Mini-Trail Adventure Event

The Mini Trail gives a taster to adventure events and is a great first experience of off-road navigation events. Families with young children (aged 8-16) can take part together, as the distances between the checkpoints are relatively short. You have the choice of navigating solo or in groups, and you have 1 hour to collect as many as possible of the 10 check points available.

Shere Adventure Race reviews (4)

4.8 out of 5 stars

  • Course
  • Organisation
  • Atmosphere
  • Did the MTBO in 2019

    Great day out navigating around the Surrey countryside using a mixture of minor roads and bridle paths. Controls were well placed so that that too far to the next control.
  • Did the Trail in 2019

    Another great events and great to do something a little different than just hitting the trails. I usually go solo but see lots of people doing it together. Organisers are very welcoming and enthusiastic and they do great cakes!
  • Did the Trail in 2019

    We completed the Mini trail - a new 1-hr trail run event with our 6 and 8 year old nephews. They absolutely loved it! It was a friendly event in beautiful countryside. A flexible start means you can get going ahead of the mass start. We have done several of the Sprint/Short 2 hour events before and the Mini Trail is a brilliant new addition.
  • Did the Trail in 2019

    Shere was our first family experience completing the 1 hour mini trail. Our 6 and 8 year old boys loved reading the maps with us, finding and clicking the checkpoints and running competitively around the trail with us. Tri-Adventure made the well organized event fun, easy to participate, and all with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We will be back!
