Forest Evasion

Forest Evasion is our annual competition with an aim of meeting and interacting with other like minded clubs. This page is designed to give an overview of what to expect from the competition, full rules will be sent to participants ahead of the competition.

The Competition

A 24 hour competition designed to appeal to outdoor societies. Teams are either 'Evaders' or 'Catchers'. The Evaders task is to navigate between a number of given checkpoints while the Catchers attempt to stop them. Each time a Catching team catches and Evading team they gain points and the Evaders lose a life. Ultimately the teams with the most lives and the most points after 24 hours are the winners.

When is it?

The 2017 competition will take place on the weekend of 21st-23rd April.


We're doing things differently this year and are heading to Thetford Forest!
