Ireland’s Toughest Physical and Mental Endurance Challenge for Children, HELL & BACK Junior/Teen is a fun and exhilarating obstacle course mud run for primary & secondary school kids seeking the ultimate adventure!

Designed by our award-winning obstacle team, there is a 1KM course for 5-7 year olds, a 3KM course for 8-12 year olds and an 8KM course for teenagers. Many of the obstacles have featured on RTE's Ireland's Fittest Family TV show.

HELL & BACK Junior is a fun obstacle course adventure run that offers your kids the opportunity to negotiate their way over, under and through a number of natural and man-made obstacles, before crossing the finishing line…very muddy but very happy!

What Your Kids Will Learn:

  • Discipline to finish what you start. 
  • Sometimes life can be hell…but you can overcome any obstacle with the right positive attitude! 
  • How to respond positively when you are in a situation outside your comfort zone. 
  • The unique sense of achievement you will experience when you conquer tough mental and physical challenges. 
  • All in a fun, controlled and safe environment!
  • Start Times

    Waves start every 15 minutes - you can choose your preferred start time when you register your child. 

    Limited space in each wave...the earlier you register, the more start time options you have available!

    E-Waiver Form

    IMPORTANT: We've recently digitised our registration process. At the Registration Tent, one adult must now agree to an electronic Terms & Conditions of Participation form for each child looking to take part. If you are not travelling, make sure you have an adult to sign it on your behalf. No child will be able to take part without an adult agreeing to the T&Cs. Once signed, each child will receive a numbered wristband, allowing them into the Starting Pen.
