As part of our 2022 London Summer Festival, we are excited to announce the return of our latest concept and fitness race, the ...
We debuted Engine at our 2021 London Fittest in the City and then also again in Dubai. The concept is an endurance comp featuring all the machines we love - ski, row, bike + short runs and burpee broad jumps - testing your ENGINE! The workout will be between 35 and 50 minutes long - depending on your fitness level! You can sign up as a pair or individual.
HOW FAST CAN YOU GO?

Engine will run both Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July at our London Summer Festival at Ealing Trailfinders, W13 London.
This event is perfect for everyone - no matter what your fitness background, OCR, running, functional fitness - low skill... just pure Engine! We want as many people as possible to be able to enjoy, compete and be part of the Turf Games community.
Across the weekend we will have the following age categories -
- 16 - 34 years
- 35 - 44 years
All athletes in the above Individuals categories will compete in the same workout, however, athletes will be positioned on their relevant age based leaderboard.
The below age categories is an average age - you would add each athletes age together and divide by 2 to give your pair's age bracket (i.e. 48 y/o + 42 y/o = 45+ category)
- 16-34 years
- 35-39 years
- 40 - 44 years
- 45 +
All athletes in the above Pairs categories will compete in the same workout, however, athletes will be positioned on their relevant age based leaderboard.
The following categories will compete on Saturday
- Male Pairs - all ages
- Female Pairs - all ages
The following categories will compete on Sunday
- Mixed Pairs - all ages
- Male + female Individuals - all ages
Individual - £50
Pairs - £80
An example of an individual and pairs workouts are below. Pairs will have one machine on each station and swap in and out as they wish, both pairs will run and perform the burpee broad jumps. The individual event will follow a similar format but with slightly shorter distances.
This event is about pacing - you come out of the gates too 'hot' and you will soon be in the hurt locker quite soon. You have plenty of time to train leading into the event - find a pace that you can hold comfortably for a distance and stick to your plan.
ARE YOU IN?
I'm doing the team event on one of the days, but I also want to do ENGINE - is that possible?
Yes, you can certainly sign up and take part in ENGINE on the day your team isn't competing. What's not to love about a full weekend of fitness! You can not do ENGINE and the team of 5 comp in the same day.
Will there be prizes?
Yes, the winning person/pair from each category will win some small partner prizes and ENGINE bragging rights.
How does the age category work?
On the day you compete, your age needs to meet the category. i.e. if you want to compete in the 45+ age category, if you don't turn 44 till the day after you compete, you need to compete in the preceding age category.
