Bowland Challenge clue


At each point, teams must find the answer to a question related to that location.

It could be the manufacturer of a gate, the number of rungs on a ladder stile or the date a building was built.

Whatever the question, multiple choice answers are provided.

A correct answer wins the team the points allocated to that position.

A wrong answer and the points are deducted.


Teams will randomly draw their start time and depart at intervals. Teams must decide and inform Bowland Challenge Control the time, between 11:00 and 14:00hrs, that they plan to arrive at the midpoint check-in. Teams must provide Bowland Challenge Control with an outline route plan for both the morning and afternoon route prior to their departure.
