THE SPAR­TAN DEATH RACE

Clue: it’s got the word ‘death’ in the ti­tle. With ob­sta­cles in­clud­ing, but not lim­ited to, run­ning with a rock-filled bucket, crawl­ing un­der barbed wire and hoist­ing your­self along a rope. And at the fin­ish line? You get to leap over a wall of flames. ‘Feel­ing the burn’ in­deed.

RED BULL NEP­TUNE STEPS

Swim­ming against the tide for 420 me­tres wasn’t enough for the peo­ple at Red Bull, whose course also in­volves climb­ing 18 me­tres over seven canal lock gates. Oh, and it’s in Glas­gow. So that water’s go­ing to be f*ck­ing freez­ing. Think we’ll stick to the slow lane at our lo­cal lido.

DRAGON’S BACK RACE

A mis­lead­ing ti­tle, as there’s no one to help you along with these five days of cas­tle-to-cas­tle run­ning across the Welsh wilder­ness (sadly no dragons, ei­ther). Run­ners cover 186 miles, and climb 51,000 feet. Fast? It’ll take eight hours. Slow? It’ll be more like 18. Blis­ter cen­tral.
