The Dolgellau Deluge 2023

It's the return of a free challenge event - The Dolgellau Deluge

The event will start in Dolgellau at midday on the 2nd December 2023.

The timeline on the day looks like this

12:00 Briefing.

12:15 Issue of information

12:30 Start

15:00 Finish

To make a deluge, you need to collect some information from markers known as Beautiful Unique Copper Knowledge & Effort Testers (BUCKETs). Each BUCKET has a number of Demanding Reward Identification Points (DRIPs).

When you receive information at 12:15 you will receive sheets of paper with a number of BUCKETs.

For each BUCKET you will get:

  • A six figure OS Grid Reference

  • The number of DRIPs awarded

  • A description

  • Photo

At each BUCKET you will need to collect some information to be awarded the DRIPs.

You will lose DRIPs for for each minute after 15:00 you return.

The winner in each class will be the highest score.

There will be five classes

  • Male

  • Female

  • Under 14 (must be accompanied by an over 18)

  • Mountaineer (boots and minimum 5kg rucksack)

  • Fancy dress

Teams can be solo (other than under 14) or as many as you want.

It will be impossible to collect all BUCKETs in the allowed time.

There will be special DRIPs available only to under 14s.

This is a self-sufficient challenge where you must make your own decisions about route choice, navigation and safety. There's no entry fee, and no prizes, just the warm and fuzzy feeling of completing a challenge as best as you can!

More details and how to enter this free challenge will be released at 17:00 on 15th October 2023 on this page -
