About
This challenging event takes a different approach to running by blind-folding you and dropping you in an unknown location. Runners have to race their way back to HQ with no phone, no money and no help. Come out for a new approach to racing events and find out what you're made of.

Route information
There is no suggested route, no assistance and no way to know whether you will make it back to HQ. This event is designed to test people's natural navigation skills and their athleticism. It's a great way to separate yourself from your phone and the comforts of modern day society.
With 10 mile and 15 mile options this course can be as challenging as you want it to be, but bear in mind thats 10 or 15 miles as the crow flies. If you get lost then it could take you 20 or 25 miles back to HQ, so stay focused. Participants are blind-folded and dropped off every 2 minutes, unless part of a team in which case they will be dropped off together.
Rules:
- No phones
- No money
- No outside assistance
- No compass/map
