General Notes
The famous Tour de Trigs hiking competition is set to return to the pathways and byways around North Oxfordshire, South Warwickshire and South Northamptonshire, Countryside in early Dec. The competition night hike, that visits pretty much every hill in the area, has been staged here for the past 48 years. The demanding hike – which is open to all - attracts teams of three from around the world. The competition is divided into a 50ml and 30ml (junior) course, With also a Taster Hike 15 miles, to get a feel for the competition, the 50 miles aim is to be completed in 24hr. In the very limited daylight of early Dec that means much of the Hike will be done in the dark. Neither course is a soft touch, organisers promise, and drop-out rates have been as high as 80% in the past - even among teams of service personnel. The course is revealed to competitors on the morning of the hike and needs to be plotted on an OS map - no GPS allowed. A number of awards are given including the fastest team, oldest team, and fastest mixed team
