'A walk (or run) between a series of unmanned checkpoints. Each has a grid reference together with a simple clue the answers to which you collect on the way round. This not only lets the organisers know you have followed the route(!) but also adds to the enjoyment. The clues are given in sequence and your time starts after you have had time to plot your route on the map ... Bring compass, map case, pencil and maps. You need to be able to read a map! Late finishers will need a torch.' Usually Early January.
