The route

The most fun you can have in the bog

Take on the slippery Skid Mark 2, slide through the fearsome Rude Tubes, meet the Pasta Masta and take a Leap of Faith into the fjord! You’ll make your way through the course in small groups, taking on each obstacle one by one.

Our Turf Warrior route varies from year to year. See our gallery to get an idea of what you’re in for. But we won’t give away all our secrets, just to keep you on your toes on the day!

No pain, no gain

You don’t need any special skills, but you will need some upper body strength for some elements of the course. Obstacles have a no-swim option, but you will need to be comfortable wading in waist-deep water and bog.

You might get a few cuts, bruises and grazes along the way, but we know you’re up to the challenge! Read our top techniques for extreme obstacle courses for tips on how to slay on the day.

Get the gang together

Turf Warrior is where friendships are truly tested! Will you dig deep and help your friends & fellow competitors through the obstacles, or just watch them struggle? But the true ethos of Turf Warrior is to have fun and leave no one behind. You never know, you might need a hand yourself!

Get a group of family and friends together for the best craic in Connemara. There are discounts for groups of 10 or more so no excuses!

Get down & dirty!

Be warned, you & your clothing, will get extremely wet and dirty, so don’t wear your Sunday best! You might lose your shoes so tape them on tight. For your own sanity we really recommend you wear a wetsuit, but it’s up to you!

You can hose down at the finish line, but be warned, you’ll be finding bits of bog in places you never thought possible!
