Mini Burn Family Adventure Race in Cowbridge

DISTANCE & PHASES 2.8 km run, 3 km mountain bike, 1 km kayak & 1 km foot navigation phase & 5km mountain bike. There will be some special challenges along the way.
FOOT PHASE A short undulating run on grass and a little pavement around the truffle field and chicken farm at Penllyn Estate will warm you up for the adventure ahead.
CYCLING PHASES The cycling is on hard and soft-packed trails. There will be some ascent and descent on small stony tracks and grass, and if wet, it’s likely to be very muddy in places – It will be an adventure!
KAYAKING PHASE The kayaking phase will be around four buoys in the lake. There will be plenty of water safety, and we will offer support and instruction if required. All kayaks and kayaking equipment is provided. For this event, the kayaking phase will be midway around the bike course, so we will have a small transition area for you to leave your bikes.
You may want to carry some waterproof trousers in your bag for the kayaking phase, as you will get a wet bottom! Also, if you wear bike shoes, you may want to carry your trainers as the foot orienteering phase will also occur here.
FOOT NAVIGATION PHASE Straight after the kayak, you will be given a map featuring five checkpoints. All you need to do is find them! If you choose to race competitively, there will be time penalties for any checkpoints not found. You will then get back onto your bike to finish off the rest of the course.
STAGGERED STARTS between 10:00 – 13:00. The trophy giving will be at approximately 16:00 or once all teams have finished. Participants arrive at registration approximately 30 minutes prior to your start time.
