Although it is not recommended for complete couch potatoes, it is not a race that needs high levels of fitness, more determination and sense of fun. You must also be over 16yrs old. If you are under 18 years old, we will need a parental consent form too. Please download the parental consent form here and bring it signed with you to registration on the day of the event.
Give it a try
The whole race can be walked (briskly) and there is an opt out option for the obstacles . There is a non-swimmers option on all the water obstacles too.
Or go for broke
Even though it's not a race it is still nice to be the first one home!
Have a practice run
We never close the Turf Warrior course so why not get a gang of friends together for your next work outing, birthday party, stag or hen and book in with Killary Adventure Company to do your very own Turf Challenge. Not all of the elements will be available to you (some surprises have to remain!) but we can guarantee you one of the best days out you could possibly dream of.
The ethos of Turf Warrior is to finish, have fun and leave no one behind!
Are you missing us like we are missing you?
Would you like another go or maybe you want to do it this time with a different bunch of friends? Your school, club, work mates or stag party?
Available all year - even in the sunshine:
You may not have realised that the Turf Warrior Challenge course never actually closes. We run the Turf Challenge year round as one of over 25 adventure activities at Killary Adventure Company in Leenane, Connemara. We do take away some of the elements, as after all we have to keep some tricks up our sleeves for the annual race in November, but all the rest remains the same.
Who can do it:
Just about everyone. We have 3 levels of challenge so whether you want to take the kids for a day out or you want to test your football team we can adapt the course for you. However two things never change - the mud and the craic!
How to book:
Contact our Reservations office at Killary Adventure Company and we will give you all the information you require on the differing levels, what other activities you can combine it with and what to wear.
How much does it cost:
You can have all this fun for only €32.00pp for under 18s and €48.00pp for adults. We have great discounts for groups, schools and youth clubs so just call us and let us put together a package for you.
Turf Warrior is where friendships are tested...
Will they leave you in the mud or will they dig deep and bring you with them?
Will they haul you over the Great Wall of Connemara by your buttocks or leave you to dangle for all eternity?
Get your group together, register together, start together and finish together.
Work groups, sports teams, extended families, best friends, anyone who you can muster together and who is up for some serious craic.
Accountants by day? Warriors by weekend!
