To help us plan the camping area and ensure it remains safe, please indicate if you would like to camp on the Challenge-X race entry form. When you arrive to register you will be issued with a permit for your tent/campervan. This needs to be displayed during your stay. All tents/campervans MUST be booked in advance.

If you would prefer not to camp please feel free to arrange your own accommodation off-site. You will be responsible for arranging travel to and from the 2013 adventure race locations.

If you have already entered and can’t remember if you have opted to camp, then please refer to your original confirmation email. Your booking selections will be contained in this email (so don’t delete it!).
