Pukka Little Warriors – 3K
7 – 13 Year Olds

We are excited to announce that for the first time in Pukka history, children will be able to take part!

Here at Pukka Races we believe that children should have the opportunity to run, jump, climb and get muddy. We’re bringing it back to the basics, studies show that the younger generation are less fit today than their parents were when they were children. Pukka Races are dedicated to making healthy the new normal for the next generation through our children obstacle course races. Active youth benefit from better physical health, are at lower risk of developing depression and earn higher marks than their less-active peers.

In Association with Activ8

Activ8 Fitness Camp is a national award winning health, fitness and wellbeing company who support children and families to be the best they can be.

On the day, Activ8 Fitness Camp will be getting the children motivated to tackle the course through an energetic warm up and some tips how to breeze through the course.

Activ8 Fitness Camp will be on the course looking out for children who demonstrate outstanding leadership skills, courage, teamwork and sportsmanship. If they display these qualities they will receive a Pukka Races certificate through the post.
