2021 Adventure Dartmoor
July 31 - August 1£95
This ‘Adventurer’ event will challenge teams over two days across the rough terrain and, along the beautiful tracks and lanes of Dartmoor. Teams of two on MTB, route plan and find hidden checkpoints against the clock, including special time-trial sections. Strategy, planning and route selection will be the key to success. During the Event, teams will need to be self-sufficient in a vehicle with camping gear and food. We will provide a BBQ at the overnight campsite, it’s a great way to meet other teams and have a chin wag in the evening. Currently, places are limited to 12 teams to ensure the event complies with current COVID19 regulations and teams should be in a self-contained ‘bio-bubble’ and there will be no mixing between teams.
Teams of two people experienced in mountain biking and navigation, with elements up to mountain bike ‘Red Run’ level of difficulty across both open moor and forest trails.
The event is split into two stages with an overnight camping stop, fun social and BBQ. Day 1 Stage 1 is 7 hours. Day 2 Stage 2 is 5 hours 30 mins. More details of the event Stages will be given at the pre-event on-line Zoom briefing at 1900hrs 22 Jul.
