IREland's toughest Physical & Mental challenge

HELL & BACK is Ireland's toughest physical and 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, our main hellish event of the year is the annual 13KM & 8KM summer fest on Saturday 8th June 2024.

 

The course, which offers stunning views of Dublin Bay from the Little Sugar Loaf mountain, combines man-made obstacles with Killruddery's natural terrain, including lakes, mountains, bogs and forests, to create a uniquely terrifying challenge!

 

Take on some of HELL & BACK's infamous obstacles, including Splashzone, Hell on Earth, Heartbreak Ridge, Valley of Pain and Satan's Pit, as seen on Ireland's Fittest Family TV Show!

 

Suitable for ages 16+, accompanied by an adult.
