The Drop - Brighouse

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

The version of the drop has to be the challenge of the year, we have for you a 15-mile drop or a softer 10-mile...

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

Only 50 places 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 10 or 15 miles away etc, (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.

No Map
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 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!

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

Hi all,

Hope you are ready to start racing again, the Brighouse Drop is a go.

We have been busy for the past few days working out how to run The Drop events in a covid safe way, talking with bus companies, venues, council etc and basically getting the events going again!

The Brighouse Drop is scheduled for Sunday 9th May at 10:00 and the full event details can be found here:

Under new management!
Organic Adventure/Team OA, who originally organised the event have now passed the events over to us here at 'The Drop'. All previous entries from 2020 have been moved over to the new date for you and if you are receiving this email you can take it that you are on the start list. If you are unable to make the date, it may be possible to transfer you to a future event but we will need to know by April 2nd. 

We will be opening up the Facebook/Instagram pages in the next few days, but please use the information on the website as your race day info, it will be kept up to date for you.

Look forward to seeing you all bright and early on the 9th for a little summer adventure. 

The Drop

All 2020 events from April 1st through to August 31st

sent by Organic Adventure on 07/05/2020 at 18:40

All 2020 events from April 1st through to August 31st will be moved to 2021 dates as follows, please see image. 

Your Entry

All entries already registered and paid up to May 7th 2020, will automatically move forward to the 2021 date above, if the 2021 date is not suitable we will move your entry over to the 2022 date for you. This can only be done in the month leading up to the event so please do not send us emails requesting this now as we will not be able to process them. We are hopeful that we will not have to add any events later in the year to the list. 

If you have already entered and paid your entry fee you do not need to do anything further. There will be no name changes or additional transfers for any of these places, they are yours for either 2020 or 2021.


We wanted to inform you ourselves! 

As many of you are aware there have been a few event companies go into liquidation over the past 5 to 6 weeks, leaving many people out of pocket with no option of a future event or anything. We fear many more companies will be joining them, we have lost a t-shirt supplier and at this moment we are uncertain as to where we will be able to acquire medals or other mementoes as many of those suppliers have disappeared as well. 

We know at the beginning of this current situation we had mentioned that we would offer a 60% refund to those who genuinely could not make an adjusted date for an event, sadly, after looking into the situation we are now presented with now, financially we just can not offer to do this without ending the rest of the events and the business.

Other Events.

The smaller events such as Urban Night Series, 4 Seasons 10k etc will all go ahead on revised dates as soon as we have the go-ahead from the government. We are working on a few new events that will join in as midweek races and will let you have more info on these, but again won’t be able to release dates just yet! 

Organic Adventure

It is not all doom and gloom and as we have always done we are evolving and growing, we have a couple of new team members joining us they are already working on the new events and will be taking over the race directing at many of the other events too (Wane knows some of you just cheered!) will tell you more about them in the next few weeks or as soon as they dare send a photo in for a little bio. 

We know this is possibly not the news any of us want to hear at the moment, but we feel this is the best way to keep the events going for us all.
