The 2022 Event
New Venue & Date
The event returns for 2022 with an exciting new venue, summertime date and management challenge theme. The theme for 2022 is Sustainability and keynote speeches will be delivered by endurance athlete and adventure Lowri Morgan and ex-professional England rugby union player Andy Gomarsall.
Set amid sunlit woodland on the banks of the river Wye, the new event base offers an ideal launchpad to jump into nature on a wild weekend out of the office.
Racquety Farm is a two-minute walk from the centre of Hay-on-Wye, on the border of England and Wales, in the shadow of the stunning Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Famous for its book shops and the world-renowned ‘Hay Festival’, this charming market town is bursting with quirkiness, culture and adventure opportunities. You will find ample accommodation options, whether you want to camp out in a secluded shepherd hut, or check into a cosy B&B or chic boutique hotel.
A new venue means all-new adventure race stages to challenge yourself on. As well as physical mountain bike, run and hike stages taking you up Hay Bluff and along Offa’s Dyke, we’ll also be challenging teams on the water alongside new archery and logic challenges to test the mind and body.
