Monster Race 5k

United Kingdom

This is the best obstacle course and mud run event venue in the Oxford area. We will return to Cornbury Park for the fifth time on April 28th 2018. Cornbury Park ( is a stunning country estate near Charlbury in the heart of Oxfordshire. The elegant 17th century house is surrounded by ancient forest, lakes, farmland and a deer park. The park is home to Lord and Lady Rotherwick who have kindly granted Monster Race permission to host an event in their grounds.

If you’ve run with us at Cornbury before you know what a corker of a venue this is. Featuring lots and lots (and we mean lots!) of woodland, undulating open spaces and water. Add into the mix the Monster’s obstacles (see the obstacle page for details) and you have one of the best obstacle course and mud runs you will come across.

Heat information: 

Runners start in waves every 30 minutes. The first wave is normally at 10am. Note the earlier waves fill up fast and once full are closed to further entries. So if you want to run early sign up asap!

This is so we don’t end up with bottlenecks at the obstacles. There’s nothing worse than starting an event and then at the first obstacle having to wait in line to tackle it. Having waves of people start the course every 30 minutes will avoid this. The event uses chip timing so your time will only commence once you’ve crossed the start line.

We will do our best to allocate participants to the waive time they indicated they would prefer at the time of registration. This may not always be possible and we may need to move participants to another wave to ensure overcrowding on the course/at obstacles does not take place.

Aid Stations: 

For the 10k Monster there will be at least one water station. For the 5k course there will not be a station (water will be available at the end).

Free stuff: 
  • A tough challenge you will never forget
  • Free mud
  • A quality Monster medal….the best on the scene? We think so.
  • Chip timing – with instant results
  • Free event photo’s  – subject to our photographers zapping you as you go round
  • Free spectator entry – the more the merrier…..bring your granny along
  • A cool drink at the end



Car parking will be available at the venue. There will be a charge of £5 per car. We do encourage you to car share where possible.
