Ultm8 Warrior (Vigo) 2018

The Ultm8 Warrior children's obstacle challenge series is a favourite of my daughter's and 2018 marked the third consecutive year she had taken part in this event / location. We had entered online via the Eventbrite app for a fee of £10, and just like the year before, she had decided to go for the 2 lap option.

The course was laid out a pretty much the same design as it was for the 2017 event. This featured four out and backs which lead the children away and back to the main obstacle area just in front of the rugby clubhouse. This works very well as it helps to spread the kids out and gives the parents an up close view of their kids doing the obstacles.

We did of course slap on a bit of the warrior face paint before getting started, which the organisers have available at the main HQ gazebo. 

The obstacles themselves were all the same as previous years with the addition of one new challenge which involved a rope climb over an inflatable obstacle - this was without doubt the most challenging of the obstacles, but no too hard to make it impossible.

The rest was business as usual which included a rope-net crawl, ups-and-overs, a spider's web net, a long crawl through a tunnel, the big rope climb, a slip and slide, and the sponge throw - this is where I got to throw wet sponges at her while she hid behind a warrior shield!

With the two laps complete, she collected her green Year of the Viking themed medal and told me tales of her journey around the mighty course of obstacles. We'd had a great morning out and the time had now come to hit the road back home.
