Club Night Activity Series Info

Club night activities are primarily social activities normally held on a Tuesday evening. In the winter months they generally take place in towns and involve a combination of navigation running and some form of puzzle solving. Some treat them competitively but most run around in pairs or small groups. During the summer months (and occasionally during the winter) we have a run around the beautiful Sussex countryside, no controls or timing but a series of routes are recommended and shown on a map. Sessions last an hour and activities are set up to cater for a range of fitness levels.

A copy of the keeping safe at club night leaflet is available here: Clubnight Keeping Safe Handout.
