Route information
Grab your blind-fold and jump on the bus. This military style navigation race removes you from your modern day comforts and throws you in the deep end. With no phone, no money and no map, participants must find their way back to HQ with nothing but their own two legs.
Bring your best all-terrain shoes and be prepared to do whatever it takes to get home whether thats crossing rivers, jumping over Ha-Ha's or wading through marshlands. The 10M and 15M route options give participants the option to select whatever level they are comfortable with.
