What is trail challenge and who can take part?

Trail Challenge races are mass-start TRAIL races with a difference.  A series of checkpoints define the courses which are run over tracks and trails - the CHALLENGE arises from choosing the fastest route between them.

All competitors are given a detailed map of the area and an electronic 'finger' (as used in adventure racing) to record your arrival at checkpoints.  The electronic 'finger' (also known as a SportIdent dibber) allows us to produce instant results showing your time between checkpoints, giving you hours of harmless fun comparing split times!

10k and 6k are open to anyone.  Mini Trail Challenge (2k) is for juniors under 15 on 31 December 2005.
