Suffolk Whole Hog
The Suffolk Whole Hog obstacle and mud race takes place on the 18th October 2015 at Wantisden Hall, Nr Woodbridge. This exciting event is for individuals and teams 16 yrs and over who want to challenge themselves by going the ‘whole hog’.

The race will follow a seven mile course through the rolling countryside of the Wantisden Valley. Over 20 additional ‘challenges’ will be tackled by the competitors requiring a test of nerve and stamina. You will need to be prepared to get wet as the course runs through very boggy and muddy areas and includes a wide variety of tough obstacles.
