Our climbing competition forms part of our Adventure Triathlon and we would love to see lots of schools taking part (however if your school didn’t manage to make it to our Adventure Mud Run, then they can still take part in this competition). We would like each school to submit teams of four pupils (2 boys and 2 girls); pupils must be in either Years 5 or 6. The planned event will be as follows:
- Route climb – a planned vertical route where each pupil climbs as high as they can, within three minutes. The higher you climb the more points you achieve for your team.
- Boulder climb – a horizontal route. You need to get past a certain point to achieve points for your team.
- Speed climb – this is a head to head vertical climb, knockout competition against other pupils. The first to the top wins. Pupils will have the opportunity to practice this route prior to their race.
The event commences at 10:00 am and we aim to be finished by 14:00. Please can all pupils taking part bring a packed lunch. They will also need to wear trainers (or climbing shoes) and clothing that allows for free movement as well as a jumper or hoodie to keep warm between events. The event costs £2.50 per child. If you think your school might be interested in registering for this event, please complete the form below as soon as possible and no later than Friday 10th March 2023.
