A TRAIL CHALLENGE is a mass start cross-country race over tracks and trails with a difference. The course is not marked out by marshals but is instead defined by checkpoints that are marked on a professionally made colour map. The TRAIL CHALLENGE arises from choosing the fastest route between them.
