New Location for BTB events in 2015

New Location for BTB events in 2015

The new BTB obstacle course near Sevenoaks, Kent.

We’re pleased to announce that Beat The Bog races now have a new, secondary site in Kent.

All races in 2015 will be held here.

This exciting new location offers much easier access for many, being just off the M25 and A25. More importantly it’s big, there’s plenty of mud and some really varied and challenging terrain.

For you Boggers, the Sevenoaks site means there will be more frequent BTB races with dates to choose from throughout the year. The varied ground there will allow us to construct seriously impressive and inventive obstacles. These will take some time to create but they’ll be worth the wait and make for some mighty tough races.

Look out for the 2015 BTB race calendar at Sevenoaks – this will be posted here and on Facebook in September…
