The Drop 50-Mile

Using a little bit of military know how we have come up with possibly the most challenging race in the UK!

THE DROP 50 MILE

Solo or in teams. (just sign up solo and run together)

Only 20 places were available...

At registration, you will hand over all electronic devices, phones, watches, compasses etc! In return, you will be given a race number a blindfold and an emergency bag*.

You will be placed on our bus, blindfolded** and then driven to a location 100 miles away, (as the crow flies) from the event centre. Here you will be released, all you have to do is make your way back to the event centre.

We have made provision for a rest stop on route and we have a cunning plan regarding blidn folds so you won't be wearing them for 100 miles!

No Map
No GPS
No Route
No Help
No Compass

You are fully self-sufficient from the moment you leave the coach, make your own way. So run, walk or crawl your way back.

Be warned now, the distances are as the crow flies

*place all your items in this emergency bag, seal it and take it with you. top tip! start your watch before placing it in the bag then you can record your run.
**blindfolded, we will be using blackout safety goggles, we appreciate that some people may have problems but don't worry we have an alternative!

Rules:
The following will get you disqualified;
  • Using a GPS device. Recording your progress is acceptable, but the device you use will have to be sealed in the emergency bag. (We will supply this and seal it for you!)
  • Using a map
  • Using anything except your own two legs to get you to the finish
  • Breaking the seal on the emergency kit bag
