The NIGHT race is no holds barred course designed to offer individuals an opportunity to push themselves to their absolute limits. There will be zero advice or support from the ROOTS Marshalls while you are still racing, you will need to be 100% focused and self-motivated.
RACE TILL YOU QUIT
As the race progresses the distance between challenges will increase. The challenges themselves will also increase in difficulty and should you fall behind and fail to complete either in the given time then your race is over.
THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO TEST YOURSELF, FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE TRULY CAPABLE OF AND LET OUT YOUR INNER ANIMAL. RACE OR QUIT, IT’S UP TO YOU!
Feel free to contact us if your query isn't answered below
Answer: No. Its not essential but it is advised. The NIGHT race is our most extreme adventure and we are very
strict about the standard. A working knowledge of navigation and survival skills will be expected.
Yes. The NIGHT race is an individual test and we offer zero tuition during this event. One of the first challenges will be a static map stance. This is a practical exam on how to use an OS map and compass. If you fail to pass this exam you will not be allowed to continue in the race. You will need to be able to orient the map to ground. Identify eight figure grid references, take and display a bearing as well as calculate a back bearing.
These are all very basic navigation techniques and are taught to Seeds during our DAY and LOST adventure races.
Answer: We require all racers to be present the night before (Friday 25th October). This is to complete documentation and have your emergency kit checked by a Roots Marshal. You will then get a full nights sleep before starting at 05:00 on Saturday morning.
There will be a warm up, a packet pick up, a kit check and a static map stance before racers are allowed out on course. The quicker you do these the more time you have to complete the course. The course will close at 09:00 on Sunday morning. This gives you time to grab a shower and a nap before Sunday lunch. We think all our adventures should end with a feast!
Answer: No. We've got you covered - TWO NIGHTS accommodation at ROOTS HQ on the start and finish line is included in your ticket price. No matter when you quit you will have a hot shower and a warm bed to relax in while we wait to see who makes it across the finish line.
Answer: Included in your race entry pack there is a complete packing list. This covers all race and non-race equipment you will need for the weekend from towels and food, right the way through to the detailed race kit list.
Answer: This is not a mud run. Your race entry is high but it includes 2 night accommodation, a hoodie and other race goodies depending on how long you last. It is a small intimate race for a select group of humans. Ticket price is just a contribution towards insurance and the travel expenses of the Marshalls.
You're paying us to provide you with a safe environment where you will push yourself to the edge of your current mental and physical threshold. And, you're paying so that should you fail, we're there pick you up and take you back to HQ.
Answer: No. previously we have had teams race and ammended some of the checkpoints to allow a single team member to complete the challenge for their team. This year all racers will need to complete all challenges. If you wish to run with a fellow racer and share your experience with them, you are completely free to do so but all racers must complete all challenges to be able to continue.
Answer: No. You will have emergency only access to your phone but use will disqualify you from the event with immediate effect.
Answer: No. We do our best to capture photos during the race and we have a social media Marshall covering the adventure as it unfolds but there are not official photographers on course. Any and all pictures we capture will be uploaded and a link shared to all racers to use as they see fit. Please inform a member of staff if there is any reason you do not witsh to have your photo taken or used to market future events.
Answer: No. Unfortunately due to the nature of the event there is a NO refund policy. You must accept this before signing up.
