Effingham Adventure Race (Surrey Hills) Mini Trail Run
Length: 1 hours
Location: Howard of Effingham School, Lower Road, Effin
1 hour Mini Trail Run – £10, £15 OTD – Trail Run only, using a 1:25k waterproof map, plan your route and navigate to as many of the 10 clip style checkpoints as possible in 1 hour. This event is ideal for families with children up to the age of 16, and for those who want to improve their navigation and/or trail running skills. The CPs are located much closer to one another than in the other events. Unlike the other events, this is not a race, so there are no prizes for those collecting the most CPs.
Canicross runners are most welcome - dogs go for free!
You plan your own strategy and route, deciding how many CPs you want to visit and in what order. Distance covered depends on how many checkpoints are visited; it can be anything from 3km to around 8km, and depends entirely on your level of fitness, and on your running and map reading skills.
Registration opens at 8.30am to give competitors time to collect their maps and to plan their strategy and routes.
There is a flexible start available from 9.15am to 9.45am, as well as a Mass Start at 10.00am.
This event is ideal for families wanting to run with their kids (u-16). It is equally suitable for people new to adventure racing, and who want to practice their map reading and compass skills. Athletes looking for a quick run in beautiful countryside will also enjoy this event.
Solo entries as well as teams of up to four are welcome.
