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, is the location for our gruelling 16K and 6K OCR courses and the extreme 32k monster that is the ULTRA BEACH. 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 will receive a Beach Ballistic t-shirt, medal and goody bag for taking part as well as a food voucher to use at the venue.

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 time YOU went Ballistic!
