Race Description

Scenario: Operation Night Nav

Red Alert!! Activate Emergency Response Protocol!!

You are part of an elite Military Search and Rescue team and tonight you’re being deployed!!!

The pilot of a stealth bomber has blacked out, lost control of his aircraft and plummeted into a passenger jet below.

The result: Catastrophic!!

Survivors are few and far between but what’s worse, the decimated bomber was carrying a NUKE!!

Exposed and vulnerable, there is a nuclear weapon in the open!!!!


Priority 1: Locate and secure the nuke.

Priority 2: Locate and secure the pilot – who ejected right before impact

Priority 3: Rescue civilian survivors


And what will you actually do?

You will pit your wits against man and nature as you navigate across open fields, through mixed woodland and over streams and waterways to establish the location of survivors and continue your mission! Obstacles, riddles and unknown terrain will all stand in your way but failure is not an option!!

Who is Night Nav for?

Anyone. Whether you’re an elite orienteerer, a novice night navigator or just out for some fun with a difference – this night adventure challenge has something for you!!

Plus, if you’re worried about navigating – don’t be!!! Tell us beforehand and we’ll arrange a navigator for you for the night! Or bring along your GPS, either way, you’ll get around!!

And….what makes Night Nav special?

Ok, well firstly, it’s at night, and as anyone who’s ever navigated at night will tell you, that really ups the challenge and adventure!!

Secondly, it’s scenario led. So, whether you’re tasked with a downed pilot rescue operation or an item retrieval mission across a custom built obstacle course, there will be plenty to keep you entertained!!

And finally, the course is designed as a challenge and not a race. So, instead of speed, Night Nav is about the journey. YOU do the navigating, YOU discover the course and YOU plan your route, it’s not just laid out in front of you to follow blindly. Run, walk or crawl, we don’t mind. So, with a few checkpoint locations given to you and finding the remainder as you go, the challenge is this: Can you hone those primal instincts, forge your way through the darkness and complete your route?

In short Night Nav is designed to challenge you mentally and physically, whilst offering something different from the now ubiquitous 10k mud run or extreme pain, gladiatorial style activities on offer elsewhere.

Oh and we shouldn’t forget to say….. It’s FUN!!!
