We are v. proud to announce that we are supporting the North Wales branch of UK charity Action for Children with our unmissable Waves Mud and Mountains obstacle course race this Saturday November 23, 2019.

Action for Children supports children, young people and families across Wales and the UK. We have donated free entry passes to the charity which they will be able to use to raise vital funds to support their very important work.


Our unique take on obstacle racing is set in the kind of terrain that the name of the event suggests, with a distance that comes in a 8-10 kilometres. Deep breaths everyone, this is what you’re up against:

  • POWER through 6 million gallons of powerful waves in our world-first inland surf lagoon.
  • RUN FOREST, RUN! It’s through the woods on the next stage of the race.
  • A MUD-FUELLED OBSTACLE COURSE, including log runs, combat nets, tunnels and tyre pits.
  • THE PIPELINE OF PAIN – your grand finale is a run up the notoriously steep Dolgarrog water pipe steps.

Our course is challenging but a huge amount of fun and very rewarding – every year we do this we are blown away by the atmosphere on the day, and the pure joy on our competitors faces (yes, even as they run through that lagoon!).



You can sign up for a regular entry on our website. Runners who would like to apply for a pass from Action for Children to raise funds for the charity should contact their community fundraiser Nikki Booth on Nikki.Booth@actionforchildren.org.uk.



Everyone who takes part in our Waves Mud and Mountains event will get a chip timing, and an event finisher’s t-shirt. There will be prizes for fastest male, female and for teams of 4 and 6, and a post-event celebration in our bar & kitchen, with a free beer or soft drink for all competitors.

Waves, Mud and Mountains is a free-to-watch event, and parking and entry to our parc is also free. If you’d like to stay over before or after the event, just book our glamping accommodation online for £65 per pod per night. Each pod sleeps up to 4 people.
