Darnley Challenge

Run 13.1mi

Tickets £39.95

This challenge is something of a change for an SVN event in that the loop is 13.1 miles or so and will pass through Jeskyns Woodland, the Darnley Estate and Ranscombe Wildflower Reserve. It will require a little bit of navigation and will be a bit more LDWA instruction/map reading than normal totally obvious/marked routes. However the route is largely out and back and its pretty straightforward and we'll have a long time limit as there are three pubs and an ice cream shop on the route in case you need to "pop in for directions"...

Darnley Challenge route

This is something of a divergence from our normal "short loop" routes to a longer 13.1 mile loop, that is mainly an out and back with a shortened lap around the Ranscombe Farm Reserve at the end. We'll have available four methods of navigation as the course won't be marked.
We'll have an aid station about half way around the loop at Ranscombe and possibly a second water stop if its especially hot, though there are three pubs on the route and at least one shop and we have a long time limit! The route has about 1500' of climb per lap, but for those who've done the Ranscombe Challenge it's much flatter than that route! This event will have a eight hour time limit.
