GLACK ATTACK REGISTRATION

Glack Attack will start at 13.00 on the 5th October 2019. Participants will start in waves, which go out at 15 minute intervals. When registering online, participants must select their preferred time slot - confirmation of allocated wave times will be emailed in the run up to the event.

For those who wish to win Glack Attack, whether as an individual or a team, you must select the first wave option (junior participants and their chaperones cannot enter wave 1). For everyone else who is just up for a challenge, wants to have fun and survive(!) then all times slots will be suitable.

Please remember that Junior participants must have an 18+ year old guardian who is a registered participant in the event. They must stick together throughout the run. There can be two Junior participants per one guardian.

On the day of the event, registration opens at 11.30am. We recommend registering 1 hour prior to your allotted wave time and no later than 15 minutes prior to the start time. Please remember to allow at least 15 minutes to walk from the car park to the registration area.

 

To register, you must take photographic ID (e.g. driving licence, passport) with you.

You must also sign a disclaimer form on the day of the event and hand it over with your photo ID before you can receive your race pack. Junior participants have a separate form which must be completed and submitted by the participating guardian.

Please see the Registration page for full details on registration.

MINI-RUN REGISTRATION

Registration for the Mini-Run is in five 1 hour slots. When registering, please select your time slot. Participants can start at any time during the hour slot but must finish within the hour slot. All mini-run participants will receive a medal.

 

Please remember that participants must be accompanied by a guardian at all times. The guardian must be 18 years or older and have the legal guardian’s consent. The guardian is required to complete a short form before starting the run.

The Mini-Run is PRE-REGISTRATION only. Please see the Registration page for full details on registration.

SPECTATORS

Spectators are more than welcome, just please note that you enter the hill at your own risk and under no circumstances should you attempt any of the obstacles. Persons under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Due to limited car parking space, we encourage spectators to come in the same car as people participating in the event.

By attending the site of the Event, whether you are participating or not, you are deemed to be accepting the Event’s terms and conditions.

 
 
 
 
 

HOW TO GET TO GLACK HILL

Coming from Aberdeen, take the A944 out of the city. After about 12 miles you will reach Dunecht. Take the first right on to Gauchhill Road/B977. After just a few hundred meters turn left. You will see the hill up ahead to the right. Continue along the road for roughly a mile and a half and you will see the signs for the car park entrance. The turning is just past a rise in the road, and cars tend to speed along there, so please be careful when turning. The hill can also be easily got to from the Kemnay and Kintore roads.

 

Parking

Parking will be in an adjacent field. It will be clearly signed from the main road. Please allow at least 15 minutes to get from the car park to the registration area.

FAQs

Is it a team or individual event?

You can enter the run as either an individual or as a team of 5 runners. There is a prize for the first female and male individual and the first team across the line.

 

How do I register?

Please go to our registration page. It is important to read the guidance notes before clicking on the link to Eventbrite. When on the Eventbrite website, please select the number and type of tickets required and then follow the instructions to register.

 

Are you still doing Glack Attack Halloween?

Unfortunately, we have taken the decision to stop Glack Attack Halloween. We loved organising it but a nighttime event with theatrical elements meant it was too expensive to run. Instead, we are focusing all our efforts on a family focused Glack Attack!

 

How can I amend my registration details?

Once registered, you can login to Eventbrite and edit your entry up to 14 days before the event. Please ensure all details are complete and correct before this date. Any changes after this date will be at the discretion of the organiser and any incomplete entries maybe removed without refund.

 

I have registered and not received any emails...

Once registered, you should receive an email from Eventbrite confirming your place. You will receive an email nearer the event confirming your wave time. There may also be some other info emails in between. If you don’t receive any emails, please check that your email address is correct on Eventbrite and that our emails aren’t hiding in your spam folder. Failing that, please let us know and we’ll work out what has gone wrong.

 

Is there somewhere to leave my bag?

Yes. As the car parking area is a 15-minute walk from the registration area, you might want to take a bag with your kit in it. In your race pack you will find your bag tag – it will be numbered to match your race number. Please attach it to your bag before putting it in the bag drop area. To improve security of the bag drop, this year the bag drop will have a manned desk - the service will be provided in return for a voluntary donation to our charity partner Friends of Anchor.

 

Is fancy dress allowed?

