Date: 13/06/2020 7.30pm Start
A return of the madness that was our first foray into the charity raising events with our clue solving, map reading, running event.
All profits raised will be donated to our charity Virgin money giving page.
Entry fee of £40 per team. (All profit from this after costs will be donated to our charity)
Teams will register between 6pm to 7.15pm Race Briefing at 7.20pm with the hand out of the letters. Race starts at 7.30pm when you can open your letters & read your first set of clues. All electronic devices are allowed! You can google as much as you want on this race.
Teams of four required. We will allow up to 20 teams of four people to take on the event. Each team may have one person on a bicycle if they want. There is no added advantage in this, but if a cyclist wants to join your team then they may.
You will be given 10 Landmarks in Surrey, each with its six figure grid reference.
You will be given a letter with four clues in it. Each clue will pertain to one of the landmarks. It is up to you & your team to work out the clues & establish which landmark it relates to.
You then use your OS explorer map 146 to plot the quickest route to the landmarks & return back to base. The first team to get back after successfully running to each landmark will win the coveted Clue-Doh! Award.
Every finisher will receive a memento of the night.
The twist in the tail…. Each team will have to use whatsapp to communicate with HQ. You will take a photo of your team in front of the Landmark & send it to HQ informing us if its landmark A,B or C etc You will then be told a simple Correct or incorrect. If it’s correct, you can move on to your next landmark, incorrect & you’ve got some more working out to do.
Additional clues can be bought for each landmark at a cost of £10 each. The clues will get easier with each one you buy.
Alternatively, you may “buy” the Landmark itself for £40.
The route will still need to be worked out by yourselves though. We can offer no assistance in that, unless you get lost then we will help where we can.
As before, we will operate on an Honour system, with no money on the night changing hands, you will be notified within a couple of days after the event of what your team owes. It’s then up to you to put the money in.
Average distance ran in the first year was 19 miles.
This is a non supported event out on the course, so make sure you carry everything you think you’ll need on the run.
