Dragnet 2015 Practice Hike

What is Dragnet?

The Dragnet Challenge is to complete a 35 mile trek on foot in the wilds of the Lake District.  Teams of four leave the “top secret” drop off point on the Friday night and navigate back to the defined base camp, to arrive on the Sunday morning. On the way you must evade the teams of experienced searchers who can take “lives”.  Each life lost will reduce your team’s chance of winning the competition as the winners will be the team to arrive at the Base Camp check in point nearest to 11:00, with the least number of lives lost.

With reference to the last picture; I said that if they wore trainers on this hike they would regret it…..He regretted it!
