April 22, 2008
I’ve had a thought for a while about organising a weekend competition comprising of a series of challenges for teams to complete – something similar to the kind of thing offered by http://www.ratraceadventure.com/ – but more suited to a rural/urban mix.
Considering the mix of people around Warwick Uni who are into this sort of thing I reckon we could come up with an interesting set of events:
Cycling – Hill Climb (to the top of Ilmington hill coming out of Ilmington is what I had in mind – ouch)
Running – cross country if poss
Rowing – Leamington or Stratford
Horse riding – perhaps up at Moreton in Marsh – might be a bit too specialised
Field Archery – or perhaps clay pigeon shooting
Climbing (warwick climbing wall would be good for this)
And probably a load of others. You’d have a team of 3 people to balance expertise and strengths and have to complete the challenges over a weekend. Points would be scored on either the time it took to complete a challenge or in the case of archery or disc golf on some other basis.
Would probably take quite some organisation but could be fun.
