Chosen route distance to be nominated at Start.

The routes will be defined by grid references which may be visited in any order and at each location a simple question has to be answered.  By careful selection, and taking the shortest route on public rights of way between points, a choice of the four distances may be taken.  The routes will cover downland, riverside and wooded areas with minimal road sections.  Because of the many possible choices of routes there will be no manned checkpoints so each entrant must carry sufficient food and drink for the day.

OS Landranger Map 184 (Salisbury and The Plain) or OS Explorer Map 130 (Salisbury and Stonehenge) and pencil are essential and a compass might prove useful.

All dogs must be on leads at all times.

Runners and joggers are welcome to participate.

For pre-entries a copy of the grid references will be forwarded approximately one week before the event which may then be pre-plotted.  An SAE must be enclosed to forward these, or alternatively enter your email address on Entry Form.

The event does not fall within the scope of the Adventure Activities Licensing Regulations.

Each participant takes part at his or her own risk.  The organisers are not liable for accidents, thefts, and/or damage to property.  Every effort will be made by the organisers to make this a safe, enjoyable and memorable event.
