SEE YOU IN 2023!

Scotland’s only beach based OCR course.

Beach ballistic is an OCR event set in the vast grounds of Balmedie Country Park in Aberdeenshire and is Scotland’s only beach based OCR course.

The stunning beach, and unique dune system along the Aberdeenshire coast, is the location for our gruelling 16K and 8K OCR courses.

Obstacles are set in the unique and challenging coastal landscape, including a dip in the north sea - this will be a true test of strength, stamina and mental toughness.

All competitors receive a Beach Ballistic goody bag for taking part, with competitors who complete the arduous course receiving one of our unique Beach Ballistic medals.

The Beach Ballistic event is a great day out for the family, with Balmedie Country Park offering an excellent park for kids along with ample parking and toilets next to the beach pavilion.

So what's stopping you? Isn't it time YOU went Ballistic!
