Survive the Nuclear Rookies for Charity
May 14 2016
Nuclear Rookies are fun, pumped-up muddy obstacle courses for 4-14 year old kids of any fitness level
Rookies can test their skills on a specially designed fun 1.5/3km course filled with around 15 obstacles & guaranteed Nuclear M.U.D! Rookies will climb in & out of the muddiest ditches, scrabble under cargo nets, crawl through tyre tunnels, over ramps, walls & monkey-bars as well as running in woods, on paths & open fields.
Rookies 4-8 years of age complete one lap of the 1.5km course. 9-14 year old Rookies complete the 1.5km lap twice (3km). Grown-ups of 4-6 year old’s must accompany their children (it is optional for older children) on the course free of charge. ETIQUETTE: Float alongside & step in with help over obstacles if the child needs it, but stepping back from the course, so it’s clear for other participants.
THE VIBE: There’s no pressure to complete the obstacles – we want Rookie obstacle racers to grow in confidence from their experience. Team-work is actively encouraged at Nuclear, it’s not all about winning; helping each other achieve is just as important.
Expect photos to be taken around the course & posted on our social media sites. We cannot guarantee a photo of every Rookie. A survivor photo-wall is at the finish.
Every Rookie is chip timed, results available post-race.
Every Rookie has the opportunity to download a personalised Rookie certificate post-race. Medals are presented to Rookies as they cross the finish-line.
Expect a short pre-race briefing & warm-up at the start to get the blood racing.
A hose-pipe for washing hands is available after racing. Bring a spare pair of warm clothes/shoes plus water to drink.
