Where the HH emphasizes the Warrior’s Ethos and teamwork to finish and find success, the HH12HR seamlessly interweaves elements of individual competition against the clock and other participants within the challenges that require teamwork and synergy.

Developed to forge the next level of Spartan, and as the precursor to the Spartan Agoge, the HH12HR is difficult, challenging and rewarding. Participants are required to be self-supported for the duration of the event. No outside assistance, no support team, no crew. To accomplish this, it is recommend that each participant carry a large ruck/backpack, a 2-3L Hydration Unit, and whatever food you think you need to survive 12 hours of pushing yourself beyond your limits. In addition, participants will receive a gear list via email that will include mandatory gear and equipment. Due to the unique nature of every HH12HR event, the gear list will always contain a few items that are event specific. Participants are strongly encouraged to arrive equipped and prepared.

In this phase of your 1,000 mile journey are the lessons of actions/consequences, personal accountability, perseverance, and dedication. You’ve mastered initiative. Now it’s time to master follow through and commitment.
STFU and welcome to the HH12HR.

THE UNKNOWN

Judgement Day Endurance events are for those who are ready to take the physical and mental challenge of events like OCR and Trail Running a step further – those who understand that they won’t know their limits until they’ve had them pushed to breaking point.
Over 36 punishing hours, The Unknown will test your ability to overcome fear, adversity and physical and mental exhaustion.

Taking place in a secret location, no details of the event will be revealed in advance – participants will only be informed of where they should meet us long after tickets have already sold out.
Interested? If you want a taste of what The Unknown 2015 held for those brave enough to attempt it, take a look at the reviews below. But be warned – the 2016 event will be in an entirely new location, with completely different challenges.

THINK YOU’VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO COMPLETE THE CHALLENGE IN ONE DAY?
Not for the faint hearted. The one-day challenge is a mammoth undertaking. Especially if the prevailing wind tries to blow you back to the start line. Bike selection and your nutrition plan are very important to give you the best chance of completion. Our cut offs are fixed and mandatory kit is key. You will be taking on a very challenging mountain run after a draining cycle ride, not to mention the kayaking. Successful finishing times on the one Day Expert class range from 8 hours 19 minutes in calm conditions to 13 hours 32 minutes in heavy weather.

TAKING ON THE TWO-DAY CHALLENGE?
Most participants take on the Coast to Coast challenge over two days and join us overnight to camp at Fort Augustus. Breaking up the challenge makes this more achievable and allows you to enjoy a cracking weekend out with some mates.

SALOMON RACE SERIES 

The Salomon Mamores VK™ follows the well established International Skyrunning Federation Vertical Kilometer® format, in which participants follow a marked course gaining 1000m of height in less than 5km. Participants are set off at timed intervals with the winner having the fastest overall time to the summit. 

Starting from the southern shore of the world famous Loch Ness, the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ follows a route through remote Scottish Highland Glens, passing over the summit of the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, before finishing at the Skyline Scotland™ Event Centre in Kinlochleven.
In keeping with the ethos of the Salomon Skyline Scotland™ races, this route is very challenging with considerable height gain, great variability in the terrain, multiple river crossings, and an airy traverse of the one Scotland’s most famous ridges, the Carn Mor Dearg Arete, leading to the summit of Ben Nevis. 
It is almost certainly the UK’s toughest 100km+ Ultra route!

The Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™ follows in the tradition of Skyrunning, which consists of uncompromising mountain running, such as scrambling along mountain ridges with steep ascents, traverses and descents on technical and challenging terrain.
This Skyrunning race route incorporates two lofty ridges within the Mamores, including the Devil’s Ridge, which provides a thrilling and airy traverse with Glen Nevis visible ahead and as a yawning drop far below, and Ben Nevis beyond and towering above.
Our race route is set within the Mamores, which are an east - west series of majestic Munros (Scottish Mountains over 3,000ft / 914m) and in this route there are four that will be summited. The Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™ was an immediate hit in 2016 and has already established itself in year one as a classic Skyrunning event.

The Salomon Glen Coe Skyline™ follows in the finest tradition of the most prestigious Skyrunning races, fusing mountain running and alpinism in a pure test of speed, endurance and skill on an uncompromising, world-class course. 
The route features long and sustained sections of scrambling terrain, which is roughly equivalent to moderate standard rock climbing. In addition, the race traverses high and remote mountainous terrain, which is at times impossible to retreat from and may be subject to severe and rapidly changing weather.
The event is only suitable for highly experienced competitors and all entrants are vetted for experience.

South East
Coast
​Imagine running relay-style with a team of 10 (you and 9 other friends or family) along the spectacular South East Coast of England. Starting in Maidstone, you will run along the south east coast through quaint seaside towns, rolling fields and the most beautiful collection of white cliffs known to man. After passing through the picturesque towns of Faversham, Ramsgate, Dover, Folkstone, Rye and Hastings, you and your team will finish your journey in the city of Brighton & Hove. You and 9 teammates will pile into two vehicles and take turns running relay style along a 170(ish) mile route. Each teammate will run three “legs” with each leg ranging between 3 and 11 miles and varying in difficulty. Each teammate will run between 12 to 22 miles in total (depending on which set of legs they run). Almost anyone can become a Ragnarian, with a little bit of training.

ROC Mountain Marathon

The ROC Mountain Marathon™ is a two-day fell running and navigation challenge for solos and pairs with an overnight camp.

The event has proved a popular choice with mountain marathon competitors with its combination of both linear and score courses that provide participants with huge choice and minimise the chance of ‘snakes’ of runners all heading to the same control.

Famously relaxed and welcoming, the fun and friendly atmosphere of the ROC Mountain Marathon™ is epitomised by the lack of prescribed start times, the wide spread of prize categories (including Veteran and Super Veteran) and the opportunity for younger competitors (aged 14+) to participate.

The use of GPS Tracking allows anyone, especially friends & family, to follow the event live in real-time and adds significantly to the safety of participants.
