, and highest quality events, in the country.

We really had to decide what type of company do we want to be, what are our strengths? We have always been recognised as the Premier northern event, with consistently amazing reviews from year one. This is where we are based and it allows us to make the best possible courses, year in year out. We felt by moving South we could be in danger of becoming more of a ‘circus comes to town’ company, which is exactly what we want to avoid. Our aim over the coming years is to grow Total Warrior and expand the formats at the current locations, to make it one of the biggest mass participation events in the North alongside the Great North Run.  

We hope you understand and appreciate our decision and we look forward to seeing you at the Leeds and Lake District events this summer.
