About the Event
Durris Dash 2023 is back with 6 brand new check points and the biggest personal challenge of the year.
We will start and finish at Kirkton of Durris Hall on Royal Deeside. The checkpoints will take you into the Durris forrest. Durris Dash 2023 will be mostly gravel terrain.
Durris Dash 2023 is a self-supported multiple checkpoint cycling and orienteering event where participants are given the location of six checkpoints within a 40km circumference of the event hub which they will need to ride to in order to collect stamps on their Rider Card. The check point locations are manned by our Event Volunteers armed with a stamp which has been sponsored by a local Scottish business (don't forget to look them up after the event!).
The location of the checkpoints will be issued by email to all registered participants 7 days prior to the event so you can decide:
- how many check point stamps you plan to collect
- which route you plan to take
- which type of bike will be best based on your route
- where the best photo opportunities and food stops will be
EVENT REGISTRATION, START & FINISH
Registration will take place between 09:00 and 09:45hrs where you will register and be issued your Rider Card which will be stamped at each of the checkpoint locations. Riders will set off at 10:00hrs after a short briefing and can take any route they choose collecting any amount of checkpoint stamps they wish in any order they choose. Once all the relevent checkpoint stamps have been collected, riders will proceed back to Event Hub to finish the event. On crossing the finish line, riders can collect refreshments and an exclusive and unique event gift to remember the event by. We may also have local business stalls at the Event Hub.
You can collect any amount of check point stamps you choose and you can change your mind during the event. At each checkpoint simply present your Rider Card to our Event Volunteers who will stamp it with our unique stamp as proof that you made it to that particular checkpoint. You can then set off to your next chosen checkpoint. Our Event Volunteers will be wearing hi-vis jackets so you can easily find them however, the location co-ordinates which will be emailed to all participants will be exact.
