This event takes a different approach to racing. By blind-folding participants and stripping them of their phones and wallets then releasing them in an unknown part of the countryside only to race their way back to HQ before their competitors. Come for the adventure and a new take on running.

The Drop Manchester - October routes

There is no course, no guidelines nor suggestions on how to get back to HQ. Be prepared for river crossings, stream-jumping, wading through marshlands and running on moors - or stick to the roads and try to navigate that way. The idea of this event is to throw yourself into an unfamiliar position and find your way out without any assistance - just your brains and your body.

Participants can choose either the 10 mile or the 15 mile route options, but bear in mind those distances are 'as the crow flies' so if you get lost on the way back you could be running more like 20 miles.

The Rules:

1. No phone

2. No wallet

3. No GPS

4. No outside help
