Cranleigh 2 hour Short Adventure Race

Cranleigh Bandroom, Cranleigh, Surrey

Organiser's Description

The nature of Adventure Racing is that anyone of any age and fitness can take part, from the very beginner to the ultra racer. In 2 hours, using a 1:25k waterproof map, you plan your route and navigate to as many checkpoints as possible within the time. Starting on foot, there will be one transition to mountain bikes. Mass start at 10.00am.

You plan and run your own race, although there are prizes for the ones who collect the most points in each category. You decide how many CPs you want to visit and in what order. Distance covered depends on how many checkpoints are visited, and can be anything from 20k to around 30+k, dependent on your level of fitness, as well as your running/MTB and map reading skills.

Registration opens at 8.30am to give competitors time to collect their maps and to plan their strategy and routes.

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.

The Tri-Adventure 2 hour 'Short' combines off-road trail running, mountain biking, and navigation over a 2 hour course. You will receive a waterproof marked map, race number and dibber.

Registration opens at 08:30am. The event has a mass start on foot at 10:00am and finishes at 12:00 noon.

Using the waterproof map provided, you must navigate to as many checkpoints as you can within the 2 hour limit.

There is a maximum of 20 checkpoints, split evenly between the run and mountain bike. You decide how long you spend on each discipline. Competitors must collect a minimum of one run checkpoint and one bike checkpoint to qualify. Each checkpoint is worth 10 points.

Competitors will incur a penalty of 1 point for every 30 seconds they are late back.

After the event, download your dibber in the event HQ, where you will receive your results instantly.
