Spring 2008 event - Facts and figures

Our Spring 2008 Overnight Challenge had more activity bases than any of our previous events have ever had. There were 16 hidden in the darkness of Sherwood Pines Forest Park to challenge our teams. As well as some familiar favourites from previous events there were several surprises as well.

This video shows a graphical representation of where each time was at any point during the competition, based on the times they visited each of the activity bases and controls. Each coloured spot represents a different team. The pie chart with the numbers in the centre is counting up the hours from when the first team set off.

The tables below tell you how many teams made it to each of the main activity bases as well as the other controls.
