‘Star trekkers’ invited to put their best feet forward for the annual night time walk across Exmoor this March.
THERE is still time to enter a team and take part in the StarTrek charity night time walk across Exmoor on March 1-2.
Now in its 22 year and organised by the Rotary clubs of Ilfracombe, the event has chosen to support the Chemotherapy Appeal as its main charity for a second consecutive year, as well as its longstanding support for both hospices.
Each charity already has a team entered in the night time orienteering trek across and as-yet-unnamed part of Exmoor, but there is still time for businesses, organisations and groups of friends to sign up and get in training for the big night – plus gather sponsorship.
Teams of four to six people have to navigate a carefully contrived route, with maps and torches essential – plus there will be clues to solve on the way, with plenty of camaraderie among the teams.
You may also want to watch:
Check points, radio communication, search and rescue, first aid and paramedics are all on hand for the rare occasions that something may go wrong.
The route averages 14-16 miles each year, but new for this year is an optional Half Trek to enable first timers or those unable to complete the longer distance, to still take part.
