Go mad for Plymouth M.A.D. 2010!
After the huge success of last
year’s Plymouth Marjon Adventure Day (M.A.D.) the UCP Marjon Outdoor Adventure
team and a host of partners are holding the second Plymouth M.A.D. on Sunday 3rd
Plymouth M.A.D. is Plymouth's only urban adventure challenge where teams or individuals race in a multi-sport test of navigation, endurance and skills on a course that is only revealed hours before the event begins.
Cycling, orienteering, running, abseiling, wall climbing and rowing all feature during Plymouth M.A.D., with the routes designed for a variety of competitors with different fitness levels and abilities.
For those new to Adventure Racing, there’s a short route that will introduce entrants to this exciting sporting activity. For the experienced Adventure Race enthusiasts, the long route will test fitness and endurance. The long route will take entrants away from Plymouth to the fringes of Dartmoor, down to the sea and back to the race headquarters at UCP Marjon. The route will take in a variety of challenges over a range of terrain.
Regardless of the route taken (short or long), the course will take advantage of the green space and beautiful natural surroundings of Plymouth, and will test fitness and levels of endurance.
Prizes (provided by sponsors Cogs-Bikes and Forces-Nutrition) are available for the winners of each category, although the focus of the day is for all involved to have fun and enjoy ‘the great outdoors’ that Plymouth has to offer. Take part as an individual or enter a team (maximum three adults per team). The minimum entry age is 14 years; under 18 teams can consist of a maximum of 4 people, but must have at least one adult in the team.
In addition all entrants will be entitled to a free bike service (worth £35) complements of Cogs-Bikes in Plymouth, and a discount code that can be used on the Forces-Nutrition website.
With more thrills, spills and surprises than last year there is still the opportunity to take part. Book before 1st September and receive a £5 discount off each entry fee (entry fee £20 each after 1st September; £15 for under 18s).
