The Hillingdon Triathletes Autumn Trail Quest event is open to runners & walkers. You can do them as individuals, pairs or as teams, with up to 6 in each team. The event is run as a normal orienteering event, except it is dark (bring a torch).

START TIMES - The event has a staggered start and, as such, participnats can turn up any time between 18:00 and 19.30 to start their race. The event finishes at 21.00 at which time the results will be computed. 


How it works...

You arrive and sign on.

You will be given a map, which will have up to 20 stations marked on it. You will also be given a card, which has to be stamped at each of the stations you reach. The stations are illuminated, so they can be seen from a distance. The route you take between each station is your choice. The harder a station is to reach or locate the more points it is worth. There is a time limit, and if you exceed it you will lose points.


Orienteers (run/walk) have 1hr 30 mins from when they start

There are usually teams that end up with a negative score. 
There are prizes for the highest scoring teams.

These events are suitable for a complete cross section of people from fast, competitive runners to people who would like to stroll around the countryside in the pitch dark. They start and finish at a pub, which serves meals, so the evening always ends happily.

What you need: 
Proper clothing for the weather. 
Running, walking or hiking shoes for a mixed terrain. 
A fully charged torch (head torches are great but a hand torch with fully charged batteries at a minimum). 
Some cash for a drink afterwards!
