Set in the heart of the spectacular Cornish countryside and featuring breathtaking views of the sea, Tuff Nutt: Above and Beyond is Tuff Enuff’s annual junior endurance challenge.

Based around our infamous permanent assault course, Above and Beyond is a brutal endurance challenge of approximately 6km over a variety of terrain from mud, to rock to the rolling ocean.

Incorporating more than 20 of the toughest obstacles imaginable, Tuff Nutt: Above and Beyond has been designed by military experts to push you to the limits of human endurance, testing your strength, your nerve and your courage. World’s End is the ultimate trial of physical, mental and psychological fortitude. A 3km option is also available.

There’s a wide variety of food and drink available throughout the day along with trade stalls and activities for families.

STOP PRESS:

What Do I Get?

The race entry fee includes an exclusive “Tuff Nutt” tshirt and a medal.

How much does it cost to enter?

We have two distances, 3km and 6km.

All juniors can enter either of the races.

Prices as follows:

3km per individual – £17
3km per team member – £16

6km per individual – £19
6km per team member – £18

I would like to do the event with my child, will this cost extra?

We totally understand you will be worried about your child doing an obstacle course and welcome all parents / guardians to run the course with their child (we just ask you to make way for the junior competitors as they embark on the course). There is no charge for adults joining in with their young counterparts. The obstacles are age dependent and we would not let a young child do an obstacle that is to difficult or has a high level of risk.

The waves will be set off with oldest to youngest runners.

The first waves will be 14-17yrs followed by 10-13yrs then finally 6-9yrs.

We have done this so the younger runners don’t feel any pressure from the older runners and to avoid an older runner pushing past a younger runner.

Both courses are designed so spectators can follow the juniors around the entire course. we have also allocated adult support runners to go around with the 6-9yrs and 10-13yrs runners. Every obstacle will be marshalled by adults as well.

How can I find my child’s bib number?

We will send an email race confirmation letter to your email address that you must bring with you and your child to register on the day. In this race letter will be your race bib number.

How early do I need to be there race morning to pick up my child’s packet?

The registration tent will be open from 8am on the day of the event. Your child will need to register at least an hour before their race.

My son/daughter does not have an ID for the tuff nutt challenge, can I pick it up?

Your child’s registration letter that you would have printed off will be their proof of entry.

How can I confirm if my child is registered?

You can contact us at info@tuff-enuff.co.uk or if you have registered through our webpage then you should have a refernce from active that will allow you to go online and check your childs individual or team entry details.

How tough is the course?

Our goal is to challenge you and push you to your limits with a combination of running broken up by various military style obstacles. the course is designed for people of all fitness levels to enjoy and have a good time. There will be plenty of volunteers at each obstacle to give you a hand if you need it, but be sure to give it your best effort!

Will there be hydrations along the course? if so how many? where will they be located?

Yes – there will be water stops out on the course, but please be sure to prepare and come hydrated! There will be two water stations on the 4km course and one water station on the 1km course. Plus, every racer will receive a bottle of water at the finish line.

Can participants walk the course?

Yes, participants can walk the course, there is no time limit to finish the race.

Can participants go around an obstacle?

You will not be forced to participate in anything you do not feel comfortable with. We believe that the course is a challenge not a race and the only person you are challenging is yourself. so we encourage participants to do the course at their comfort level. There will be plenty of marshals on the obstacles there to encourage you or help you to the next step. If you choose to go around an obstacle, you will still get a finishers medal.

Will it be necessary to swim as part of the obstacles?

No – the event does include water obstacles but remember, it’s not compulsory to do an obstacle. Most water crossings are accessible on foot and may come up to about your waist but any that are deeper will have assistance from ropes, floats and marshals.

Do I need to go in the mud?

Getting down and dirty is the whole point! You’ll have to crawl through the mud on some obstacles but again, doing an obstacle is optional.

How can i sign up to volunteer?

You may sign up to be a volunteer by going to our volunteer page and filling out the form

Can dogs participate?

Sorry! dogs are not allowed to participate in the events.

Are there awards?

All participants will receive a tuff nutt medal!

Do you allow spectators?

Yes – friends and family are more than welcome to come out and watch the race at no charge. Please check the “parking” section for the event to see the parking fees so your friends and family can be prepared on race day.

Are there areas along the course where family/friends/spectators can photograph the athletes during the competition?

There are a variety of obstacles located near the main site so you can watch your friends and family get down and dirty right near by and the rest of the course will be open to follow your children around. The best place to come spectate the race and take pictures will be at the half-pipe. The half-pipe will be just before the finish line in the main event site so there will also be plenty to do. It will also be right near the live music and beer-tent!
