Introduction | Results | Photos
  • Our ninth consecutive year of activities around Longfield. This year sex, er ... I mean six, events to test you.


  • 10:45 to 11:00
    Arrival. Just time for a cuppa and calorific cake. All day refreshments provided.
    Team nomination for the rest of the day: Will you be competing solo? As husband and wife? Father/son(s). Mother/daughter(s). Family group?

  • 11:15 to 12:30
    1. Treasure Search Trial
    A contest to test your searching capabilities. Search Longfield to find up to 30 small tubes (there will be a sample at the start). Inside there will be a four-digit number which you must record to prove you have found it. One point for each one found; ten points deducted if the number is wrong (so that you don't guess!). Each team will be given the location of one hiding  place to get you started and spread the field. Thereafter you are on your own.
    All the hiding places will be searcher-friendly i.e. you won't have to wade through nettles or dig holes, although some may require the reach of an adult or the crouch of a child.
    Much stealth will be required so that you don't advertise your finds to other competitors.
    Individuals start at 11:15; pairs at 11:20; groups at 11:25. Hand in your answer sheet no later than 12:30 (you'll lose a point for every minute late!) for totting-up points for prizes.

  • 12:30 until lunch is ready
    2. Silly Walking Trial:
    Follow a short course walking forwards. Stop. Reverse your course walking backwards. Your forwards time and backwards time will be recorded and the times must be as close as possible. Competitors will be ranked in order of time difference.
    While you are waiting for your turn laugh at your fellow competitors or make a start on the lunch-time Grub Quiz ...

  • 12:30 to 14:15
    3. Grub Quiz: Twenty questions to test your general knowledge while you nosh. A twenty-first question as a tie-decider. No smart phone, tablet, laptop Googling or phoning friends. You are on your own.

  • 13:00ish to 14:15
    Lunch. A sumptuous BBQ (with veggy options) while you swap tales about your morning. Eat as much as you like - you'll be able to burn calories with an after-lunch walk. Hand in your Grub Quiz answer sheet.

  • 14:15 to 15:30
    4. Time/Navigation Trial: After lunch there will be a set walk around Longfield and local footpaths - total distance of about 2-3 miles. You'll need to deposit any timepiece you have before you start and predict exactly how long the walk will take you. There are penalties for getting back too early or too late. You'll have to record information on route to prove you've completed the walk.

  • 15:30 to 16:00
    5. Toss the Chicken Trial: A big favourite last year. Throw a chicken (not a real one!) and try to get as close as possible to the target. Closest wins.

  • 16:00 to 16:30
    Tea break. Time for a tea break and the 6. Distance Trial. There will two sticks in the field. Measure/guess the distance between them to the nearest centimetre without using any measuring instrument, or calibrated feet!

  • 16:30+
    Awards presentation.
    There will be Gold (coloured), Silver (coloured) and Bronze (coloured) medals for first, second and third on each event.
    Points will also be awarded per event: 1st=25, 2nd=18, 3rd=15, 4th=12, 5th=10, 6th=8, 7th=6, 8th=4, 9th=2, 10th=1 (points apportioned per person if you compete as a couple/family).
