Route information
Participants will be placed on a bus, blindfolded and driven to a random location at the discretion of the driver. You will be told the number of miles (as the crow flies) from the race HQ. Racers will be dropped at 2 minute intervals from each other and will have to race back to the HQ.
There is no route - so prepare as best you can, bring shoes that will hold up on any terrain and get ready to cross rivers, canals, moors and marshes on your race back home. You are completely self-sufficient, you should not need anything but your brains and body to bring you back to HQ.
The Rules of the Race:

Did the race in 2019
Was a great laugh unfortunately was all road running and from the description I was expecting things to be a bit more rural so as advised were my trail runners which I really wish I hadn't as we did 0 trail running but other than that was a great event
Did the race in 2019
Really enjoyed "The Drop", Team OA put on a great low-frills event, just how I like it! Definitely recommend checking out this race, or some of their other events in future.
