Overview

The shelters will be built in a grassy field. There is a car park adjacent to the field, but it can only accommodate one unloading vehicle per team. There will be another car park available which is a slightly further distance from the field.

Teams are restricted to a maximum of two vehicles per team due to the car park sizes.

The Shelter Building aspect of your challenge will be worth 25% of your total challenge points.

While challenging your body, why not challenge your mind?

On Saturday teams will trek through the Hope Valley in a series of mental challenges. We have handpicked treks to suit your fitness level along with mental challenges dotted throughout the route designed to test your general knowledge, from country capitals to ‘Cracking the Code’.

Route Options

Map (New!):

  • Long route – 25 – 30 kilometres
  • Compulsory route – 15 – 20 kilometres

You will be scored on the level of difficulty of the route and the time it takes for the entire team to complete the trek.

Teams must all choose the same trek and complete it together. The trek will not be considered completed until the last team members turn in their timing chip.

You will have the option to stop and participate in mental challenges along the route to accumulate even more points. You will need to decide if it is worth taking the extra time to complete the mental challenges or if it is better to skip them and reduce the overall time for completing your trek.

Navigation

Remember you can’t get by using your trusty sat nav! You will have to navigate the route the old-fashioned way – with a map. Perhaps it’s a good time to brush up on map reading?
