MAD 5K Challenge

The MAD 5K Challenge is a run which takes place at Millbrook’s proving ground in the UK – across the Hill Route and the Off-Road course. Normally, this is where the toughest vehicles are tested!

The route includes our 7%, 14% and, finally, 21% incline. After that, the participants have to tackle two steep sand dunes and run through a wading pond towards the finish. The event is organised in support of Help for Heroes.

How to Join

The next event will be on Tuesday 15th September 2020!

It is set to be a record-breaker as we will be celebrating 50 years of Millbrook Proving Ground.
