A unique, all terrain obstacle course returns to the Cornish coast next month to push contenders’ physical and mental strength to the limits on.

Holy Grit will be at Trevornick for the second year running, and this time there will be a brand new 1.5 km kids’ obstacle course for the mightiest minis who want to copy mum or dad and give it a go.

Science in Sport (SIS) is also going to be on-board this year, providing participants with energy gels as many of the obstacles will be doubled up or expanded from last year.

Holy Grit will present contenders with a weekend of coastal terrain challenges across sand dunes, beaches and sea cliffs, alongside bouncy castles, live music, a fun park, crazy golf, surf lessons, hot showers, live music and free pints for all campers.

Every element is included in the course - water, fire, earth and wind. With names like Twisted Torment, Gates of Hell and Buried Alive, the challenges sound more like terrifying apocalyptic punishments than exercises. With 6km, 12km or 24km courses on Cornwall's leg-destroying sand dunes and towering sea cliffs, more than 30 epic Hell-themed obstacles and runners leaving in waves every 20 minutes from 10am - 1pm on Saturday, October 7, the event is for the toughest of the tough.

There are three levels of race designed to suit every level: the 6km Deep Grit with more than 20 obstacles, the 12km God of Grit which adds an extra 6km around Cornwall's towering sea cliffs and has more than 30 legendary obstacles, and the 24km Apocalypse Grit for the certifiably crazy contenders willing to undertake two laps of God of Grit and earn themselves the coveted title of Apocalypse Survivor.

For the little ones, with 1.5 kilometres of mud, grit and miniature obstacles, it will be an experience they won't forget. For those parents and guardians who want to help their children complete the course, Holy Grit’s marshals will be on hand to make sure you both have the best time.

Enveloped in rugged coastal territory, Trevornick knows how to pick up the pieces when competitors are dirty and broken. Delicious warm food, soothing hot showers, a place to party and a place to sleep; everything a victorious God of Grit needs after an epic journey through Hell.

When the fun of the course is over, there is lots for the contestants and their supporters to enjoy including live music, crazy golf or go-karting. If anyone can still stand, there is the option to rent a wetsuit and jump in for a surf with the legends at the Holywell Bay School of Surf.

Competitors will receive a free finisher T-shirt, medal and goody bag, plus there is a free pint of lager, cider or soft drink for every camper. There will be an after party on the Saturday night, groups of four or more will receive a 20 per cent discount and groups of more than seven will receive a 25 per cent discount.

Camping is free for under 18s, entry prices start from £50 for adults and £15 for children aged between nine and 12. For more information, contact info@holygrit.co.uk or go to holygrit.co.uk
