No Human Race Off-Road Series for 2016/2017

It's been a staple fixture of the off-road duathlon and running scene for many years now, but today Human Race ( have announced the cancellation of their Off-Road Series of events, featuring the WildMan, IceMan and MudMan events, citing difficulties in obtaining the necessary permissions at the venues.

Entrants to the races have been emailed today, and the update (reproduced in full below), posted on the event website.

We are extremely disappointed that we have had to cancel the 2016/17 Off-Road Series.

Unfortunately, at this late stage, the final permissions for use of the Ministry of Defence land where the event takes place have been withdrawn and we are unable to host WildMan on 19th November. We have tried everything we can to change this decision, but have been unsuccessful with our efforts.

Permissions for use of the venues for both IceMan (3rd December) and MudMan (11th March) are also under scrutiny and we would only get confirmation a matter of days before each event. We’ve thought long and hard about this and don’t feel that this would be fair on our participants.

We are devastated to have to make this decision – it’s a series we love to organise and we ask for your understanding in a situation that is out of our control.
