This event has a variety of terrain and a lot of hill walking so a good level of fitness will be required.

Join Dan for an exciting day of map-based teamwork and friendly competition across the hillside overlooking the beautiful Yorkshire town of Ilkley.

Starting with a walkthrough of orienteering, mapwork and what you'll be searching for, you'll then group up in 3s and 4s with your fellow walkers and take to the hills to begin hunting!

After a couple of hours we'll regroup in a central location for lunch, then back to the hunt once more. The winning team will earn a prize.

This walk is roughly 13km/8 miles, with several steep ascents and descents, crossing a wide mix of terrain. Expect sections of mud, marsh, rocky and uneven footing. Sometimes you'll need to leave the beaten track and go into the undergrowth!

A working pen and a navigational compass would be very useful items to pack.

Well-behaved OutdoorDogs are very welcome.
