Would your class love an adventure involving lots of mud and water? Look no further! Birch Hall Adventures are holding their fourth annual Adventure Run this December. Our intent is always to create a space for fun exercise and a chance for kids to embrace the outdoors. Therefore we are opening our fields again and giving pupils in Year 5 and 6 the opportunity to journey through an epic race dotted with obstacles. The course is approximately 2.5km and there will be an obstacle around every 250m. Pupils will compete in pairs made up of a boy and girl. (For example a year 5 boy and a Year 6 girl.)  Some of the obstacles will require the duo to work as a team, and it’s anticipated that a pair will take 20-30 minutes to complete the course. The quicker the team complete the adventure, the greater the chance of qualifying for the finals.


The fastest competitors from the weekday events will be invited back with their families for our epic Finals Event. Following the Finals Event there will be an opportunity for siblings (2.5km) and adults to race (5km).
