ultra-sprint orienteering

planetFear Ultra Sprint - July 14th, Sheffield

The planetFear Ultra Sprint in Graves Park, Sheffield will be the most intense orienteering experience yet seen in the UK. Based on the Orient-Show concept developed in Russia and France the races will start and finish into an intricate 'labyrinth' in full view of the commentary team and spectators. The middle part of the courses will challenge competitors with a steep forested hillside covered in fine vegetation detail. Courses will be between 400-800m in length on a 1:1000 map so everything will happen very quickly! Whoever deals with the technical and physical demands the best will walk away with their share of the massive £500 prize fund from planetFear.

The winners will be decided over a series of head-to-head knockout rounds and everyone will get the chance to race at least four times to decide the final placings. A super final will take place in which the top-ranked male goes head-to-head with the top-ranked female to decide the ultimate ultra sprint champion!

Your £5 entry fee also entitles you to enjoy the other activities going on at Cliffhanger including The British Bouldering Championships, an Alpine Beer Festival, Come-And-Try-It Climbing Walls, Reverse Bungee And Other White Knuckle Rides, A Guinness World Record Dyno Competition, Live Music, shops and much, much more. Entry to this event costs £5 anyway so by entering the ultra sprint you can get in for free!

A special invitational free entry is open to members of the British Team/Squad or any other national team.
