MANCHESTER, 15 Sept 18

The Gauntlet Games is a hilarious obstacle course race coming back to Heaton Park in 2018. A unique race with real Gladiators challenging you while you take on a series of epic obstacles!

Forget pain-inducing runs and challenges, the Gauntlet Games is all about having a giggle – what better way to spend your Saturday than bouncing, sliding and fighting your way through all kinds of crazy challenges with your friends?

Venue Address: Heaton Park, Middleton Road, Manchester M25 2SW

Venue highlight: The water zone half way around the course – we have all kinds of crazy water and inflatable based obstacle challenges for you. We promise you won’t be staying dry (but you won’t be swimming either)….
