RULES OF ESCAPE The Lakes
Once you start the event, you’re against on the clock! You must use your skill set to get to each check point, using clues provided and any resources that are at your disposal.
You can walk, you can run. You can use phones and members of the public for help.
You must record given checkpoints by plotting a route but either way, you need to get to your extraction point within 12 hours.
You must not be caught by the the Hunter Force.
The ESCAPE The Lakes ROUTE
You will meet the D/S for a briefing on Saturday morning and be given your checkpoints. Off you head, alone, into the mountains. After picking up clues, overcoming challenges along the way and recording your checkpoints, navigating the rest of the route is up to you.
A full list of essentials will be issued to you in due course.
The Escape The Lakes Training, run by qualified Mountain Leaders with decades of expedition and evasion experience, will give you even more skills in choosing kit for the expedition, booking on the training will give you an edge over the competition.
