Hard as OAK >

Sign up, before your brain figures out what you’re doing

With over 50 man-made and natural obstacles, this is Ireland's hardest 10km challenge.

Course Obstacles

We at HaO have scoured the world looking for exciting and innovative obstacles to bring to the North West.

After much research and testing, we finally have a set of obstacles that will truly test your grit.
You may hesitate at what lies before you but if you dig deep, you may be surprised at what you can achieve if you give it a go.

HaO is all about having fun and challenging yourself.

If you think a particular obstacle isn’t for you, don’t do it. However, if you are skipping an obstacle to improve your time, then the only person you are cheating is yourself.

We would encourage all participants to complete as many of the obstacles as possible.

Check out the list of some of our obstacles. You can follow us on Facebook and we will be sharing footage of them as the event looms....watch this space!
