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.

The second of this year’s Tuesday evening Trail Challenge events will take place in the evening of Tuesday 21 June. Full details of all this year’s trail challenge races. Entries are now open – you can enter just this race and all the evening races.
