The UK’s original charity obstacle course race

Mission:Unbreakable is a commando course filled with tough challenges and obstacles. Scale heights, take a leap of faith, and tackle mud, fire, water and ice to call yourself an 'Unbreakable.'

Mission:Unbreakable redefines the traditional 'mud run' obstacle course because our course has been designed with 2 4 Commando Royal Engineer Regiment based at RMB Chivenor, who will also be there on the day, providing plenty of encouragement.

Thanks to the fantastic North Molton Sports Centre and local landowners, Mission: Unbreakable takes place on a specially designed 10km course through fields, rivers and forests. The terrain is rugged with plenty of hills and mud to make it even tougher. 


Raising Money>

Mission: Unbreakable is a sponsored event, where the vital funds you raise directly support local people who are being cared for by North Devon Hospice.

By signing up you commit to raising at least £50, which is the average cost of support for a family from a specialist hospice nurse for the afternoon. Your fundraising will help a patient stay in the comfort of their own home during their final days.

There are two easy ways to raise vital funds:

1) Raise at least £50 sponsorship from family and friends. Set up a Just Giving page and share the link with everyone you know on social media, email, and WhatsApp and add a link to your bios and stories. Download a paper sponsor form here.

2) Make a £50 donation at checkout, along with your £35 registration meaning you don't have to raise any sponsorship (but you still can if you want to!)

By signing up for Mission:Unbreakable, you're taking part in an obstacle course race that's cheaper than a Tough Mudder (£110!) and you're supporting local people at the end of their lives, that's pretty awesome.


Team work
This is not a race. It's about helping each other and completing the course together, as a team. Get your team together and make sure that everyone in your team signs up to the same platoon so that you are given the same start time.

None of the obstacles are compulsory, but as this is a day to push your limits, we're sure you'll want to have a really good crack at everything put in front of you. It's such an amazing experience that you will want some great photos of the day. You will be able to buy your favourite photos from photo-fit event photography after the event.


Your Motivation

We have never needed you more than we do now. We need every single Mission:Unbreakable recruit to raise as much as possible. Your sponsorship or donation will provide hospice care for local people. Upon registering, you'll choose whether you'd prefer to raise sponsorship for your participation, or make a donation instead.

If you choose to raise sponsorship, we'll send you all the help you need, including a hints and tips sheet as well as links to set up your own online fundraising page (which makes it super easy).

If you'd rather make a donation, we require a minimum donation of £50 which is the average cost for our Community Nurses to visit a patient when they need our help. Your donation will allow them to support patients in their own homes right across North Devon.


Get your Mission: Unbreakable technical T-shirt for £12.00 when you register. T-shirt sales will not be available on the day, they are only available to purchase when completing your registration. This is the must-have memento, and proof that you have tackled one of the toughest challenges out there! 


Mission Unbreakable Obstacles

Check out some of the obstacles awaiting you. This isn't the full list (and some obstacles may alter, depending on any safety guidance which is in place at the time), but it gives you a taster of what's in store! Don't forget, none of these will be compulsory, but we're sure you will want to push yourself and tackle everything put in your way...

Commando Warm Ups  COMMANDO WARM UP

Get the blood pumping and prepare your body for the immense task that lies ahead. The warm up will be led by Commandos from RMB Chivenor, who will put you through your paces!

Planks And Tyres  MINEFIELD HOP

A leg-draining minefield of tyres for you to hop through

 Riverrush  RIVER RUSH

This is a wade through waist-deep water. It'll be cold, it'll be slippery and you will be running up stream!

 Tunnerl Trouble  TUNNEL TROUBLE

Crawling through a low tunnel, against the tide of a river coming in the other direction!


The autumn rain (plus a farmer's tractor!) will have made this stretch of bog especially thick and muddy. Your job is to crawl through it, underneath the barbed wire of course!

 Stakes And Beam  UNDER & OVER

Simple. Haul your body over the high logs, then drop and roll under the low ones.

 Monkey Climb  HANG TOUGH

When your hands are cold and your arms are sore, you'll be asked to engage your upper body strength and shimmy across our monkey bars. Watch out for the muddy landing below!

  Fire Run  INFERNO

Just in case you get too cold, we thought you might like to run through some fire to warm up! Aren't we nice!

 Water Slide  ASSAULT SLIDE 

A 40m plunge down a steep field will wake you up if you're feeling lethargic!

 Marsh Mudder  MARSH MUDDER

A trek through the knee-deep marsh land. A true energy-sapper when you least need it. Whatever you do, don't lose your shoe!

 Log Loader  LOG LOADER

Like Atlas, you must carry the weight of the world (or at least a huge log) on your shoulders. Carry it the required distance before you can continue, you might want teammates to help you!

 Sheep Dip  SHEEP DIP

Face your fear and pass through our underwater tunnel. Take a deep breath and trust the Commandos to pull you through the other side.

 Hillside Heartbreaker  EARN YOUR STRIPES

A true test of mettle. Scramble to the top of a steep 100-metre slope where a Commando will be waiting to give you one stripe of face paint. Repeat three times to earn your full three stripes and continue the course.

 Commando Jump  COMMANDO JUMP

A true leap of faith. Like your parachuting military guides for the day, you'll need to jump from our platform, aiming for the safety of the crash mat below. Listen as they teach you to drop and roll to absorb the impact.

 Netting Nasty  RANGER CLIMB

With every rung of this wall of netting, you will feel like you are taking one step forward and one step back. Don't lose your footing and remember to keep using your leg muscles.

 Ring The Bell  RING THE BELL

Ringing a bell is easy. It just so happens that our bell is located at the top of a rope that you will have to climb.


They say that an ice bath helps muscle recovery. So the final challenge will be to wade through chest-high water and ice. It's for your own benefit, believe us!
