HELL & BACK, is Ireland's Toughest Physical & Mental Endurance Challenge, specifically designed and created by our award-winning outdoor specialists to push your physical and mental boundaries to the limit. Set in the magnificent Killruddery Estate, there are three options available this Sept (7KM, 10KM & 15KM) with stunning views of Dublin Bay from the Little Sugar Loaf mountain. The course combines lots of man-made obstacles with Killruddery's famous natural terrain, including rivers, mountains, bogs and forests, to create a uniquely terrifying challenge!

Course Distance: 7KM, 10KM & 15KM

HELL & BACK 15KM/10KM/7KM is a gruelling off-road course along man-made trail runs and mountain paths. You'll have to progress over, under, around and through all of Killruddery's stunning natural obstacles, including bogs, hills, forests, swamps, rivers, as well as our infamous HELL & BACK obstacles, including the Londis Water Jump & new Splashdown, Breyer's Ice Bath & new Devil's Creek, 2fm Walls, Jeep's Hell on Earth, Tipp Water Half Pipe and the Repak ELT Tyre Zone.
