www.hellandback.ie

HELL & BACK is specifically designed and created by outdoor specialists to test your physical and mental boundaries to THE limit! These are not multi-sports events – they are running events through, over and under various different types of terrain, including the Little Sugar Loaf Mountain, The Pond, The River, Satan's Pit and The Swamp.

And if that wasn't enough, you must also scale 7 foot walls, crawl under barbed wire and run through Shock of Horrors where you will get a nice little electric shock!
