Only The Brave 2018


East Anglia’s hugely popular mud obstacle race Only The Brave is back in full force in 2018 at Elveden Estate near Thetford.

Once again the event is all in aid of East Anglian Air Ambulance’s life-saving work, reflecting the importance of team work and bravery required when on a mission.

This year, the event will take place on one day only and participants can choose between a six or 10 mile mud run with up to 35 obstacles. A combined effort of running, crawling, climbing and scrambling will all be required to cross the finish line.

Get ready for harder obstacles, more mud and some serious fun!

Please note: the minimum age for participation is 16.
