Challenge Adventure Event £40, £45 OTD
5 hours, using a 1:25k waterproof map (Run) and a 1:50k waterproof map (MTB), plan your route and navigate to as many checkpoints as possible within the time. Starting either on foot or bike, there will be one transition. Enter more than 2 weeks before and pay £35.
You plan your own strategy and route, deciding how many CPs you want to visit and in what order. You will lose 1 point for each 30s you are late coming back for the first 5 minutes, then 2 points every 30 s thereafter. Checkpoints are worth between 0 points and 35 points each. Distance covered depends on how many checkpoints are visited. Distance covered can be anything from 25km to around 50+km, and depends entirely on your level of fitness, as well as your running/MTB and map reading skills. Minimum age to take part is 16.
Registration opens at 8.30am to give competitors time to collect their maps and to plan their strategy and routes. We also offer a flexible start time for those who want to get off earlier than 10am. For these racers, registration opens at 7.30am, and they can set off at any time after 8.30am.
