You are expected to use your understanding of the terrain & conditions you’re heading into and make appropriate kit decisions and route choices accordingly. This includes the unsupported overnight wild camp.

Day 2 you receive a new map and choose a second route back to the event centre. The teams who visit the most checkpoints in the quickest time are the winners.
