Event summary
Here are the distances available for The Drop - York
30 Mile
Route information
What course? There is no single, plotted route for participants to make their way home. Thats the beauty of this event. Participants are blind-folded and dropped off at 2-minute intervals through the countryside.
There are 3 race distances (10M, 15M and 30M) but be warned these are measured "as the crow flies", in other words 15 miles in a straight line back to HQ could end up being 20 miles if you get lost.
There aren't many rules, but they are important:
1. No phones
2. No maps
3. No money
4. No GPS or navigation assistance
Participants will be given a sealed emergency bag to use in case they are genuinely in trouble. This will contain a phone, money and GPS. However, if the seal is broken when you return back to HQ you will be disqualified.
What's included
  • Race entry
  • Transport to the starting location
  • Blind-fold
  • Prizes for top performers (M/F)

Spectator Info
Spectators are welcome to join at the end of the event, but the point of this race is to get participants outside of their comfort zone and out of reach. There are no phones allowed so it will be difficult (impossible) to coordinate with racers.
Will there be any support on The Drop, York?
No, thats the point. There is no support after you have been dropped at the starting location.
Will there be race results of The Drop, York, and how do I find them?
Yes, if you finish the race then your results will be published online within 2 hours of the race ending.
Will I be dropped off with anyone else at The Drop, York?
Only your teammates if you have signed up to be in a team. Otherwise participants are dropped at 2 minute intervals to each other and must find their way back by themselves.
What are the rules of The Drop, York?
No phones, no money and no assistance. You are given emergency items in a sealed bag in case you really need them, but you will be disqualified if the seal is broken.