Yes! However, you must make sure any costumes worn are sensible and will not get in the way of you safely completing the run. For example, capes and loose clothing are not recommended.

 

How difficult are the obstacles?

In comparison to other obstacle mud runs, Glack Attack is challenging but not extreme. We do not try and electrocute you or make you jump off 30ft platforms! Whilst significant effort will be required, most of our obstacles are achievable. If for any reason you do not wish to attempt an obstacle, you can simply miss it out and move onto the next (so as long you’re not competing to win!).

Junior participants (8 - 15 years of age) are not allowed to complete four specific obstacles which are deemed high risk for young runners. Instead, they will have lower risk obstacle options.

 

What is involved in the Glack Attack Mini Run?

The mini run is about 150m long containing a number of safe but fun obstacles designed to be achievable for children aged 3 – 7 years of age. Registration for the Mini-Run is in five 1 hour slots. When registering, please select your time slot. Participants can start at any time during the hour slot but must finish within the hour slot. Participants can go round the course more than once.

 

Please remember that participants must be accompanied by a guardian at all times. The guardian must be 18 years or older and have the legal guardian’s consent. The guardian is required to complete a short form before starting the run.

 

What does the Glack Attack entry fee include?

The entry fee includes entry into the run, a tech t-shirt, a quality medal, and a bottle of water and a chocolate bar at the finish line. The mini run participants will receive a children’s medal only (no t-shirt, chocolate bar or water).

 

What is the entry free spent on?

A lot goes into organising an obstacle mud run - ensuring you receive a high quality experience with safety as a top priority. Here are just some of the things the entry fee covers: medical support, event insurance, event staff, risk assessment, construction of obstacles and course, water station, t-shirts, medals, refuse management, car park area, licensing, signage, marquee hire, sound system hire, toilet hire and post event clean up.

 

Are the runs timed?

No. The event is not timed so timing chips will not be provided.

 

How long do I need to be there before it starts?

We recommend registering 1 hour prior to your allotted wave time and no later than 15 minutes prior to the start time. Please remember to allow at least 15 minutes to walk from the car park to the registration area.

 

Where do I park?

Parking will be provided in a field beside the hill. It will be clearly sign posted on the day. While the parking is complementary to entrants, the car park is marshalled by a charity and so donations would be much appreciated. Due to limited car parking space, we encourage spectators to come in the same car as entrants.

Spectators: Can I bring anyone to watch?

Spectators are more than welcome, just please note that they enter the hill at their own risk and under no circumstances should they attempt any of the obstacles. Persons under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. By attending the site of the run, whether participating or not, they are deemed to be accepting the run’s terms and conditions.

Due to limited car parking space, we encourage spectators to come in the same car as entrants.

 

Will there be toilets?

Yes there will be toilets on site.

 

How long is the race?

The race is just over 5km. However, with hills, mud and obstacles, it will feel a lot longer!

 

How long will it take?

For the majority of runners it will take around one hour but for those competing to win, the course could be completed in half the time.

 

What do I need to wear?

Warm running gear is advisable! The run will involve running through bogs and mud so your footwear and clothing will get very wet, so please choose footwear and clothing that you don’t mind potentially ruining! The course will be slippy so shoes and gloves with grip could be useful – however, please don’t use running spikes, football boots or similar as they could injure other runners. Warm clothing to wear before and after the race is also recommended.

 

Will I need to sign a disclaimer form?

Yes. On arrival each participant will have to register to receive their race number. This will involve signing a disclaimer form. No-one can take part without signing the disclaimer form. This is to ensure that each participant has read the terms and conditions and is aware of the risks involved in taking part in the run.

 

What are the prizes?

Every runner who completes the 5km course will receive a Glack Attack survivor’s t-shirt and a medal. The first man, lady and team over the finish line will receive a winners prize.

 

What level of fitness is required to take part?

There is no time limit to the run so if required, you can walk between obstacles. Nevertheless, as the terms and conditions state, you must meet the age requirements and be in a fit state to participate in the run.

 

Where is Glack Hill?

Glack Hill is in between Dunecht and Kemnay, Aberdeenshire. It is 30 minutes outside of Aberdeen city centre. Please see our venue page for details of how to get there.

 

Will food and drink be available?

Each runner will receive a bottle of water and a chocolate bar after completing the run. Vendors will also be present selling hot and cold drinks and snacks.
