2013 promises to be a full year of muddy fun… get your off-road shoes on and get ready for some muddy fun….


Canada Heights Motocross Circuit, Swanley, Kent – Saturday 18th May 2013

This in your opportunity to run the Beast in the East – a course truly worthy of the name, GRIM!

Plough through the mud, sand and hills of the counties best motocross circuit. This course is extremely tough and will blow you away!

The course is a mixture of trails, grassland and of course, the motocross circuit. The downhills are as tough as the uphill so get some hill training in.  Of course there will be a few added extras thrown in – including a little dip in a very deep pool.  See you on the start line!

Start your engines and enter this GRIM Challenge – the Beast in the East!

Entry includes event t-shirt, aching quads and the ability to look yourself in mirror! 

Enter on the day – Price £22


GRIM Duathlon

Aldershot – 5k run / 20k mountain bike / 5k run off-road challenge – Saturday 19th October 2013


The GRIM Duathlon proved itself to be an ideal race for competitors wanting to do something that little different on a weekend. Perfect for beginners and seasoned pros alike, the event is held over the army’s vehicle testing tracks. The runs will incorporate hills, mud, water and crawling under cammo nets; whilst the bike leg will take you on rocky paths, sandy tracks, up and down hills and over moguls on the Army's vehicle testing circuit. All the elements are there to be mastered, but all you’ll have will be your trainers and the bike – will you survive?

Oh, forgot to mention, through some puddles as well so be prepared to get off and carry that bike.

Enter as an individual or as a team of three where you must compete together so press-gang those mates in to joining you – it’s more fun.

Priced at £40, entry includes event t-shirt, mud, sweat and gears…..Sign up now at:



7 mile off-road night run – Aldershot – Saturday 19th October 2013

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will not for the faint hearted but definitely for those wanting fun. We’ve taken the best (worst) elements of GRIM and incorporated them in to one 3.5 mile loop, which you’ll run twice, in the dark with only your head torch to keep you safe…


Operate outside military protocol and keep your wits about you. During blackout, the woods appear creepy, the sand dune more hair-raising than ever, the water more sapping and the bog will terrify you!


But, there’s safety in numbers.


We also know they’ll be a lot of laughs along the way. You can enter as an individual or why not round up other some other brave souls and enter a team in one of our three categories: women only, men only or mixed teams.


Early bird entry is £25 (Until June1) and includes the BLACKOUT  t-shirt, punk music, pitch black mud baths and icy pools….Sign up now at:


Pineridge 10km

10km off-road challenge – Wisley, Surrey –  Saturday 12th October 2013
Our stunning woodland event held over the beautiful commons of Wisley and Ockham. The undulating course will wind you through the wonderful pine forests on this Surrey Wildlife Trust land.


The race is just a stones throw away from the M25 / A3 junction which is easily accessible and there is ample event parking at the Royal Horticultural Society's Gardens at Wisley.

We can only take 1000 entries for this event and we'd hate you to be disappointed so please do not delay your entry for too long.


The perfect warm up for the GRIM - See you in the forest!


Entry fee - £18 which includes a Finishers Tee Shirt..... Sign Up at:



GRIM Challenge – the original

8 mile off-road challenge – Aldershot – Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December 2013


The GRIM Challenge continues to go from strength to strength. Last year’s event sold out well in advance as over 7,000 nutters took to the Army’s vehicle testing tracks.

The course promises all of the usual mud, trails, hills, cammo nets and those famous waist high GRIM puddles, we will also be including the ‘big dipper’ sand dune for good measure!

As in previous years, you can enter as an individual or as a team of three so round up your friends and join in the fun.

Entry is £30 and includes the famous GRIM t-shirt, punk music, a mud bath and icy pools to wade through….Sign up now at:
