    The Steeplechase.

    Navigate your way to "12 Steeples" in Surrey.

    This is a self supported, self navigation, map reading, compass bearing, gps device holding 130mile-ish race.

    Each runner is issued with 12 envelopes, each envelope contains the name of the Steeple the runner must navigate to before returning to HQ to pick up the next envelope. These envelopes will be issued in a random order, with the steeples set at different distances. It's up to you to organise your kit for that distance & to prepare yourself with enough food & water. If we have to intervene & come out to issue you with supplies, it's race over.

    Once you've arrived at the Steeple, you will have to locate the CTE package & record your visit, making sure you bring your evidence back with you.

    Once back at HQ, you'll be issued with your next envelope, you then make your plans, stock up your pack & head back out again.

    The first runner to record all 12 Steeples & get back to HQ wins.

    Distance- 130miles if your Nav is good. Extra Extra Bonus miles if not.
