Refreshments will supplied by The Fallen Tree Coffee Truck ( The best coffee around) and Venachar Lochside who will serve muffins as well as bacon rolls for breakfast and a selection of street food over lunch and into the afternoon. Don’t forget to bring your cash for this.

Competitors and supporters are welcome to arrive from 9:15am. Please register straight away, drop off your signed waiver and collect your running number. Please remember to fill in the emergency contact information on the back of your running number sheets. Start times will be on the website the week of the event.

Parking will be available in the field neighbouring the registration tent. We will have a team of “bucket shakers” trying to collect a small donation for parking. Supporters and spectators are very welcome and we request they make a small charitable donation at the registration tent (Adult = £5 / child £3). Dogs on leads are also very welcome. There will be a magical Fairy garden. We welcome all children to adventure into this magical mystery area.

Please confirm or provide your sponsorship monies while registering at which time you will collect your free Lanrick Challenge head band. There will be an attended bag drop if you require but we advise that valuables are left in your vehicle.

Please be aware of your start time and be ready at the warm up ring 15 minutes before. Please make sure you are checked into the warmup ring or you will not get a recorded time.
You are very welcome to have a wash in the river after the race (please note this will not be supervised and is at your own risk).

NO CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD facilities available at the venue so we recommend cash.

This is a charitable event and we use a manual timing system which is manage by volunteers. We always set this up as an inclusive “challenge” event rather than a race. We will endeavour to record and publish the most accurate times possible.

Fitness Ability

The Lanrick Challenge is about having fun at your own pace…. all fitness levels are welcome. 

You can enter either the 6km or 12km.

As you will be expected to tackle many obstacles, wade through mud, streams, ponds and even a river; we recommend that you are in good physical condition.

What to Wear

It is important to wear the correct clothing for The Lanrick Challenge, to maximise your chance of embracing it and surviving it.

You will get very wet and muddy, so we recommend that you wear:

  • Lightweight, quick drying clothes. Long sleeves, bottoms and gloves will protect you from rope burns and splinters.
  • No spiked shoes will be allowed. Running trainers with grip soles are recommended to help you overcome both the mud and the obstacles.
  • Eye protection for added safety.

We also suggest that you bring a warm change of clothes, so you can relax and socialise in comfort after surviving the challenge.


As we don’t send anything out by post it is very important that you bring the following with you on the day:

  • Your ticket, which will be emailed to you shortly before the event.
  • Photo ID
  • A signed copy of the event waiver.

So that you can enjoy the remainder of the day once you have completed your challenge, we suggest you bring:

  • A warm change of clothes so that you can relax and enjoy socialising after the challenge
  • Cash for refreshments as there will be no cash machines near by
