Your New Years resolution was to lose weight, get healthy? You joined a gym and already losing motivation? Sounds familiar? The best way to over come the January hump and give your resolution a kick start is to set yourself a challenge and we’ve found just that.

Fitness fanatics and first-timers alike are set to flock to Upminster for a mud crawling, heart pounding and adrenaline-bursting obstacle course on Saturday 8th February.


Held in association with leading London fitness group Spartanfam, ‘Mud N Madness’ will see participants face ten tough obstacles across 7.5km for the annual challenge. The unique combination of obstacles will include archery, cargo ropes, river crossings and mud trails, with a separate event for under 17s too.


Spartanfam Founder, Chaka Clarke said: “Whether you’re an accomplished athlete or new to training, Mud N Madness is a great way to start the year feeling fit and healthy.


“It’s not too late to prepare either, they’ve launched a special training programme across all our classes designed to help anyone get race-ready in time – whether you’re new to fitness or an accomplished athlete. Spartanfam is all about working together to achieve great things regardless of your ability.”

Spartanfam runs classes in athletics, gymnastics, plyometrics and calisthenics techniques underpinned by nutrition education across London. Visit for more information.
