Autumn 2018 Adventure Race

Scout jumps obstacleTeams competed in our toughest Apex Adventure Race yet on Sunday morning.

The 4k race took them across difficult terrain, through trees, under tunnels, across muddy swamps and into water as well as a series of challenging obstacles. They were warned they would get wet and dirty and that was just part of the challenge!
