Grail Quest is a medieval-themed obstacle course race based in Somerset, taking place over 10km. With 20 obstacles ranging from flipping a cart to climbing the the city walls, you can be sure to expect some surprises and challenges along the way.
We are now the Knights who say..."Ekki-ekki-ekki-ekki-PTANG. Zoom-Boing, z'nourrwringmm."
Your quest continues on 10th September 2016 with new obstacles, more water and more mud.
Location Upton Bridge Farm.
The race is 10km and begins at 10.00. Following a pre-race warm-up, runners will start in waves of 30 people.
There is a minimum age of 18 and all entrants will be chip-timed. The race is suitable for all fitness abilities, and fancy dress is welcomed — even chainmail!
For supporters and spectators, Grail Quest has a medieval village with family entertainment including live sword fights, have-a-go archery, medieval weaponry displays, refreshments and music. We also have a new and improved viewing area for spectators, who can follow parts of the course and cheer competing Knights on.
All competitors who complete their quest will receive a finisher's medal and the opportunity to purchase refreshments from Harry's Cider and delicious, wholesome food from Skewered Bristol.
There is free onsite supervised parking and water stations at the event, and fully-trained medics will be in attendance. For those who don't want to return home muddy, there is also a medieval-style trough to wash in after the race.
You will have the opportunity to buy the awesome Grail Quest Race t-shirt and hoodie and also the limited addition 'Knight' hoodie that both Alex and Charlie wore last year. Availability on the day will be very limited so please do order online when you sign up to avoid disappointment.
