What a scorcher at today's South Coast Roll open track day in Chichester! Given the intensity of the heat I opted to cover my marathon distance this time with two/three lap intervals. (11.5 laps for a marathon). This had a plus of making it a much more sociable outing on pit breaks this year at the Goodwood race track.
On the video below, at 1:05 if you blink you'll miss me!
The overall setup for Urban Ninja remains the same since our first visit in 2015. Although the crash mats and air bags had a welcome improvement!
Last time the giant cotton wheel wasn't up and running so I was excited to give this a shot. In this video it whipped me off right at the end, but it was after the blue crash pads so I guess thats a successful attempt?!
We all managed to complete an obstacle we failed previously so definitely feel accomplished today! For me it was jumping off a trampette and pushing your arms and legs out to suspend yourself between a set of parallel walls, before shimmying along the corridor. AKA the spider walk!
The final timed event uses the same course as before so you can compare yourself to previous years which it is impossible to do so on other OCR events. Another thing is that you have to complete all obstacles within the three minutes in order to win the medal, which again is not done at other events.
We like what Urban Ninja are doing. Although it would be great to see some new obstacles too!
