Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
If you're looking for a new fitness challenge, consider obstacle course races—an increasingly popular way to spend a day. The events tend to involve slogging through mud, climbing things, crawling under other things and generally making a run way more difficult—but hopefully rewarding—than it needs to be. But give it some careful thought before you sign up, the races can range from fun days out to gruelling exercises in having your ass handed to you. We've broken down three upcoming options in October so you know what to expect, and recommended fitness classes to help you prepare, or you could try these boot camps and CrossFit gyms.
