“Completed my first hell and back on Saturday and although it was tough and I’ve ended up battered and bruised I loved every minute of it. Atmosphere was buzzing, was great to see people helping others they didn’t even know and everyone had a smile on their faces the whole way throughout. Absolutely worth all the sore muscles to get over that ten foot wall at the end and cross the finish line! Can’t wait to get my next one booked.”

- Special dedicated charity tent with bag drop that will be monitored throughout with the day.

“I have to say this really was one.of the best things by far I have done was really well organised the help and motivation from everyone is amazing I didn’t have much training behind me and my god was it tough but got through it all and would do it all again.”
We appreciate so much that corporate teams work at fundraising for us as part of their Hellraiser experience. We’ve been told that running for a good cause helped some of last year’s participants finish the 7km with a smile on their (muddy) face.
The companies who have run for us in the past (including Permanent TSB, DLR Leisure Centre and Central Bank) found it easiest to set-up an Everydayhero fundraising page where our charity is registered.
Your team can direct friends and family to the Hell and Back page on Everydayhero.com easily by sharing the link on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or via Whatsapp and email.
Other fundraising suggestions include an office raffle, casual Friday or race night. Emma would be delighted to guide and support you in this area.
“Took part in my first hell & back during the weekend & loved it. If there was 10 stars I’d give it. From the warm up at the start to all the goodies at the end, it was so well ran. The team spirit was just fantastic. Everyone helped each other & had great craic along the way. Cannot wait to do my next one.”

Arrive at Kilruddery Estate, Bray. Ample parking available for cars or minibuses. Enjoy use of DSC bag drop and get your food wristband (this part is very important!). Take ‘before’ team shots.
Go to assembly area and enjoy your warm up. Then you’re off to ‘enjoy’ 7km of Ireland’s toughest physical and mental challenges such as tyre swings, swamps, mud, rope swings and ice baths.
Well, first of all, give yourself a minute to enjoy a feeling of enormous achievement – you’re a Hellraiser! Take your Finish Line group shot, grab your ‘I made it thru Hell and Back!’ t-shirt and then grab yourself the tastiest burger and bottle of water you’ll ever have!
Grab a shower, put on your lovely warm clothes and then compare bruises and battle stories at our after party (venue to be confirmed) with hundreds of other incredible Hellraisers!
Over the last two years, our Hellraisers who made it through 7km of swamps, high ropes, ice baths, tire jumps and many other crazy challenges for our centre. Everyone said they’d love to do again! Check out their finish line photos below.
