I've only listed obstacle races in and around London based on your comments and have made sure there are options in both May and June. If none of these work then there are still plenty of other options to explore. Perhaps a good opportunity to put your strongman efforts to the test? (Click on the events at the bottom of the screen for more info and video footage.
