Adventure Run

This is the second Adventure Run organised by Birch Hall Adventures and is aimed at giving young people the opportunity to run a race which is a mixture of running and obstacles, some of which will involve potentially getting muddy and wet!!  The race is approximately 2.5km in length and there will be an obstacle every 250m or so.  Pupils will compete as pairs – a pair is a boy and girl from either Years 5 or 6, e.g. a Year 5 boy and a Year 6 girl or a boy and girl both from Year 6.  Some of the obstacles will require them to work as a team.  It is anticipated that a pair will take 20-30 minutes to complete the course.


The fastest competitors from the weekday events will be invited back with their families for our Finals Event on Saturday 10th December at 10am. Following the Finals Event there will be an opportunity for a siblings race and an open adult event (5km)
