The Drop - York

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,10-mile and now a 30-mile option...

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 race number and an emergency bag*. You will then have to 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, 15 or even 30-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.

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 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!

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 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

Events 2020

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.


Refunds

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.
