We have been looking for a complete calendar of the best fitness events, races and competitions that are on during 2024 - we couldn't find one. So we have created you one.
We have compiled a list of all the events that are worth noting down and if you are feeling up to the challenge.
The Hyrox event is one of our favourites and has become one of our main focuses for our training efforts. The event is 8k worth of running in 1k segments which are broken up by various workouts including, 1k Ski Erg, 50m Sled Push, 50m Sled Pull, 80m Burpee Broad jumps, 1k Row, 200m Farmers Carry, 100m Lunges, 100 Wall Balls. The workout remains the same year in year out for this event.
It is a true test of overall fitness with a specific focus on compromised running. These events sell out very very fast but the atmosphere at them is electric and well worth giving a go. Here are the dates released for the UK events.
Hyrox Glasgow - 2nd March (Sold Out)
Hyrox London - 4th-6th May (Sold Out)
Hyrox Birmingham - 26th / 27th October (Sold Out)

They are also due to release Dublin, Amsterdam and Paris over the coming months which are usually just after the Brimingham event.
The Athx Games is a fairly new fitness competition that encompasses 3 parts. Strength segment, endurance segment and a Metcon workout. This is split into 3 segments with a rest station in between. The workouts are programmed by Marchon and test overall strength with their previous year being a 1RM Shoulder to Overhead, 10RM Squat followed by a endurance segment with 5k running, whilst your partner does a 1K Ski Erg, 2k Row and a 5k Cycle (You can also switch at any point). This year the strength section compromises of Deadlift - 5 Reps and Shoulder to Overhead - 3 reps. The final segment is a Metcon workout consisting of Dumbbell Thrusters, Box Jumps, Sandbag Carries, Sandbag Squats, Burpee Broadjumps and Burpees.
The format for 2024 will remain the same however the workouts and movements may slightly change.
The events and dates are listed below:

The turf games began in 2017 as a series of casual workouts at different gyms and studios across London. Turf Games grew from here being one of the most inclusive competitive functional fitness events; filling the void between more 'highly skilled' events already in existence and one dimensional events such as runs.
The games are done in teams - either same sex or multi sex teams. The workouts do vary however you can expect to find exercises such as deadlifts, Dumbbell carries, Shoulder to Overheads, run, cycle, ski erg, air bike, cleans, wall balls, burpees, rope climbs, box jumps, pull ups, toes to bar, sled push and more.
There is always a great atmosphere at the events and are certainly ones to add into the mix.
Turf Games Farnborough - 17th Feb
Turf Games London -15th June
Turf Games Glasgow - 31st August
Launched in 2013 the Superhuman Games is now recognised as the UK's ultimate outdoor functional fitness and endurance event.
Participants take part in 5 workouts throughout the day, with each workout requiring you to complete as many laps as possible of a specific task within a 20 minute time cap. The workouts are uniquely designed to be completely open to all abilities, allowing first time competitors to take part in the event alongside seasoned superhuman games athletes!
The 5 segments are broken down into the following;
An all out lung buster, usually involving running, rowing or rucking.
A multiple carry workout using unconventional objects such as logs, kegs, sandbags and more!
The Assault Course
Simple: smash out as many laps as possible of our 800m military style assault course.
Strength & Honour
This workout usually involves a bit of heavy lifting, Superhuman-style! So expect movements like Tyre Flips, Tyre Pulls, Tyre Drags and Heavy Sandbag work!
Brutal Beat Down
A workout that is always fast and furious, using bodyweight and full body movements to test your mobility as well as functional endurance.
Superhuman Games Bristol - 29th June
Triathlons are where this brand was formed from. We love the challenge that a triathlon brings. It is the ultimate test of endurance with swimming, cycling and running.
There are a number of triathlons in the UK with a range of racing distance including super sprint, sprint, olympic, half ironman and ironman distance. Dependant on your training and how much you enjoy long runs, swims and cycles we recomend giving at least an Olynmpic triathlon distance a go which is usually 1500m Swimming, 40k Cycle and a 10k run.
Here are a few good and tough triathlons coming up in 2024.
- Royal Windsor Triathlon - 9th June
- Slateman Triathlon - 9th June
- Helvellyn Triathlon - September 1st
- Superfeet Sandman Triathlon - 14th September
