Please enter your team well before the closing date to avoid disappointment - the event is so popular that we have had to turn late team entries away.

To make it fair to all, your entry will only be placed in the draw on receipt of your entry fee by BACS, or by cheque.

The draw for team numbers and start times will be made during the week following 28th January 2022. Team entries will only be placed in the draw if they are complete (ie at least three names with personal details) and the payment has been received. The draw will then be sent to team leaders by email, and the full draw will be on the website from 4th February 2021.

  • Indoor accommodation on Friday and Saturday night.
  • Cooked meals for Saturday breakfast and evening meal, and Sunday breakfast.
  • Drinks and snacks at most checkpoints.
  • Transport (where necessary).
  • Communications and Administration.
  • Certificates and Individual Trophies for the winners.
