This year’s huge Apex Extreme event will now be held a week earlier than originally planned. The massive adventure event is now taking place from Friday 30th September until Sunday 2nd October 2011, at a stunning new location in West Yorkshire.
We’re already very busy coming up with plenty of new ideas for this year’s competition which will include the introduction of an ‘urban challenge’ as well as a stack of regular must-see adventure activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, mountain biking and head-spinning high ropes courses. It’ll be a weekend packed full of challenge and adventure for hundreds of Explorers and members of the Scout Network from across the UK.
Another key date for your diary is Tuesday 30th August 2011. That’s the day when entries will open for the Apex Extreme. After feedback from teams taking part in our last event we have now simplified the booking system and teams will be able to instantly register and pay online for their teams to secure a place in the competition. To avoid confusion and to speed the process up, online payment will now be the only way to register your teams for Apex Challenge events.
It’s also worth remembering that this year’s Apex Ovenight Challenge sold out in 36 hours so spend some time now working out who’s going to be on your team and getting your payment ready. Expect more updates on the Apex website over the next few weeks!
