    Monster Race

    If you don't fancy the challenge of a full-on physical body-blaster event, this is for you.

    We're the charity partner for the Spring event in the beautiful Cornbury Park Estate on the edge of the Cotswolds. We can vouch for it - it's where our office is!

    You can choose to breeze through 5k or 10k, and you'll barely notice minor obstacles like, er, high walls, mud pits, barbed wire, sandbags and tank traps.
