The Drop - Manchester

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

The Drop has a 15, mile and a 10 mile option... you choose this on the day at morning registration!

Solo or 2 person teams. (just sign up solo and run together)

At registration you will hand over all electronic devices, phones, watches and money! In return you will be given a, a race number and an emergency bag*. You will then seal these items in the bag so you can take them with you BUT open the bag before you finish and you will be DQed

You will be placed on our bus, blindfolded** and then driven to a location 10 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 and we won't be coming to save you.

**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 of 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 other than any that we choose to give you, See example below!
  • Using anything except your own two legs to get you to the finish (the tracker can't lie!)
  • Breaking the seal on the emergency kit bag
