Did the race 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 race 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 race 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 race 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!
