ROCKSOLID RACE Ceases Trading With Immediate Effect


ROCKSOLID race, a popular race in the UK, has gone out of business effective immediately and will not be able to offer refunds for people who have signed up for either of their 2017 events.

We are currently struggling to meet our projected sales for our biggest event, Exeter, which normally allows us enough profit to subsidise marketing our Milton Keynes event in October. This is on top of a poor 2016 season – in fact, sales have been in decline since 2015 – which ties in with the Obstacle Racing / Mud Run market in general.

In our view, Obstacle Racing has become a very saturated market and unfortunately we couldn’t make the sales required to sustain the company. If we were to go ahead with the 2017 events, we would not be able to hold events to the quality or standard to which we are known for.
