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
  • Race entry
  • Transport to the start
  • Blind-fold or black-out goggles
  • Prizes for top performers (M/F)
