With an ethos of self-reliance and endurance, competitors are at the mercy of the elements…and their own decisions. Teams of two receive a map with a series of checkpoints they must visit over the two days. Competitors must carry everything they need for the two days including an overnight wild camp at the end of day one. There are seven course options of varying distance and ascent to choose from.
