Beach Ballistic 26 August 2017 Balmedie Beach Aberdeenshire

26 August 2017 Scotland’s only beach based OCR course.

Beach ballistic is an OCR event set in the vast grounds of Balmedie Country Park in Aberdeenshire and is Scotland’s only beach based OCR course.

Balmedie Beach is the location for both our gruelling 13-15k Elite OCR event and shorter 5-7k run. Obstacles are set in the unique and challenging costal landscape, including a dip in the North Sea - this will be a true test of strength, stamina and mental toughness.

All competitors will receive a Beach Ballistic t-shirt, medal and goody bag for taking part as well as a food voucher to use at the venue. In addition you will also receive 12 months discount in over 50 online outlets.

Beach Ballistic event is a great day out for the family, with Balmedie Country Park offering an excellent play park for kids along with ample parking and toilets next to the beach pavilion.
