St Peter's Hospice

Run for an amazing cause

We're very excited to have St Peter's Hospice as our official charity partner for X Race: Blaise Castle 2024.

St Peter's Hospice is a local charity that provides care and support to adults who are living with a progressive life-limiting illness in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset area. Support is focused around the physical, psychological, social and spiritual issues that can arise as a result of serious illness, in order to improve the quality of a person's life. You can find out more about St Peter's Hospice here.

How it works?

  2. If you sign up using the code, you are agreeing to pledge the following amount depending on the race distance you've selected (For the Sprint: £40, for the Endurance: £80 and for the Ultra: £160).
  3. By using this code, you are also agreeing to let us share your contact information with St Peter's Hospice so they can contact you directly in order to set up a JustGiving Page.

X Race is a unique experience in just how trainable we make it. We pre-release the route, challenges and weights month in advance so you know what to expect on the day.

We always choose low-skill yet challenging movements, and ensure they are all trainable in pretty much all gym environments - no fancy equipment needed.

Put simply X Race: Blaise Castle is an event that anyone can enter, accessible and trainable by anyone willing to work hard!

It's highly trainable

To help you prepare you can find a free 8-week training plan here that was put together for last year's X Race: Blaise Castle.

We also have a Superhuman Affiliate Programme, where you can find a fitness facilty that provides our event styles of training. But remember, we always pick movements trainable in pretty much any gym!

It's never too late to start. Choose your race, set your goals, and start your journey today. You'll thank us at the finish line (maybe).
