Cranleigh 1 hour Mini Trail Run

Cranleigh Bandroom, Cranleigh, Surrey

Organiser's Description

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. 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. Canicross runners are most welcome - dogs go for free!

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. The CPs are located much closer to one another than in the other events. Unlike other events, this is not a race, so there are no prizes for those collecting the most CPs. You plan your own strategy and route, deciding how many CPs you want to visit. Distance covered depends on how many checkpoints are visited; it can be anything from 3k to around 8k, and depends on your level of fitness, and on your running and map reading skills.

Cranleigh Bandroom, Nr Cranleigh Leisure Centre, Village Way, Cranleigh GU6 8AF

Cranleigh is about 8 miles southeast of Guildford in Surrey, and centres around the junction of two B roads to the East of the A281 Guildford to Horsham road.

The village is on a number of bus routes, serving among others Guildford, Horsham, Godalming and Ewhurst. The main operator is Arriva Guildford & West Surrey, which has a depot in Cranleigh.

Arriving by train will require a taxi as the nearest stations are Chilworth or Gomshall, 7 miles away. Guildford is 9 miles to the North with the best connections.

Navigate on your own or in groups for 1 hour, collecting as many as possible of the 10 check points available.

You will receive a waterproof map, a race number, and a dibber. The dibber will start and stop your hour. At each checkpoint marked on the map, there will be a clip which can be used to punch your map.

You can start the Mini Trail at any time between 9:15am and 10am, and there is also the option to set off with all the others at the 10am mass start. Minimum age to enter alone is 16.

Registration opens at 08:00am. Start from 09:15am

Visit the registration desk to collect your Race Pack which includes your marked waterproof map, race number and dibber.

After the event, download your dibber at the registration desk and show the punches on the map, before enjoying a cup of tea/coffee and a cake.
