EVENT FORMAT

The Warrior Beach Assault is a 10k run course (2 laps of 5k) set over the beach and the promenade at Whitley Bay. The obstacles are intended to be a physical challenge but not so hard that they can’t be done. Remember, it’s not compulsory to complete all the obstacles.

WAVE STARTS

To ensure a better experience by improving safety and preventing queueing at the obstacles, the event will feature wave starts commencing every 10 minutes from 3pm. When you sign up for the event you will be asked to choose a wave start time. You may amend your wave start time up to 2 weeks prior to the event, subject to availability.

Safety Brief

Warrior Beach Assault Safety Brief

ON THE DAY

On the day of the event, we advise you arrive AT LEAST 30 mins before your wave start time to allow enough time to familiarise yourself with the obstacles and get ready on the start line. Run numbers should be pinned to the front of your running vest/t-shirt and timing chips attached to your running shoe through your laces. You’ll also collect your event t shirt in the size you requested after the event. We can only give you the tshirt that is the same size as you ordered. We order the tops as per the orders we receive so can not change or we will be giving you another participant’s top.

REGISTRATION TIMES

Registration is in the Start Fitness Store 108 Grainger Street, Newcastle NE1 5JQ. We will email you at the address you registered with us. We will also be publishing information on the facebook page. Please continue to check the facebook page in case your email system sends our emails to your spam folder.  Please arrive with your number and chip attached.

BAG STORAGE

We’d recommend that you bring a change of clothes and a towel, as you may get wet! There will be a bag storage facility next to registration were you can leave a small bag. This will be staffed throughout the event, but please note that you leave your bag at your own risk, so keep valuables and cash to a minimum. Bags should be tagged with your run number (tags will be provided at registration) and you can retrieve your bag after you have finished by showing your run number.

If you do not have a bag but wish to deposit valuables such as car keys or a mobile phone, then please use the envelope provided.

EVENT START

Make your way to the start line a few minutes ahead of your allocated wave start time. Wave starts are every 10 minutes. Each wave start is staggered by entering the inflatable obstacle area which helps eliminate congestion on the course.

ON COURSE

The course is 10K long (2 laps of a 5k course) with 20 obstacles per lap. It is not mandatory that you complete all the obstacles. There is no cut-off time that you must complete the course in, but we will have to close the course at 6pm!

AT THE FINISH

If you make it across the finish line in one piece, then your medal and t’shirt will be ready for collection. The forecast is good so don’t hurry off, there’ll be lots of food and refreshments available from Longhorns BBQ and our DJ will be playing some great tunes!
