Length: 50 miles
Location: Perth - Scotland

The NIGHT is the hardest self-navigated checkpoint race on the planet.

You will receive a grid reference of a checkpoint and be expected to
plot your route and cover the distance in the time given.

When you arrive at your checkpoint within the allocated time, you will be given a survival-based challenge to complete.

Only when you have completed the challenge will you be issued with your next grid reference.

It may be simple, but it’s NOT easy…

You have 24 hours to cover around 50 miles and complete 20 challenges.
You will be unaided. You will be unsupported. You will be 100% self-sufficient.
