HELL & BACK, Ireland’s Toughest Mental & Physical Endurance Challenge, is the country’s largest and most popular obstacle course adventure run, which takes place a number of times each year in the stunning Killruddery Estate.
Killruddery is a spectacular working farm, which is converted into an adventure playground, where to survive, you must conquer all the elements thrown at you. Participants must cross rivers and lakes, climb hills and mountains and crawl through bogs and swamps, as well as overcome the infamous man-made obstacles, including the Water Jump, 10 Foot Wall, Ice Baths, Hell on Earth and Hell Slide.
The result is a unique Irish outdoor experience that appeals to everyone from home or abroad with a sense of adventure and a basic level of fitness. The original HELL & BACK is for adults over 18s (over 16s are permitted with signed Parental/Guardian Consent), while HELL & BACK Junior is for primary school kids aged 5-12 and the unique new HELL & BACK Family event is for Mum, Dad and all children over 10.
