 RESULTS – Ellington Banks, 3rd SEPT 2016

You can’t win against mother nature, so we at Run The Elements have teamed up with her to create obstacle courses in some of the most challenging environments that she has created. The inaugural event is being held at Ellington Banks near Ripon, North Yorkshire. This is where the army test themselves.

Along with challenging obstacles and bone crushing terrain you can expect a few surprises on the way.

If you think you are up to the challenge of taking on the ultimate test then there is something for all fitness levels to participate in.

Are you an individual who wants to run with the extreme athletes over the full 10km? Or are you just doing it for fun and want to try the 5km course? Whatever the answer, then this event is for you.

Athletes, Individuals, Teams, Fancy dress, Charity runners, all are welcome!

The Course

2016 is going to be epic as Run The Elements is coming to Ripon to challenge any individual/teams that think they are tough enough.

You will have lots of mud, hills, water, fire, wind to get through on the day which will challenge any mud runner.

Obstacles such as;

Hell Banks

Gentle Breeze


Just to mention a few!

Each venue is specifically chosen for the extreme terrain, but be aware the elements will appear at all locations!


To be classed as an official team (for team discounts) you need to have at least 4 team members – the bigger your team, the bigger your discount.

The aim as a team is to work together to make sure every team mate completes the course (no one gets left behind!) or they can sprint it out to get a years worth of bragging rights.

We will get a lot of aspiring teams wishing to tackle Run The Elements this year, so book early to avoid disappointment.
